Welcome to our class page!
In our class our teacher is Miss Wright with Mrs Anderson as our teaching assistant. We also have Miss Blyth helping us for the first few weeks!
We start our day at 8:50am and finish at 3:15pm, drop off and pick up is from the KS2 playground.
Our dinner lady is called Miss Qualters.
Our PE days are every Tuesday and Thursday, they are in the morning so you can send them in in their PE kit ready with their uniform to change into afterwards. We have Forest School on a Thursday also but I will send home information about this.
The children will have a morning and afternoon break, you will have to bring your own snacks as school can't provide them. Make sure they are healthy snacks such as rice cakes, fruit or vegetables. Make sure to send your child in with a water bottle so they can have a drink throughout the day. A friendly reminder that only water is allowed in your child's in class drink.
We communicate on Class Dojo, if you need to contact me don't hesitate to message me on there. If you need your code for your child let us know and we'll send home a new code for you to connect. Also follow us on twitter @MissWright_LCPS
I will be sending reading books home, it is safe. Make sure you check your child's bag for books, make a comment and sign in their reading record and we will change the book in school the next day. Don't forget about our reading challenge! We would love to see you reach your bronze, silver and gold awards.
Homework will be sent out on a Friday and brought back in by Wednesday. Each week your child will get their spellings, a times table or number bonds sheet, our knowledge organiser for one of our topics and a reading book. If you feel like your child needs extra support in an area send myself a dojo message and I can send home some more supportive work. At the front of their homework books will be a log in code for Numbots, Timestable Rockstars and Purple Mash - these are all educational and will support them with their learning.

What we are learning in our Great Britain topic:
This topic we are learning all about Great Britain! We are going to be looking at the different countries and capital cities of Great Britain and then focussing in on the county that we live in and which counties are around us. We will be comparing what a village (Edale) looks like to a map of Dukinfield! As Historians, we will be looking at the changes to housing and society from the Stone Age to the Iron Age - how we moved from the Nomadic hunter-gatherer lifestyle to creating tribes and becoming farmers. We will be learning how to code and how to stay safe on the internet, learning all about the different ratings on games and why they're there to protect us. As biologists, we will be learning all about the different parts of a flower/plant and what their different jobs are - from investigating leaves to looking how water is transported around.
