Welcome to Chinchillas Class page.
Mrs Evans and Miss Allen are the teachers and Mrs Williams works with us too.
On this page you will find notices, photographs and great pieces of work we feel should be celebrated with all who visit our class page!
- PE Kit
Chinchillas will need to ensure that their PE kits are in school everyday. Please ensure that items of clothing are clearly labelled.
Homework activities will be set on Mondays and Thursdays. As well as a written activity we also encourage children to read daily as well as to learn their multiplication tables and associated division facts. Spellings are set every Monday and children will have the week to learn words ready to be tested a week later.
Homework and spellings can be found here.
Children have access to the library and an accelerated reader book which needs to be into school every day to use in allocated reading time. Learning journals have also been issued so children can record the books they are reading as well as offering space for comments to be made when reading occurs at home. These too should be in school each day.
We encourage all children to read as much as possible and encourage them to achieve 100% in the quizzes completed based upon the books read.
Our Topic this half term will be...
Fire And Fangs
During this topic we will be looking at teeth and how to look after them. We will be learning about the jobs of the different types of teeth and once food has left your mouth, we'll be finding out where it goes and what happens to it. We will also be thinking about what we eat and how to eat healthily.
In English we will be writing explanation texts that link to our reading book 'How to Train your Dragon'
Later, we will be writing letters to persuade.
We will begin this term with geometry. We will be plotting coordinates, translating shapes and finding lines of symmetry.
Then we'll be looking at the four operations. Building on our work from last term, we will be developing our methods further and solve problems.
We will find equivalent fractions and also find fraction and decimal equivalents.
Our measure work will involve working with length and capacity (including converting between different units of measure).
In Science we will be looking at
Teeth and Healthy Eating
We will look at the different types of teeth and their jobs. We will also investigate at how to look after our teeth and what happens if we don't. Then we will find out what happens to food after it leaves the mouth, where it goes and what it is used for. Finally, we will look at why a healthy diet is important.
In guided reading we will be reading the book
How to Train your Dragon
By Cressida Cowell
