Welcome to Meerkat Class. This year we have a new classroom in the main school building, so the children who were in Meerkat class have done really well at transitioning to the new room. The class teacher in Meerkat class is Emma and the other adult in the classroom are Danielle, Anna and Candice. There are seven children in Meerkat Class.
This Term ( Term 2) , some children are going swimming every week, going to Sainsbury's and also going to Brockhill Forest Park. We think it is very important to do lots of exciting learning in the local community.
This Term our topic is Festivals and celebrations. We are learning about Diwali, fireworks, Christmas and all about things people do at parties. We plan to make lots of exciting decorations and yummy food in our cooking lessons. We will make sure to send some samples home to try!
The teacher in Meerkat class is Emma. There are six teaching assistants that support the learning in Meerkat class. The teaching assistants names are Jess, Jo, Jane, Danielle, Jacob, Candice and Anna.
Meerkat class is a mixed Key Stage One class following the stepping stones curriculum. For more information about the approach please feel free to take a look at the document below.
This terms topic is Polar Animals and Polar Regions.
In literacy the book we are focusing on is 'Polar bear, polar bear what can you hear?'. We are learning about animal noises and rhyming words.
In maths we are continuing to develop our understanding of number and have a focus on measure.
Photos of our new topic to come soon!
We are learning about insects in Term Five. We have started the term learning the story of the 'Very Hungry Caterpillar.' We have enjoyed hunting for insects in the garden, planning bug houses and baking 'butterfly cupcakes'.
We are excited to build bug houses and see which insects choose to visit them.
We are also hoping to take a trip to a large forest park where we can explore and search for lots of different insects.
We will also continue searching in the school garden and in the forest school area at school.
In maths we are learning about subtraction and addition. We are using a range of fun resources to help us with our calculations.
During our creative time we are using a range of colours to print. We are using fruit and vegetables to print on paper.
We are also going to attend weekly sport sessions with the PACE team and work on getting even more fit and healthy!
We hope to upload lots of pictures of our finished bug houses soon.
