Welcome to Amber Class
Friday 17th May
We've had another great week in Amber Class! Here's a taste of some of the things the children have done...
Well done to Y2 for trying really hard in their SATs reading tests. We'll be doing the maths papers next week.
Our class assembly will be on Thursday 6th June at 9.15am. All welcome! There will be a reminder letter in your child's bookbag. I'm sure you'll hear your child rehearsing our song, poem and words at some point
Remember to visit Woollen Woods! This year, the children have created butterflies for our school tree. Thank you to Mrs Kerry for coming up with the idea for us to make butterflies and for providing all the materials (and the fab introductory assembly to get the children inspired!). The event is on from Saturday 18th May until Monday 27th May at the Deer Park woods in Belper. Visit https://www.belpertowncouncil.gov.uk/news/2019/04/belper-woollen-woods-18-may-2019 for more info.
Have a lovely weekend!

We hope you all had a lovely half term holiday.
This half term our topic is "What a Wonderful World!" Take a look at the topic web to find out what the children will be learning about.
This week the children have been using money (please continue this at home by involving the children in your visits to the shops) and learning animal poems. Click on the links below to hear 2 of the poems we've read!
In Science lessons, the children have been finding out about adult animals and their babies and about the life cycles of cats, butterflies and frogs.
In Personal, Health and Social Education, the children discussed different feelings and emotions and had their face photographed to show that emotion/feeling. Back in the classroom, there was lots of fun and laughter as they worked out what their friends' faces showed!
Thank you for your continued support with reading and homework. Please read regularly, ideally every night if you can, and note down your comments in the green reading record. Reading is the key to knowledge and we find it really does make a huge amount of difference to your child's enjoyment of school.
Have a great weekend! Hope you get out and about and have loads of fun together.

This afternoon the children have been thinking about how they can all be a superhero in school by working hard and doing their best. Some of the children also designed their own mask
Friday 1st February
As always, the children have been working really hard and having lots of fun - well done everyone!
Next week they will continue to learn about plants and flowers. The children will be finding out about different types of trees. They will also be reading Jack and the Beanstalk and completing activities around this story. In maths, the children will be practising their multiplying and dividing facts.
We love the children bringing things in from home so anything Jack related would be warmly received!
Enjoy your weekend!

This week in English the children have been learning about diaries. Feel free to encourage your child to write a diary and bring it in to school to share with the class. In lessons next week, we'll be writing diaries.
Maths this week has been about adding! The Year 1s have been adding 1 or 2 more to a number. The Year 2s have been adding multiples of 10 and 11, 12 and 13 to any 2-digit number. Have a go at home if you get chance!
The children are working hard learning their lines for the Christmas play. Well done everyone! The singing is fantastic too
During PE lessons, the children have been practising their balancing skills. Adam, our coach, has been teaching the class to use their eyes and body when using their balance.
Next week the children will continue to write diaries. They'll learn about subtraction in maths and begin to design their London vehicle in topic.
Have a lovely weekend!
It's Anti-bullying Week! The theme of the week is Respect and we are learning all about what it means to be respectful. We're also learning why bullies bully and how we can say STOP!
Here is a clip that the children have watched in class:
Welcome back! Hope you've all had a good half term holiday.
This week in Amber Class we continue to study London. The children will be creating a clay sculpture of a London landmark.
Please continue to read with your child at least 4 times per week. Homework will be given out tomorrow (Wednesday). This half term we've set the usual spellings homework (you'll get the whole half term so you can see what your child will be learning at a glance) and the occasional maths activity to complete.
Commencing Monday 22nd October is AUSTRALIA WEEK across the whole school! We'll be learning about everything Antipodean. Activities will include creating dot paintings, learning facts about the country and hopefully some baking
Please feel free to send in items of interest if you have anything related to Oz!
Homework is handed out on a Wednesday, back in on a Tuesday. Please make sure the homework book (pink book) is in school on Tuesdays, even if the homework isn't completed, so that the new spellings can be stuck in. Homework consists of spellings and reading (daily please - every little helps!).
