Indigo Class 2019 - 2020

Mrs O’Connor

Indigo Class Teacher

Welcome back and Hello Spring Term!


I hope you all had a wonderful break and I wish you a 2020 filled with happiness, kindness and smiles.


Back to it now, and what will this term bring? Our focus is on Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’. We will be working as a class to explore the story, characters and setting. We will then be working with other schools to create a performance, which we will perform at The New Vic, Newcastle-Under-Lyme.


Spellings will continue to be introduced on Fridays and stuck in the reading diary. We will review these over the following week so the children become familiar with spelling patterns as well as the words and meanings. They will be tested the following Thursday. We will also be focusing on the statutory spellings for years 3, 4, 5 and 6- these are at the bottom of this page.


Home Learning will continue to be handed out every Thursday and checked the following Thursday.


PE will continue on a Tuesday this term.


For other curriculum areas please see this term’s ‘cloudy overview’ at the bottom of the page.


A huge plea for you to continue to share ‘reading experiences’ with your children this term. Retrieval and inference skills have come on leaps and bounds last term, this term we need to focus on increasing vocabulary- finding out the meaning of new words and exploring them and incorporating them into our own writing. Sometimes, the best way to do this initially is verbally, so talking about what is being read and explaining unfamiliar words is crucial to the development of language skills.


I can’t wait for another fabulous term in Indigo Class! Thank you for all your support with home learning requests, teacher for ten and support with reading.


The quote for this term


‘The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice.’


And still remember




Many Thanks
