Hello parents/carers/loved ones/super fans,
Firstly, welcome back! I hope you had a lovely summer despite the bizarre times we are finding ourselves in. Huge well dones and woo hoos are in order for how amazingly well Beech class have settled back into school. I was really impressed with their enthusiasm and hope they can keep it up. Over the summer, Beech class got a bit of an upgrade and we now have this amazing cupboard unit!
Beech class will be learning some poetry in English to help us with creating our own Harvest poems later this half term. We will have to do a lot of looking at different poem types and descriptive language first. In maths we will be securing our understanding of place value (knowing that the position of a digit in a number tells us its value) and solving problems around this. We will also begin to learn Roman Numerals so this is something that they could get a head start on at home.
Our topic for the term (until Christmas) will be "Celebrations" with a focus on celebrating local life. The best way to support your child at home is to read with them (school books were sent home last week) and to practise times tables with them. I will send out their times table rockstar account information. It really is a great way to learn tables. Please note that it's not just about being able to count in multiples like 2, 4, 6, 8 etc but to know that 4x2=8 (without having to quickly count on fingers!).
Any questions feel free to drop me an email. The most warmest of wishes!
Mr Andy Russell
