Welcome to Iguana class!
Our teacher is Mr Cornet.
Topic - Gods and Mortals
Our topic informs a lot of what we teach as we try, where possible, to adopt a cross curricular approach. This term Iguana class will learn about the ancient Greek way of life and make comparisons between life then and now. The children will study a range of Greek myths including Pandoras Box and Icarus, while practising writing in different genres. We are currently writing a first person diary entry, based on the character of Icarus, and will move on to creating our own god and writing a character description later in the term.
PE for Iguanas will be on Thursday and Friday. Please ensure your child brings their PE kit.
Wednesday 4th October
Library books will be changed once a week on a Thursday. Banded books will be changed as and when the children have finished their existing book, usually in the morning. The idea is that children should always have a book to read. Please read with your child every day and make a note in their reading record.
We will be focusing on revising place value and ensuring the children have a secure knowledge of using hundreds, tens and ones columns to partition. Later in the term we will be exploring using the four operations and problem solving.
There is now a greater focus on computing in the curriculum and we will be learning to use and write blogs this term before moving onto basic programming through a piece of software called Scratch.
