Welcome to Rosen class.  Summer Term has started and we are looking forward to another busy and fun term in Rosen class.  Please have a look at what we will be doing.


This term out Topic is traditional stories. We will be learning the story of the Magic Porridge Pot and then writing our own stories using this structure.  We will also be writing a newspaper report.  By now children should be able to recognise all their Phase 5 sounds and we will be investigating different ways of spelling the same sound.



We will be adding and subtracting numbers up to 20, learning to draw our own number lines to solve problems and explaining how we worked them out. We will be learning how to draw an array to show and work out the total amount of a group of objects as well as sharing objects fairly into groups of 2, 3, and 4.  We will be revising the names of 3D shapes, naming and recognising coins and solving problems involving money.  We will also be making sure we know our left and right and learning what a ¼, ½, ¾ and a whole turn is.  Children will continue to complete CLIC and Learn It challenges every week.



This term our topic is Plants. We will be planting bean seeds and watching them grow.  We will be learning the names of common flowers, trees and wild plants as well as identifying and naming their different parts.



We will be finding about Canada, where it is located and interesting facts about the country. We will be learning about the Native American Indians through dance, music and traditional stories and poems.  We are very lucky to have Mr. Campbell this term, who will be teaching us Native American chants and using percussion instruments to keep rhythm.

Please do not hesitate to come and see me if you have any questions or alternatively use class Dojo to message me.

PE lessons will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Children should bring their PE kits to school on Monday and take them back home on Friday.  They need to have a white t-shirt, shorts and trainers.  Please make sure all your child’s clothes are named.

Reading Books
Children will have a Reading book to take home by the end of the week.  This should be brought to and from school in their book bag.  They will also have a yellow home/school book which will give you feedback on how your child has read at school.  This is also for you to use if you wish when your child reads to you at home.  This can also be used write notes to me if you have any concerns or questions. Any letters sent home will also be in these books bags so please check these bags daily.

Ask Me To Books
In a few weeks your child will bring home these books.  They will go home on Monday and need to be returned on Friday every week.  These will have 3 or 4 short activities that you can do with your child if you wish and reflect what they are doing in class.

Forest Schools
This will be on Friday afternoons.  Half the class will go to Forest Schools while the others stay in class and will do Art.  The following week the groups will swap over activities.  Any parent volunteers would be most welcome to help out on Friday afternoons for Art or Forest Schools.  Please let me know if you would like to help.
