Welcome to Garnet!
Mrs. Randall and Mrs. Woodall are the adults in Garnet Class and look forward to helping the children with their learning.
This term we have a special focus on Music, which is called 'take one note'. We will be enjoying the masterpieces by Gustav Holst, focusing on 'Mars'.
We will still be exploring Earth and Beyond, through all areas of the curriculum, linked to our chosen piece of music.
In Writing, we will be adapting a well-known traditional tale to make it have a space setting.
In Guided Reading, we will be exploring texts and answering comprehension questions about them.
In Maths, we will continue to practice and consolidate number bonds and times tables, as well as learning about time and measurement.
Computing is all about safety and security.
Science will be focused on sound and space.
In Geography and History we will be looking at maps and the locality of our school, linking it to the history of our school.
Art and DT will focus on collage, sculpture and ceramics.
In PE, we will be doing hocky, tag rugby, gymnastics and swimming.
In R.E we will be focusing on Judaism and Christianity (Easter story).
Learn4Life is all about looking forward and friends and family.
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. Swimming will take place on Mondays.
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 Spring 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.
