Welcome to Iguana Class!
Our teacher is Mrs Diplock
OUR TOPIC THIS TERM IS ALL ABOUT THE RAINFOREST
Will Rainforests always exist?
As part of this topic the children will be learning about climate zones and extreme weather around the world. They will be zooming into the places and climates around the equator. This will involve finding out about the habitats and creatures that survive the extreme climates and comparing an Amazon Rainforest to a forest closer to home.
This term, as well as writing a dramatic story based on a flood, the children are using their knowledge of extreme climates to write a holiday Brochure for Antarctica.
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 five 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.
This PE will be on a Friday. This may be outside so please make sure your child has the appropriate kit.
The children will be going to either Forest School or Swimming on a Wednesday afternoon. As the weather gets colder, please make sure your child has warm layers for their Forest School Experience.
