DOVES

Welcome to Doves class!
I am Miss Angell, Doves class teacher. We have two 1:1 teaching assistants, Miss Claxton and Mrs Kelso. There are 20 children in our class
 
Take a look at our class page to see what we are up to in Doves Class!
 
 
Our Topic for the Summer Term is Dinosaurs! We have already found out lots of information about Dinosaurs. We have been completing some home learning tasks and have been discovering some amazing things about our new Topic! 
During our topic this term we will have lots of learning experiences. We will be linking our topic to our writing by producing a non chronological report, descriptive writing, poems and a report.
In maths this half term we are looking at multiplication and division, fractions and position and direction.
 
Due to the nature of our Dinosaur topic, much of our science work will be looking at animals. We will look at the different structures of animals, thinking also about their diets and habitats. Most excitingly of all, we are going to practise being ‘real scientists’ by doing a lot of sorting, grouping and comparing.  This links nicely to our history and geography learning; we will be thinking about and discovering how we know about dinosaurs, and where in the world they lived. Throughout this topic, lots of big and exciting words will be introduced.
We will be starting Forest School every Wednesday afternoon where we will be taking our learning outdoors!

During our Forest School sessions we take our learning outside, we get to explore the outdoors and learn in a different way.

Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL of the children lots of  opportunities to achieve and develop their confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in our natural environment. 

 
 
PE will continue to take place on a Monday and Thursday afternoon.  Therefore all the children need to have a PE kit in school on those days.  The village hall can be quite chilly in cold weather so you may prefer to put a pair of tracksuit bottoms into you child’s PE bag.  Please ensure that all items (including clothing, water bottles, and lunch boxes) that come to school with your child are clearly named to avoid loss.  As part of our PE lessons we will be doing gymnastics and showing good control and coordination and learning to move and travel using our bodies in our lessons.
