Baobab CLASS

Welcome to Baobab Class.

Your teacher is Miss Shortt with the help of the teaching assistant Mrs Baldwin.

We are learning

In English this term, we are beginning with reading George Speaks by Dick King-Smith.  This is a humorous story that will support us to use dialogue in our writing. After this, Gregory Cool will be the text that inspires us to write persuasively. Finally, our History topic will inspire our writing as we write a set of instructions for mummification. We will be covering a range of writing styles, including fiction, non-fiction, formal and informal writing.  

In Science, our learning will all revolve around light and shadow. We will carry out experiments using various equipment and begin to think scientifically to explain our results. 

In Maths we will be following our 'Maths No Problem' curriculum. Particular focus will be on measure: mass, length and volume.  


Maths and spelling homework will be sent home every Monday. Please make sure your child practises for the tests on Fridays. 

Reading homework will be set once the new reading records arrive. Again, this will be weekly. More information TBC.   


PE is still Monday and Thursday. Thank you for ensuring your child has their PE kit every week. 

Forest School is this half term on Thursday afternoons. Please make sure your child has suitable clothing.
