Welcome to Class 12's 2017/18 webpage
Friday 20th April
We have had a super first week back in class 12. It has been lovely to see so many happy, smiling faces. It has been lovely to be able to get outside and make the most of this weather!
We are gripped with our new class text 'Goodnight Mister Tom'! This week, we have written a diary entry as Willie Beech on his first full day with Tom. In topic, we begun to discuss WWII and the events that led up to it. Understandably, the children had lots of questions and stories to share of their own family members who had been involved. Some INCREDIBLE learning has been happening this week in our maths lessons. We have flown through the decimal objectives and you are all Mega Maths Masters!
Have a fantastic weekend,
Summer Term Topic
In the Summer term, our topic is World War II - our text is Goodnight, Mister Tom. One of my favourite ever books - I know you're going to love it!
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.
