Wednesday 7th November
Our Ancient Greek Day has been brought forward one day to Wednesday 7th November.
Welcome to the Whale Class page!
Whale class is taught by Miss Moreton, and supported by Mrs Roberts. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any queries or questions and I will reply as soon as possible.
Autumn Term Learning
When we return in September, out first topic is called 'Scrumdiddlyumptious!'.
The children will tuck in and enjoy a yummy journey of discovery, tasting fruits, vegetables and some tantalizing treats. We will be writing a range of genres linked to food including: recounts, recipes and instructions, nonsense poetry, non-chronological reports and adverts. We will be learning how to use a map, whilst developing our location and fair-trade knowledge. We will be learning about significant historical figures like James Lind. Within Science, we will be learning about nutrition and how to keep ourselves healthy.
In Maths, we will be developing our understanding of Place Value, Addition and Subtraction. The children will be developing their mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills on a daily basis.
Please find a book list below which is full of books relevant to our new topic. If you get the opportunity to enjoy some of these at home that would be brilliant! Also, if you do have any of these books, particularly Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl which will be our class reader, please do bring them into school for us to share together.
Morrisons School Trip
Whale Class had a great time exploring scrumdiddlyumptious foods at Morrisons. They got to visit the fish counter, meat counter, the bakery and the fruit and vegetable stalls. Take a look at what we got up to.
