Half Term has arrived and I hope the children have a well-deserved rest. These few weeks have flown by and the class settled back in to the routine of school life quickly and smoothly. From now until Christmas we shall be looking at the great Welsh Princes who fought against the English, we shall be introduced to tales from The Mabinogion and write our own. We will also be working on our multiplication tables and measuring objects to the nearest millimetre. Pupils' reading is improving nicely and their comprehension of both fiction and non-fiction texts is developing. Please continue to encourage your child to read at home. They may bring their book in as often as they want to and exchange it for a new one. Homework will be set each weekend in Google Classroom and on Mathletics and I hope that your child will complete it. They are used to accessing their Hwb account and should have no problems doing so from home. If there are any issues, please contact me on HarriesC38@Hwbcymru.net
PE days will now change to Mondays and Thursdays as the class will be taught by a specialist dance teacher on Thursdays. Mrs Marks is known to the pupils as she taught them last year too. On Mondays we shall focus on balancing and personal resilience. As before half term, your child may wear their PE kit to school on these days.
As a school, we shall be fundraising for Children in Need soon so look out for further information.
Welcome to Class 4!
It is great to be back together, both as a whole school and for us who were last together in Year 1. I've been very impressed with how much the children have matured and developed and made such good progress since I saw them last. To celebrate Roald Dahl's birthday, we read Fantastic Mr Fox and we even found a letter from him in the yard during our Daily Mile. The children immediately set to work creating plans and developing ideas to help him, and some of us even thought we saw him in the woods outside our classroom! We looked at the features of a letter and used them whilst writing our replies. Using information given near the end of the book, we were able to compile shopping lists for Mr Fox using data handling and numeracy skills. What a 'fantastic' couple of weeks we have had.
Our topic this year is 'Wales' and we are starting by looking at who the Celts were during this half term, along with where in the world Wales is, its geographical features and boundaries and researching animals who live here. The Age of the Princes awaits us later on in the term, with fantastical tales from The Mabinogion to delight and inspire us.
PE days are Monday and Tuesday until half term and due to the present circumstances, pupils may wear their PE kit to school on those days.
Reading books will be sent home and these may be returned as soon as they have been read.
