Ginkgo class

Welcome to Ginkgo Class.

Your teacher is Miss Tarbuck with the help of the teaching assistant Mrs Fullick.

We are learning

This term, we are learning all about ‘Life Changers’ in Topic and we are excited to research three extremely influential people. We will be looking at Joseph Bazalgette, Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole

In English, we are reading a variety of Roald Dahl Books. We are reading The Enormous Crocodile and The Twits. We will be looking at the language used, the structure of the text and use this to support our own writing. We will also be publishing our writing for our displays! 

In Maths we are solving word, money and shape problems as well as developing our learning of measuring length and mass. Of course, we always welcome times table and division practice at home throughout the year! 

In Science, we are investigating uses of everyday materials. We cannot wait to carry out experiments to understand how and why certain materials may or may not be suitable for particular use. 

Homework

Homework is given out on Fridays and is collected the following Thursday. Each term we will send home a week by week planner for the spellings (tested on Fridays) and for the topic or English work. The maths will be sent home each week to match up with our learning.

Reminders

This year we have PE on a Tuesday and a Friday. It would be fantastic if every child could bring in a full PE kit including a top in their house team’s colour and clean socks. These will be sent home each half term to be washed and returned back. 

The children’s books are changed every Monday. They need to put their reading book and reading record in the box by the door if they would like to have it changed. Unfortunately, if they forget to put their book in the box we may not always be able to change it as we have a very busy timetable.
