Welcome to our Class!

Mrs Gibbs and Mrs Hawkins
Mickey and Minnie’s Magical Kingdom
This half term, we will be taking part in a Geographical study of Florida. We will be looking at its location, climate, tourism and land use and then comparing it to our findings from our Romsey study.
We are looking forward to our hook day where we will be creating biscuits, hurricanes and Disney castles as well as meeting some of the wildlife native to Florida.
In Maths we will begin the half term focussing on more efficient methods to add and subtract larger numbers.
At home, please practice counting in tens and hundreds. Also it would be beneficial to practice adding and subtracting smaller numbers mentally.
Our book study this half term is ‘Flat Stanley’ by Jeff Brown.
We will be taking part in lots of activities based on the story and linking it to different aspects of our own lives.
This half term our writing will be based on our Guided Reading book. We will be looking at a variety of genres based on the discussions we have in class.
In our weekly ‘Exciting Writing’ sessions, we are beginning to identify the features needed for different genres and are choosing our own targets for writing.
We hope you enjoy seeing what the Chameleons have been up to! We are proud of our learning and each other - we all help to make our class a very happy and friendly place to be!
There are two lots of homework every week - Maths and English.
Maths is set on a Monday, due in on Thursday.
English is set on a Thursday, due in on Monday.
Spellings are set on a Monday for a test the following Monday
We really appreciate the support you can give your child to help them with their homework, spellings and to hear them read regularly.
We have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday, but please ensure your child always has their kit in school as they may need it for other ad-hoc activities, such as some carousel groups.
