Welcome to Garnet!

Mrs. Randall and Mrs. Woodall are the adults in Garnet class and look forward to helping the children with their learning. We hope you had a lovely half term!

 

We have lots of fantastic things to look forward to this term. Our topic is the Stone Age to the Iron Age and we will be starting to understand the key events through history, geography, dance, art and design and technology.

 

In writing, we will be using historical events by making links to our topic to write chronological reports. In guided reading, we will be exploring texts and answering comprehension questions about them. We will be enjoying reading Stig of the Dump as our class book. In maths, we will continue to practice and consolidate all the different methods for multiplication and division,  as well as embedding our knowledge on times tables. Computing is all about digital literacy and communication. In PE we will be doing invasion games and netball, which is skills and games based. And Learn4Life is all about different families, same love.

 

P.E Times:

Monday and Thursday.

Please ensure that your child has a change of t-shirt, shorts and suitable P.E. shoes on these days. As one of our PE sessions will take place outside, jogging bottoms can be worn on chilly days, providing they are black.

 

Homework:

Children are expected to read daily and practice times tables and given spellings. Optional topic homework will be given once a term, including 'chatter topics', which are ideas for conversations around the children's learning [see 'Homework Autumn 2' sheet below].

 

Drop off/pick up:

All children are to be accompanied by an adult to the KS2 gate in the mornings and to be collected from the hall doors in the afternoons. Please wait with your child/children until the gates are opened at 8:45am.

Garnet class visited the Cyber Cafe website to help them learn about different aspects of online safety. They had to complete tasks about making profiles, using chat rooms and receiving messages from unknown senders. We also talked about being SMART online (Safe, Meeting, Accepting, Reliable, Tell).
