Welcome to Saint David’s Class Page!

Teacher – Miss Child

Here in Saint David’s class we start every day with Guided Reading. Thank you so much to the parents who come into hear us read (we love showing off how good we are). We could always do with some more help – so please don’t hesitate to let us know if you are able to help for 20 – 30 minutes any morning.

Key Reminders:

  • Saint David’s homework will be set on a Friday, this will include: Spellings (green book) – These will need to be practised at home ready for a test every Thursday. Grammar and maths homework will also be set every week. This all needs to be completed and handed back in on the following Wednesday.
  • PE will take place on a Tuesday afternoon, please ensure school kit is in school. This includes trainers, a house colour top and navy/black shorts.
  • Reading at home is really important for all children. Children will be reward privilege points if they read at home five times a week

This term, our topic is The Ancients! Throughout this topic, the children will be looking at Ancient Egyptians, Ancient Greeks and The Mayan civilization. Their achievements and impact on the western world will be our main focuses.
The topic is history based and the children will doing lots of practical DT work as well.
We will use this topic in our English lessons, looking at how the pyramids have been built, writing non-chronological reports and explanation texts around this. In addition, the children will be looking at and writing suspense stories, our key emphasis will be on creating atmosphere and using dialogue to show characterisation and move action forward.
In science, we will continue to look at the light, how it travels and moves and then moving on to thinking about electricity.
In maths, we have covered place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and now we are focusing on shape, angles and geometry, later this term we will progress onto measurements, especially area and perimeter..
During our French lessons this term, we will be looking at using existing vocabulary as well as new words linked to food and activities we complete in our spare time.
In PE, the children have just finished gymnastics and are now focusing on dance – they have enjoyed this lots more than some of them expected.
In art, the children have been looking at the style of Van Gough and then creating their own pictures inspired by this style based on the season of Lent.
In God matters, Lent and Easter will be our focus this term.
