Falcons

Welcome to the Falcons class page! 

 

This year in the Falcons!

 

Hello and welcome back to another academic year at Ketton School!

We have a great team this year with 22 Falcons! Mrs Roberts will be working with the class during the morning sessions as classroom assistant and the class will also have the opportunity to work with specialist PE and French teachers! Oh, and I'm the class teacher - Mr Starkey!

 

Term 1

NEWS FLASH! LOOK OUT FOR A LETTER ON THE FIRST DAY BACK REGARDING OUR FIRST SCHOOL TRIP! MORE DETAILS TO FOLLOW...

 

Topic

Our topic for the first half term is 'I'm an evacuee - get me out of here!' During our history themed sessions, we will learn about the key events of World War II as well as comparing the lives of evacuees to our own ones!

 

Maths

In maths, we will get stuck into numbers right away! Our place value and rounding skills will be put to the test before moving into the world of negative numbers too. Finally, we will start calculating with numbers before the end of term.

 

Literacy

Our first writing topic will be all about diaries! Once we have read and discussed their key features, we will have a go at writing one from the perspective of an evacuee during WW2 - exciting!

 

Anything else...

  • PE will be on Wednesdays and Fridays this term - please be prepared for indoor or outdoor.
  • Homework will be handed out on a Friday and will need to be completed by the following Friday for self-marking.
  • Ask your children about our new ClassDojo and how we can collect 'Ready to learn' Dojo points for fantastic prizes!

 

Please feel free to drop in and see me if you have any questions!

Thanks

Mr Starkey
