Welcome to Lime Tree Class
Class Teacher: Miss Olivia Woodhouse
Class Teaching Assistants: Mrs Sophie Bellis, Miss Ellie Hammond, Miss Emma Coleman and Mrs Lauren Rickett
In Lime Tree Class this year we will be exploring the effect of climate change has on the arctic tundra and how we can look after our planet for children of the future. In Term 2, we will be going to the Cotswold Wildlife Park and this will help us answer our big question 'what impact does changes to the environment have on animals?. In the Spring Term we will answering the question, 'do rivers help us explore', learning about the Avon, Ray and Thames. We will take part in our own fieldwork by going on a local river walk. We will also learn about Eygpt and who were the significant people in Egyptian times. When the weather finally warms up in our final terms we will be learning about how we hear and how sounds are made. We will be finishing the year with a topic on the Stone Age to the Iron Age about the Victorians and how was society and community formed.
Our class curriculum overview can be found here.
Each term we will send you our knowledge organisers and parent letter so you can keep up with the learning in the classroom.
It is our expectation that home learning is completed daily.
- Reading – please ensure you are reading each evening and logging this in the reading diary.
- Spellings – new spellings will be given out on a Monday and tested the Friday of that same week. You should practice your spellings on Spelling Shed.
- Multiplication tables - practice your times tables on Times Tables Rockstars. Your teacher will login to check your progress.
Families please help us by ensuring that all children bring in their reading books everyday as they will be read with in school time by an adult. Please make sure spelling books are returned on a Friday to give out the new ones for the following week. Your continued support with your child's learning at home is appreciated and will have such a positive impact on your child's continued progress in their learning journey.
