We would like to extend a warm welcome to all the new children and families of Falcon class.  We are very much looking forward to working with you all and watching your children flourish and thrive.

 

We understand the importance of working closely with parents and carers and keeping them informed of what is happening in school. Please see the attached timetable and topic web so you know what is happening  in school, this could be used as a starting point for conversations at home.

For previous terms' information, please see our Topic Webs page.

This terms topic is ‘Pole to Pole’.

 

 

In English using Pie Corbett’s Talk for Writing the children will develop their own stories base upon the popular traditional tale ‘The Three Little Pigs’. During the imitation stage the will learn the language features and  structure of the original story. They will then use this to begin to adapt the story introducing new polar animals and a polar setting during the imitation stage. Finally the children will write their own stories during the invention stage.

 

 In geography the children will develop an understanding of the differences between temperate and polar climates and global warming has a negative impact upon the polar regions. In science the children will learn what living things need to survive and use this and their geographical knowledge to understand how polar animals have adapted to survive within such extreme climates.

French Day

 

We were very lucky to have Madam Vaughan come into school to teach us a little bit about France. We learnt about; how to ask to for some fruit in French, some facts about France and how children greet each other in the morning. Did you know that children shake hands each morning when they say bonjour?
