Stingrays

Welcome to the Stingrays' Class Page
 
Every few weeks we will update anything new we have been doing in class for you to have a look at.
Our topic this term is Drip Drip Drip! so as much of our learning as possible is linked to this.
 
English 

We have started exploring many texts linked to a watery theme.

The class novel this term is The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S Lewis.  Using this as the focus to learning about how to write different types of letters.  We are spending time looking at the language and vocabulary choices in a traditional text.

 Our handwriting and sentence work focuses on spelling and phonic patterns. It would hugely benefit the children if they could rehearse the joins they do at home when they are completing the writing. We work incredibly hard as a class with our presentation and high expectations of work. We ask for you to practice the children's spelling patterns at home either by Spelling Shed or the sheet that all children are now given to bring home.  There is a weekly test on a Friday.

Maths

Our Maths focus is on multiplication and division and building on techniques started the previous years to help us with calculations. We would like them to continue to work on this at home through either our apps (TTRS or Ed Shed) or old fashioned recall of multiplication facts.

 

PE

In our PE sessions we have been working on Bridges in gymnastics and the use of apparatus.

Stingrays are also learning ball skills and how to play as a team.

 

Science
In Science we are looking at a diverse range of Scientists and Inventors. The children will be challenged to think of their own inventions they would make using some of the examples from the people we study.
 
PSHE
In PSHE we are finding out about Rights and Responsibilities. This helps the children to know how to live in the wider world. Across the term we also have Anti-bullying Week.
 
 
Topic 
Our topic this term is called "Drip, Drip, Drip!" and is all about the journey of water.  There will be a lot of discussion about rivers, lakes and seas as well as talking about how the water cycle works.

 Music

This term the Stingrays are learning how to play a Glockenspiel and read siomple musical notes.
 
French
In French we are exploring landmarks in France and we will find out how Christmas is celebrated. There will even be a song or two to learn!
Harvest
 
Stingrays have performed a poem called peace for Harvest time.
