Emerald class have made a great start to the year, demonstrating an excellent attitude to learning across the curriculum. Our teacher is Miss Albiston and we have the support of Mrs Lawrence as our teaching assistant.
We have PE on Tuesdays and Fridays, yet we need our PE kit with us all week. We take our Home Learning home on Fridays and return it the following Wednesday.
In class, we have started the year reading Pig Heart Boy. We have been focusing on improving our writing with lots of important grammatical devices, such as embedded clauses and fronted adverbials.
Our topic this half term is ‘’Early Civilisations”. We will be looking at the Aztecs, Incas and Maya Civilisations. Last half term we focused on “Evolution and Inheritance”, learning lots of fascinating facts about adaptation and genetics. We enjoyed reading all about Charles Darwin and his escapades on the Galapagos Islands!
We can’t wait to make everyone proud with our commitment to our learning this year!
