We are really lucky to have Mrs Hemming and Mrs Valentine with us enabling small focused work and support. I, Mrs Stiles, will be around on the playground in the mornings and at 3pm, please come and speak to me and ask about any queries you may have.
Our new topic is “No place like home!” focusing on our local area. On Fridays we will be using our new class laptops to research, visit particular areas of interest, and collect data about what makes where we live special and unique. This will tie in with writing traditional tales about historical characters and settings that we have researched. We will also create a local map and information leaflet.
Our class reading book is ‘The Carpet People’ by Terry Pratchett which reflects the local influence of Kidderminster’s carpet links. I am hoping that we will also spend time looking at the canal and other areas that interest the children.
Our ever popular Talk Time continues on Friday afternoons along with Newsround. It is wonderful to have so many children wanting to share their experiences with us.
