A Message from the Class Teacher, Mr Wood


2018-19 Term 1

Hello and welcome back to a new school year! We hope that everyone had a lovely summer break and that you are all now looking forward to the challenges ahead.

Here is an overview of what we will be learning about this term:


This half term we will be reading the book "Oliver and the Seawigs". We will be responding to that by writing diary entries, letters, poems and our own stories based on the book characters.


This half term we will be focusing on place value, addition and subtraction.


Our topic for this half term is The Shang Dynasty, an ancient Chinese civilisation.


In RE we will be exploring the question "What do Christians learn from the Creation story?"

In addition, we will have music on a Thursday with Ms Wilmott and PE on a Monday with Andy Booker. We will also be visiting Faversham gym on a Wednesday afternoon.

Homework will be set on a Friday (alternating between English and Maths) to be returned the following Wednesday. Spellings will also be set weekly and tested on a Friday.

I am sure we are going to have a jam packed year with lots of fun, laughter and learning!

If you have any questions about anything then please do not hesitate to come and find us on the playground.

Kind regards,

Mrs Ormerod (Class Teacher) and Mrs Harding (Class Teaching Assistant)
