Welcome to Class 12's 2017/18 webpage
Friday 12th January
Back to school with a bang! A brilliant first week back class 12. You have been eager to learn and have really got 'stuck in' to our new book Cosmic. Most of you have become Mega Maths Masters in area and perimeter this week. In science you begun to think about how we can prove whether the Earth is flat or spherical - some great reasoning was taking place! In topic, we learnt about Neil Armstrong and started to think about the conspiracy theories behind the moon landing.
See you Monday!
Spring Term Topics
In the Spring term, we have two mini topics to look forward to!
'Space' (first half term)
'Vicious Vikings' (second half term)
In January, we'll begin our space topic, which will link perfectly to our science.
Our science topic next half term will be 'Earth and Space'.
Our text for the first half term is 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrell Boyce and it's one you'll all completely love! Frank Cottrell Boyce also wrote one of my favourite books, 'Millions', and he is a very funny author.
Teachers and parents can communicate about homework and reading via the diary. Children have a responsibility to let the teacher know when they have a message to respond to. Diaries should be in school daily.
Children are allocated a book band based on their reading attainment. Children are encouraged to choose their own reading book from the allocated level. Children are able to change their book once it is indicated in the home school diary that the book has been read at home. Children are sometimes encouraged to reread books to support their reading fluency and comprehension. Reading of additional materials from school or home is actively encouraged.
