Hello and Welcome to the Squirrel Class!
The Squirrels are taught by Miss Lineker and their Teaching Assistants are Mrs Pepperdine and Miss Sampson.
Our topic in Term 3 shall be all about the Amazon Rainforest. Our overarching question for this term shall be "How has human activity impacted upon the physical and human characteristics of the Amazon rainforest?" During this topic, we shall become geographers and learn about the human and physical characteristics of the rainforest as a biome, we shall travel in our lessons to South America and learn about the countries that the Amazon is a part of, we will delve deep in to the rainforest to learn about its layers and what lurks beneath the canopy of trees...
As Scientisits, we will be learning about the life cycles of animals and plants found within the rainforest. We shall study how all living things have seven life processes and learn more about the fascinating species of animals that survive in this tropical biome.
Keep popping back to see where our learning journey takes us...
Please ensure that P.E kits are in school every day, especially on Wednesday for gymnastics and Friday for Netball. 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, with warmer clothes to wear in the winter months!
Homework this term is project based with spellings and times tables being set every week. I cannot wait to see what the Squirrels produce for their projects! I have already been hearing lots about their brilliant ideas! 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!
