Class Teacher: Miss Bateman
What a fab term to end the year! This term we have been looking at two exciting books: ‘The Pet Shop’ and ‘The Snail and the Whale’. The children have really enjoyed acting out the story lines and writing their own new pages. We created our own skeleton dogs in art and even had a life-size skeleton in our classroom!
In Maths we have been looking at 2D and 3D shapes and have been working on our addition and subtraction. The children have really enjoyed using our new bead strings to solve their tricky subtraction problems.
We have had so much fun practising and performing our nativity and everyone hasn’t stopped talking about how great all of the children were! Thank you to all of the parents for sorting out the costumes. I can see that a lot of hard work went into making them!
Thank you for all of the support you have given me during my time here at Marshfield Primary and I wish you all the best for the future.
A Welcome from Mrs Grainger:
Hello, my name is Mrs Grainger and I will be the teacher in Van Gogh from January. I am really looking forward to getting to know you and your children in the New Year.
Our topic next term will be A Frozen World where will be learning about the landscape and life on Antarctica, as well as finding out about the explorer Scott of the Antarctic and his race to the South Pole. In English we will be focusing on The Emperor’s Egg to support us to write narratives, non-chronological reports and poetry. In Maths we will be learning about measurement of length, weight, volume and time as well as using multiplication and division to solve problems.
Our PE days will continue to be Wednesday and Friday. Home learning will also continue to be sent home on Friday to be returned for the following Wednesday.
Van Gogh are making the most of the sunshine and are making up some dance moves and breaking the sequence down into smaller parts.
