Welcome to Red Class!
Happy New Year!
This term our topic is Rainforests. We will be finding out about what rainforests are and where you can find them and also looking into some of the issues that are facing the world's rainforests today. As part of our topic we will be comparing our local forest to the Amazon Rainforest.
Look at our topic web to find out more about what we will be investigating this term.
Red Class Homework.
Red Class have homework set every Monday and Thursday. On a Monday we set a maths task (usually from a workbook) and this has to be handed in the following Monday. On a Thursday we set an English task (usually from a workbook) and this has to be handed in on the following Thursday. We will try to mark the homework together in class.
Sometimes we may set projects and give the children a few weeks to complete these tasks.
As well as this we expect all children to try to read every day for at least 10 minutes. Even though the children often like to read independently we would like an adult to hear them read at least once a week at home.
Every week the children will also have spellings to practise which will be tested on a Friday. We would also like the children to practise multiplication facts regularly.
