Opal class work together to support each other and always try to do our best. We know that we will achieve whatever we try if we put our minds to it and work as a team. Our teacher is Mrs Martin and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Thomson, Mrs Jarvis and Mrs Lee.
We have PE on Tuesdays and Fridays, where we are learning to samba in dance, tag rugby, netball and gym. Please make sure any earrings are taken out for these days and a full PE kit is in school, especially warm clothing for outdoor PE during this term.
We take our Home Learning home on Fridays and return it the following Wednesday. Please keep a copy of your spellings to practice for the spelling challenge we all have on Friday mornings. At the end of each half term we will have a Mega Spelling Challenge where the children will be tested on twenty of the spellings from over the half term.
In class, we have begun to read a class book which we have used as the focus for our English lessons. We have written our own fantasy stories, persuasive letters, and learnt how to write using speech. We will also be writing poetry based on another book in the next half term as well a range of different genres.
Our Topic this term is ‘Sparkle and Shine’. We will be learning about light and sound in Science. We will be making predictions, carrying out investigations and concluding our findings.
