Welcome to Mr Fuller's class page where you can find out more about what is happening in school and any current information.

 

Welcome back! I hope you all had a super Christmas break and everyone is feeling ready for a fresh start to a new year and term.

Mr Fuller :)

This Term's Topic

Our topic this Spring term is a history theme called Ruthless Romans where we will learn about the Roman Invasion of Great Britain. During this unit, we will develop our history skills by:

  • Finding out why the Romans invaded Britain
  • Looking at what made the Roman so formidable
  • Comparing Roman and Celtic ways of life
  • Exploring the life of Boudicca – Queen of the Iceni tribe.

 

Literacy

In literacy we begin by looking at poetry that creates imagery where we explore the features of figurative language within poetry and create a poem based on the poem 'Magic Boc' by Kit Wright.

Then we explore a book called ‘Escape from Pompeii’ that links to our history topic. We will examine the descriptive language used by the author to bring the characters and setting to life as well as covering specific aspects of grammar and punctuation.

 

Science

Our science topic will be Teeth, Eating and the Digestive system where we will investigate:

  • Types of teeth and their functions
  • The importance of caring for our teeth
  • The functions of parts of the human digestive system
  • Recognising, constructing and interpreting food chains

 

Homework

We will be returning to setting reguar weekly homework tasks. These will be set on a Thursday and will be due in on a Monday. In addition, a half term's spelling list will be set home at the start of the half term. 

Reading

With reading being such an important part of every child's learning, we are really encouraging all pupils to read as much as possible out of school as well as during the school day. 

All children will be able to choose a book from our class library to be kept in school so they can read at opportunities during the day-which will ideally be every day! 

 In the juniors, we will introduce a class book as part of guided reading sessions where the children will have the opportunity to widen their vocabulary and deepen their understanding, as well as having independent reading time.

PE

Children will need to have their PE kits in school and this will need to come in on a Monday and can go home on a Friday if necessary. Also it is essential that long hair is tied back and earrings needed to be covered for safety. Please remember that some of our sessions are held outside so the children will also need a long-sleeved top and jogging bottoms with their usual PE kit.

This half term we will have an indoor PE session on Monday afternoon, with a sports coach, focusing on Badminton. On Wednesday afternoon we will be outside looking at Basketball and Netball skills, also with a sports coach, to help progress the children's skills.
