St David’s Class

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 has been Planet Earth! To start this topic, the class went on a trip to Westonbirt Arboretum. Here they completed an orienteering activity to find different points with clues about trees. After this, the children spent some time completing an evolution, inheritance and adaptation workshop with the staff.
The topic was geography based and the children have been working with maps of the local area as well as those of other countries and the world. We used this topic in our English lessons, looking at journey stories across different environments, producing persuasive reports about keeping the earth clean and sustainable and now we are writing non-chronological reports about different habitats across the earth.
Since the Westonbirt trip, the children carried on looking at evolution, inheritance and adaptation in class and alongside some data handling. Light and the eye is now being covered. The children used their literacy skills to produce reports about the eye and explanation texts about how light travels.
In maths we have covered place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and now we are focusing on shape, angles and geometry.
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 music, we will look at song writing and creating music to go along side. We will also have a go at conducting our creations.
In God matters, Lent and Easter will be our focus this term.
