Class Ten

Teacher: Mr Acs

Teacher on a Wednesday: Miss Gordon

Teaching Assistants: Miss Russell, Mrs Lord and Miss Orr.

 

Welcome to the Autumn Term

 

In English we will be reading The Promise by Nicola Davies. The book has themes regarding global warming, emotional literacy and the importance of nature.  We will be writing newspaper reports, character descriptions and predicting the next part of the story. 

 

In Mathematics we will be looking at place value, addition and subtraction as well as multiplication and division. 

 

In Science, we will be learning about 'Forces and Magnets'. We will focus on what forces impact us in daily life and carry out several experiments. 

 

In Computing we will be looking at IT around us and how it affects our daily life.

 

In Geography our topic is 'The Class That Biked The World'. This involved reading the story 'The Boy Who Biked The World' and following along with his journey and studying the different locations he visits. This starts with the UK before moving onto Europe and Africa. 

 

In P.E on Friday mornings we will be concentrating on team building. 

 

On Monday and Wednesday afternoons we will be focusing on social and emotional interventions with groups of children looking at support children with low self-esteem, social interaction and developing coping mechanisms. 

 

Homework:

Children will be sent home with spellings to learn each week, could you please find the time to practice with the children.

At The Grange we believe that it is crucial to work in partnership with parents and carers. There is an expectation that you will support us by ensuring that your child completes the tasks that we set as homework.

Obviously the level of your engagement will depend on your child’s age but we expect you to take an active part in all aspects of homework. and where necessary, indicate that you have monitored the completion of it (e.g. by signing the Home/ School Reading Record Book)

The routines of reading everyday, learning spellings and multiplication tables etc. can be great fun and very rewarding for all concerned. Best results are achieved when homework is not done at the last minute but has a fixed time in a child’s established home routine. Short, sharp period of activity are preferable to prolonged periods of study where concentration can be lost.

Effective learning and consolidation of learning cannot happen in an environment with lots of distractions (e.g. television etc.) Please give some thought to where your child works at home.

Please see below the extensive list of websites that your child can visit to consolidate and extend his/her learning.

 

 

 

I would like to thank parents/carers for your continued support at home. If you need any further guidance please contact me via the class email address: classten@thegrangeprimary.org
