Hello and Welcome to the Squirrel Class!
The Squirrels are taught by Miss Lineker and their Teaching Assistants are Mrs Pepperdine and Miss Sampson, however other adults in school will be working in the class throughout the year too.
Our first topic of the year will be 'Race to Space!' We shall be learning all about the workings of our amazing solar system in Science, we will discover who were the first people (and animals) to explore space and throughout the topic we shall be following the children's interests and curiosities about the mysteries of our universe. Keep checking back on our page to see the fantastic work that the Squirrels produce!
This term, the Squirrel Class are lucky to be going Swimming every Wednesday afternoon and the children will need their swimming kits in order to take part. Swimming is a vital skill to learn and part of the National Curriculum. I cannot wait to see how many children achieve their swimming badges this term!
Indoor P.E will usually be on Thursday afternoon. Please ensure that P.E kits are in school every Thursday. In case of a change to the timetable, it would be helpful for all children to have their P.E. kit in school all week, if possible.
Homework will be sent home every Monday and should be returned to school by Friday at the latest. In Year Five, we encourage children to develop their independence skills. If they should have a problem with their homework, please remind them to come and speak to me about it. I will happily support them wherever I can!
