Hi Mars Class!

 

I hope you all had a lovely restful half term week and are ready for a new term to start.  This week's work (and the following week) is all about Superheroes, so I know you will enjoy that!

I'm still working on speaking to everyone on the phone, so if you haven't heard from me recently, then I will be in touch again this week.

 

Enjoy the week and stay safe

Love

Hello Everyone,

I am so enjoying your photos and videos that you have sent in. It looks like you are all having great fun and being so creative. (I hope the rain has stopped in your house now, Thomas!)

Happy Birthday to those of you who have celebrated at home so far, lots of great cake pictures.

I hope you enjoy the work this week.

Keep it up, 

Love from

Welcome to Mars Class!

 

Welcome,

 

The adults that work in this class are Mrs Deane (Monday -Thursday), Mrs Carswell (Friday) and our HLTA is Mrs Hamblin.

 

 

Our PE days this term will be a Thursday and Friday.

Please ensure you have full PE kits in school, both for outdoor and indoor PE.  Long hair needs to be tied back and earring studs must be covered with tape, or removed on PE days.  The latter is preferable to avoid hair tangles in the classroom.

 

On a Friday, children will be given spellings to learn in an orange Spellings Book which they are expected to practice at home in the front of the book, writing each word in a sentence to show they understand the context in which to use it.  These will be tested each Thursday in the back of the book so that the results can be shared at home.

 

There is a document on this page that will provide support with a range of strategies that could be used at home to help with spellings.

 

Maths homework is given out on a Friday and must be returned to school the following Wednesday.  Please ask us if you have any questions or concerns regarding this – we are happy to help.

 

Mrs Deane , Mrs Akers and Mrs Hamblin
