Class Twelve

Welcome to Class 12

Our class team:

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.

 

In Class 12 children will have daily reading and spellings. Spellings will be changed on a Monday. These will be checked each morning. If children are not completing homework on a regular basis they will read/complete homework with an adult at break time.

 

This term we are learning all about the Ancient Greeks. We will take a deeper look into  objects from the past and what they teach us about how the Greeks lived. We will compare how we live now in comparison to people from the past and will develop a better understanding of timelines.

 

In Maths we are going to learn more about measurement including time and measuring mass, capacity and temperature . You can help support your child at home by supporting them to tell the time.

 

In English we will be watching a short video clip, called Johnny Express. We will use speaking and listening activities to develop our understanding of the clip. This in turn will support us when creating an alternative ending in our writing. We will also focus on non-fiction writing and will produce a piece of instructional writing. 

 

In Science we are focusing on Animals including Humans. Children will learn about healthy eating and how we can maintain a healthy diet. How our diets differ to other animals. We will also look at oral hygiene and how we can take care of our teeth. 

 

In PSHE we will be focusing on Coping with Change. We will learn about what transitions we are facing and how to cope with them. 

 

Every Thursday, we will be attending swimming sessions at The Meadows. Please send your child into school with a swimming kit which consists of swimming trunks/swimming costume, a towel and a  swimming cap which can be purchased at The School office for £1.20. 

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of staff. In addition, the children’s diaries will be checked and written in daily to inform you of any updates.
