Welcome to the Gecko Class Page!

Geckos are really good at climbing and in Gecko class we are aiming high! 

 

 

 

Garden Gang

This half term, we will be studying growing plants with a focus on growing vegetables in our school allotment. We will talk about edible and non-edible parts of plants, classify fruits and vegetables, learn about germination and hopefully grow our own vegetables ready to harvest at the end of term. We hope you have already started thinking about growing plants by taking part in our 'Cress Head' Easter homework.

We will then be focusing on the different angles within shapes and adding and subtracting fractions.

 

At home, please continue to practice your child's target times tables to support us with our fraction work and with moving towards more efficient methods in multiplication and division.

In our weekly ‘Exciting Writing’ sessions, we are continuing to identify the features needed for different genres and are choosing our own targets for writing.

 

Guided Reading

Our Guided Reading sessions this half term will begin with a study of non-fiction texts linked to our topic. We will think about the layout and content features to help us within our own writing.
