Class 20

Welcome to Class 20!

Welcome to Class 20! Miss Stephenson and Mrs Foxton are our class teachers this year, with Mrs Smelt, Miss Cunningham and Mrs Taylor-Ward working alongside us too!

We are a class of 22 hard-working children and a team of dedicated staff with the same goal – to excel and achieve whilst having fun and making the most magical primary school memories.

Take a look at some of the creative learning we have produced so far this year. 

We can be contacted via the main office, before or after school or by using the year group email:

P.E.

Our PE days are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday afternoons. Please make sure you have your PE kit in school with you everyday (indoor and outdoor kit). 

Homework

Homework is set weekly on a Friday and is due in the following Friday and spellings are sent home weekly. 

Spelling

Every Friday spellings are collected, tested and a new set will be sent home.  You will find these in our school planners. It is very important that spellings are practised and transferred into writing.

Reading

In Class 20, we are all working hard to achieve our Reading Reward. To do this, we need to read at home as much as possible to get lots of Reading tokens. To help your child earn their reading tokens, record this when you read with them at home. Please ensure that they read at least 3 times a week but remember…the more the better! Reading will be checked every Friday  but school planners should be in school every day.  

What we’ve been learning

Let’s Go Wild

To kick off the year, for our whole creative school topic, we have been busy producing some of amazing pieces of work around David Attenborough and rewilding which has been focusing on what we can do around the school grounds to increase our biodiversity.

Step Back in Crime

We will be focussing on the theme of Crime and Punishment from the Tudors to the 21st Century. This will start with an enquiry question based on Crime & Punishment and the following lessons will allow children to find further information in order to answer the enquiry question. 

Their Call of Duty … Their Finest Hour … Spring Term

This term we will be learning all about World War 2 and the impact that it has had on society today.  As part of our topic, the children will be learning about life during war time and imagining themselves as an evacuee, about rationing and why this was implemented and understanding the Blitz (to name just a few things!). We will also be looking at  some more mature topics such as the holocaust which will allow the children to work on their discussion and empathy skills. 
There will be lots of cross-curricular work taking place, particularly linked to English and Mathematics.

When the Sky Falls – Spring Term

An extraordinary story with historical and family truth at its heart, that tells us as much about the present as the past. Deeply felt, movingly written, a remarkable achievement’ Michael Morpurgo

1941. War is raging. And one angry boy has been sent to the city, where bombers rule the skies. There, Joseph will live with Mrs F, a gruff woman with no fondness for children. Her only loves are the rundown zoo she owns and its mighty silverback gorilla, Adonis. As the weeks pass, bonds deepen and secrets are revealed, but if the bombers set Adonis rampaging free, will either of them be able to end the life of the one thing they truly love?
