Autumn Term 2020
Happy New School Year!
First of all, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Miss Capstick and I am the class teacher for Beech Class. Alongside me supporting the children with their learning is Miss Coultas, my fantastic Teaching Assistant. Sadly, due to current restrictions, I am unable to formally meet you all in our usual Meet the Teacher evening, but this letter will provide you with important details you need to know about Beech Class.
During the Autumn term we will be linking our learning to Ancient Greece.
Topics we will be learning about include:
- English- Myths and Legends.
- Science- Sound.
- RE-What can Christians learn from the creation story?
- History – Ancient Greece.
- Computing – I am a toy designer (coding)
- Art and DT – Structure (clay modelling)
- PE- Netball
Reading – Children are expected to change their reading books at least once a week. Before a new book can be taken, we would like to ask you to ensure that your child’s reading record is signed to show that the previous book has been completed. Please encourage your child to read as much as possible at home.
Homework- More information about Homework will be given at a later date, as there are going to be some changes. In the meantime, please focus on spellings (sent home with this letter), reading and times tables. We greatly appreciate your support with helping your children with these important skills.
PE- Throughout the Autumn Term, our PE slot is on a Thursday Afternoon- please make sure your child comes to school every Thursday dressed in their PE kit (a T-shirt in their house colour, black shorts underneath a pair of dark coloured jogging bottoms or leggings, trainers and their school jumper).
Forest School- When we go to Forest School, you will receive a text the night before. On the day of Forest School, please send your child in their school uniform with a bag containing waterproof trousers, wellies and a waterproof coat. We will go to Forest School in a variety of weather conditions, therefore the clothes your child wears may get a bit dirty!
I hope we get off to a flying start in Beech Class and I am very excited for the year ahead. Please, if you have any concerns or would like to talk to me about anything, do not hesitate to contact me by telephoning the school office. I am always happy to help.
Miss Capstick and Miss Coultas
