Miss Brett, Mrs Longmore, and Miss Holman welcome you to the Disney class page!
Autumn Term 1
Wow, what a busy half term we have had in the Disney classroom! We have been having fun settling into junior school life and getting to know all of our teachers. We kicked off the year with a fantastic Gods and Mortals topic and learnt all about Ancient Greece. We looked at all of their beliefs and learnt about the many different Gods. We also studied their way of life and discovered that parts of our society today are influenced by these interesting warriors, philosophers and politicians! To finish our topic, we learnt about the Trojan War and used our D&T skills to design and make our own Trojan horses!
In English, we wrote our spectacular class myth ‘Theseus and the Dragolf’ and then used our ideas to independently write our own. We used adjectives to create great 2A sentences and used some powerful verbs for our conflict scenes!
In Maths, we have learnt all things place value! We have looked the values of any given digit, compared, ordered and represented different numbers up to 1000! We have also used these skills to problem solve and reason.
We are looking forward to the next 9 weeks, where we will be launching the 3 times tables, having our first class trip and starting a new, ‘roarsome’ topic!!
Children must complete the maths activity and one of the topic options by Friday 14th December, 2019. Please also ensure your child spends 30 minutes a week on Sumdog, and reads to an adult three times each week.
