Welcome to Venn Class!
Miss Natasha Irvine - Class Teacher
We have 24 children in our class.
The class is supported by:-
Mrs Louise Fice (Teaching Assistant)
Mrs Teresa Pinhey (Teaching Assistant)
Topic: What’s pulling me down?
This term’s topic is based around forces. Children will link all areas of their curriculum studies to this science based topic. We will be exploring how forces operate and this will then be linked to the idea of going on a journey. As part of this topic we will explore a narrative text called ‘Journey’ and will use Scratch software to create a game based on a character carrying out a journey.
The Beam House residential will soon be upon us. A letter will be sent home shortly inviting parents to a PGL information meeting along with a kit list for the residential. Any payments outstanding need to be paid ASAP. Times Tables
Children should be learning their times tables as all children are expected to know each multiplication table (up to 12 x 12) by heart by the time they reach secondary school. We kindly ask that all children practise their times tables regularly at home. Reading
We also ask that all children read regularly. We suggest a minimum of 15 minutes per night. Reading and discussing books each night will help your children to develop the higher order reading skills of comprehension and will help to move their reading forward. Children will then take quizzes using our RENN reading scheme in school and those that achieve 10/10 will receive dojo points as a reward!
Children will engage in PE sessions twice weekly. Some of these sessions will take place in our outdoor environment. Please ensure PE kits are in school every day; children will sometimes engage in additional sport related activities outside of their usual PE slots.
