Welcome to the Gecko Class Page!
Geckos are really good at climbing and in Gecko class we are aiming high!
Our Topic this half term is 'Magical Marvellous Me!'
We will be learning about each other, studying our own bodies in Science, drawing self portraits in Art and reflecting on our learning mindsets as we settle into our new school!
Our first Maths unit this term is 'Geometry'
We will be learning the properties of different 2D shapes. This will involve thinking about angles, symmetry, parallel lines, perpendicular lines, drawing shapes accurately and classification of shape.
Our English work this term will be writing 'Small World' stories about our new school linking to 'The Borrowers'. As we write our stories, we will be making good vocabulary choices, using our imaginations and including different conjunctions and prepositions.
Our book study this term is 'The Invisible Boy'

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.
Our PE sessions are on a Monday and a Thursday. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on these days. You may also want to include trousers and a long sleeved top for your child's outdoor session as we move into the colder months.
Please remember to send a water bottle into school for your child to use during lesson times as it is important to help us learn.
