St Teresa’s Class
Welcome to Saint Teresa’s Class Page!
Teacher – Miss Crisp Teaching Assistant – Miss Lucas
Here in Saint Teresa’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.
- Saint Teresa’s homework will be set on a Friday, this will include: Spellings (green book) – These will need to be practiced at home ready for a test every Thursday. Grammar, math or topic based work. This all needs to be completed and handed back in on the following Wednesday.
- PE will take place on a Friday afternoon, please ensure school kit is in school. This includes trainers, a house colour top and navy/black shorts.
- Reading at home is a real passion for Miss Crisp. We would love all of the children within Saint Teresa’s class to read 5 times per week to an adult outside of school. (Everyone at home you are able to document this in the children’s yellow reading diaries). Both myself and Miss Lucas will keep a close eye on this (Monday – Monday) and any children fulfilling this task will be rewarded with 1 privilege point.
- Our daily mile is continuing to take place, so make sure your ready to take part, enjoy and increase your fitness!
In our previous term, all of the children in Saint Teresa’s class had gone on a fascinating journey back in time to find out what life was like during the Roman times! We had discovered lots about how Britain was first conquered, what life was like after the Roman Empire took over and lots of interesting facts about Hadrian’s Wall! One of the most exciting parts of this topic was visiting the Roman Baths – we were able to handle some roman artefacts and see with our own eyes some of the fantastic routines they adopted!
Across this topic we have immersed ourself into the world of water, learning all about the water cycle and expliring the processes of evaporation and condensation through a range of pratical activities. Within Saint Teresa’s class we have modelled a minature water cycle, created clouds and measured the rate of evaporation accross different locations in our classroom. We have been introduced to the idea of a finite resource, have considered ideas of conservation and discussed ideas surrounding supplying clean drinking water to a growing global population.
Buzz, learning all about sound and electricity
Across the next few weeks, all of the children in Saint Teresa’s class are going on a fascinating learning journey to find out all about sound and electricity.
We will investiage all about what electricty is and how it was discovered. We are going to identify appliances which use electricity around school and in our homes, making sure we understand how to keep ourselves safe!
Throughout our topic we shall look into how vibrations cause sounds and how they are able to travel. As well investigating their pitch and loudness. One thing we are most looking forward to is creating a human model of the way particles pass sound vibrations on, alongside staring in our own documentary -retelling how sound travels, to consolidate our learning.
