Welcome to our class page!
In our class our teacher is Miss Wright with Miss Qualters as our teaching assistant.
We start our day at 8:50am and finish at 3:15pm, drop off and pick up is from the KS2 playground.
Our PE days are every Monday and every Wednesday- don't panic about Forest School I will send out extra information about that!
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. Do not send in unhealthy snacks. Make sure to send your child in with a water bottle so they can have a drink throughout the day.
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 Thursday of the following week. Each week your child will get their spellings for the next week and some Maths that we have been focussing on that week.

What we have learnt in our GB topic:
We have learnt all about the countries that make up the United Kingdom, we recapped their capital cities! We learnt that our county is called Cheshire but we are also part of Greater Manchester. We were able to remember that the Lake District is in the county of Cumbria. We learnt more about our prehistoric past! That we were hunter gatherers who then became farmers and started to settle making villages. We learnt about some key inventions such as the wheel and the cart which helped us trade with other settlements. We looked and read many different stories in English learning all about life in prehistoric Britain through Stone Age Boy, we pretended how we would feel and how we would act if we ended up in the Stone Age - we wrote letters to our loved ones and kept a diary of our time there. We began to learn some of the names of the bones in our body and how to keep ourselves healthy through a balanced diet.
What we are learning in The World topic:
We are learning all about Ancient Egypt! We are looking at the Equator and what it is and the hemispheres, identifying the hemisphere we are in. We are recapping the continents and the main seas/oceans around the world. We are then focussing on what makes a desert climate, identifying the Sahara desert and why the Nile is essential to the life of people in Egypt. We are looking at Howard Carter in English and his discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb, writing a diary, a biography and a newspaper report about him. We are learning about the different parts of a flower and its lifecycle, focussing on how the roots transport water and how seeds are dispersed.
