Welcome to Peach Tree Class
Class Teacher: Mrs Tracey Crayford
Class Teaching Assistants: Mrs Serena Thompson and Mrs Mia Benstead
In Peach Tree Class this year we will learn about our local area, why it is special and about our local hero Isambard Kingdom Brunel. In Term 2, we will fly across the world to Africa to learn about Kenya and compare it to the place that we live. In the Spring Term we will answer the question, 'what does it mean to be alive', learning about animals and visiting the local farm. Nurses are incredibly important and we are incredibly grateful for all that they do. We will learn about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. When the weather finally warms up in our final terms we will grow our own plants thinking about whether a seed is the same as a bulb, and finishing the year learning about the Victorians and what it was like to be a child in the Victorian times.
Our six big questions for this year are:
1. What is special about where I live?
2. How is Kenya different to Ridgeway Farm, Purton?
3. What does it mean to be alive?
4. Who were Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole?
5. Is a seed the same as a bulb?
6. What was it like to be a child in the Victorian times?
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.
Parents 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 and multiplication 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.
