Welcome to Iguana class!
Our teacher is Mrs Diplock.
Over the term, we will be reading a range of Greek Myths to inspire our writing. So far in English, the children have been introduced to the Greek Myth, ‘King Midas and the Golden Touch’ and are now writing a modern version. The children will be exploring the themes and characters in the Myth of ‘Pandora’s Box’ where the children will be writing a diary from the day Pandora opened the box. Also they will be learning about play scripts, turning a Greek Myth or fable into a play to be performed.
is all about our senses
This term we will be studying the five human senses and what it is to be human! Children will be exploring how humans have evolved through time, how we age and what makes us human – from our ability to communicate, development of mathematics to tool building and how we act socially. They will then investigate how we smell, hear, taste, see and feel things using different investigations throughout the term.
Here are some key topics we’ll be studying:
1. Humans through time
2. What makes us human
3. How we use the 5 human senses
Spelling and Timetables
Children have a weekly spelling and timetable test. New spelling lists and a maths based activity will be sent home on the Friday to be tested the following Friday.
Spellings will usually focus on specific spelling rules. Please discuss the rule with your child and encourage them to find out the meaning of the word if they are unsure.
Supporting your child at home...
Reading – Children should be reading at home at least 5 times a week. Please listen to your child read regularly and discuss their reading with them. Please sign your child’s reading record and ensure that they bring their book to school every day.
Reading Bingo is going well, many children have won a bookmark and one has managed to complete the whole sheet - BINGO!
Iguanas have PE on a Thursday where we will be learning how to play Hockey.
