Hello and welcome to Otters! Our teacher is Mrs Murphy and our teaching assistant is Miss Rose
Our classroom is a bright, well-resourced placeas we are upstairs in the UKS2 rooms in the new Buttercup teaching block.
We enjoy English and mathematics every day and all of our remaining curriculum is taught as separate subjects although the art and design will often link to the history and geography. This year our topics are: Vikings and Anglo-Saxons, Marvellous Maps, Tudors,
Magnificent Mountains, and Victorians. From 15th May we will be taught in a 5/6 class for the remainder of the summer term to get us ready for our Year 6 challenges.
Some of our subjects are taught by specialist staff including: - French, Art, and Design Technology
We have two weekly PE lessons on Mondays and Wednesdays, so please make sure the
children come to school dressed in their PE kit on these days.
Our homework consists of weekly spellings, Maths and TTRockstars to make sure our learning is consolidated. There is also a reading challenge and topic tasks which can be completed over a half term. Children are also encouraged to read with an adult at least four times a week at home and books will be checked by an adult to make sure they are challenging and varied. The range available in school is excellent; our library is now ready for us to go and use and find even more pleasure in books.
Below you will find some planning documents so that you can see what we will be taught and our
‘Spelling Booklet’ for the current term so that you can support us at home.
