Welcome to Class 11
Welcome to our new Class webpage!
After a challenging six months, we are so excited to be back at school!
We have all settled in well so far, so please find below some curriculum and class organisation information:
Hello everyone I’m Mr Waterworth and I teach in class 11. During this half term we will be learning all about what lies beneath our feet. The children will learn how earthquakes and volcanoes are formed and how they affect us. During science, the children will learn about different types of rocks and soils, as well as investigating different fossils.
In art, the children will learn about the artist Hokusi and create their own paintings inspired by his work. During computing, we will learn how to write code using Scratch and create their own programmes. In our PE lessons, the children will be outside for this half term completing their athletics unit. They will develop their running and throwing skills and techniques. In French sessions with Madame Brock, the children will learn how to describe themselves: saying their name, age, greeting friends and expressing opinions.
The Christian Family
Throughout the topic, the children will be learning about what it means to belong to a family. As well as this, the children will be learning about what it means to be a part of the Christian Family. This topic looks in detail into the knowledge and understanding the sacrament of Baptism.

They will solve problems surrounding number facts, place value, missing number problems and more complex addition and subtraction.

The children will use the website to help them to develop their fluency when learning times tables. This term they will be introduced to the 3 and 4 times tables as well as consolidating their learning around the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
Spellings and Homework
Weekly spellings are given out on Mondays, and the spellings will need to be learnt at home, ready for a test on Friday.
Weekly English homework will be given out in new textbooks every Friday. It will be due in school on the following Wednesday.
Each time the children read in school you will be updated via the class dojo. You are also able to send a message to let us know how your child is reading at home.
PE kits will be brought into school on Mondays and returned home for cleaning at half term.. Please include both indoor and outdoor PE kit. Trainers are requested as opposed to black pumps if possible. Jogging bottoms are also recommended when the weather becomes colder. Our PE day is on a Thursday, however, we will also do the golden mile weather-permitting on a different day.
