Welcome to Otters’ class with Mr Glentworth. We have some fabulous adults working in our class throughout the week: Mrs Trott, Mrs Stoker, Mrs Larcombe, Mrs Koike and Mrs Guyett. The children have settled quickly into year six and are working well.
In Otters we expect the highest of standards in behaviour, attitude, learning and homework. We aim to set the standards for all the other pupils in the school, being positive role models. We are lucky to have Miss Dalwood who teaches us drama, dance and music on a Wednesday and also Mr Jackson who teaches us PE on a Friday afternoon.
In English this term we will be focussing initially on grammar skills and then writing narratives and a range of non-fiction texts. In Maths we focus on Number; exploring place value, rounding and negative numbers. We then focus on our calculation skills before moving into fractions.
Our topic this first half-term is a geography topic looking at climate zones and before Christmas we study the Tudors. In Science we are learning about Animals, including Humans
