Miss Keatman's Class 2021 - 2022
Welcome Back! I hope that you have had a lovely, exciting Christmas. Father Christmas has definitely earned a welcome rest.
Hopefully, this page will keep you well informed of our plans for not only the year, but also the current term and keep you up-to-date with our weekly adventures.
The children loved meeting the big guy himself in the last week of term.
Our class curriculum - Below, or by clicking on the links, you will be able to see our curriculum plan which will highlight for you our learning intentions across the year. You will also see our SpringTerm Planner which will give you much more information on the range of exciting learning activities we have planned across all areas of the curriculum.
English: What is planned?
This term, we will be continuing to improve our writing. We will be looking at sentence types and how to write formally and informally. We will be learning how to write speech using the correct punctuation and we will be writing our own narratives.
We will be continuing with our topic of The Romans for this half term and we will be consolidating the things that we learnt last term.
Well done to all of our BRONZE STAR AWARD winners so far. They are:
Isla B Xander A Thomas W Riley M Amy T Abe W Freddie C Noah L Ben M Owen M Thomas B
We loved learning how to Mono print this week in Art.
Weekly Learning: Tuesday 4thJanuary 2022
This week we are starting to use our new story called 'Stone Age Boy' by Satoshi Kitamura.
We will be using this story to help us to eventually write a story that will include use of direct speech.
This week, we will be learning about measuring length in mm, cm, m, km and some older measurements like feet and inches. We will be converting our metric measurements, for example:
Changing 136cm into 1360mm by multiplying by 10.
We have started our new topic of light. Last week we identified a range of light sources, explained that dark is caused by the absence of light and that we needed light to see things. We had fun trying to spot the items in the boxes. This week we will be investigating shadows and how they are formed.
This week we will be learning about nouns around us.
PE will be on a Monday (basketball) and Wednesday (Crewe Alexandra FC - Hockey) afternoons during this part of the term. Please ensure that your child comes to school in their PE kit on these days. I would suggest they wear their winter PE kit of tracksuit bottoms and black sweatshirt with their PE t-shirt underneath as these sessions will be outside as much as possible. Can you please ensure that your child also has their coat with them.
This week will be all about family and friends.
We will learn about:
- To recognise that there are many different types of family;
- To understand what is meant by 'adoption' 'fostering' and 'same-sex relationships.'
In Art this week we will be learning all about William Morris, an artist who created art and wallpaper patterns using printing techniques.
This week we will be learning about the Britons and how they reacted to the invaders.
We will begin to discuss the miracles of Jesus. Last week, we discussed what we need to do to make ourselves better if we are ill. The children had some great ideas. We also wrote definitions of what we thought miracles were. RE this week will build on those ideas.
This week we will be looking at online safety. Last week we learnt about: what we should believe when looking at websites. What is spam and how we can ensure that what we read is true.
Spelling, Times Tables, Maths, Reading Homework:
Spellings will be set on a Friday and will be tested on a Friday
This weeks spellings are:
Times tables will be set on a Friday and tested on a Friday (your child will know whether they have moved onto a new times table)
Grammar Homework will be set weekly on this page.
Grammar Book - 14.01.22: Pages 32 and 33
Your children will keep their grammar books at home and they can mark them with you. The children will be encouraged to bring in their grammar homework books if they struggle with a task or they need help with any part of it. (The answers are in the back :) )
My Maths is set weekly on this page, click on the link below:
Your child will have their login details in their Reading Planner
Please read with your child daily as this will have an impact on all areas of their learning. They have a Reading Diary that you should date and together record their reading in. You may wish to write a comment but please do not feel that you have to, simply a record of what has been read is really helpful. Each child has received their new Reading Diary and their newly assessed reading level will be inside the front cover by the end of the first complete week in school and this is updated during the first 2 weeks of every half term. Thank you to all of those parents/carers who are writing in them so regularly, it is very much appreciated.
If you wish to pass on a message to myself, please feel free to write it in their Reading Diary but then please ask your child to bring it to me as we do not always check the planners on a daily basis.
As always can we please remind parents that if you wish to provide a break time snack for your child it should be something healthy such as fruit. There is always fruit available if your child forgets their snack. The children can bring in their own water bottle daily which must only have water (not juice) in.
