Nightingales Class

Mrs Prevett and Mrs Crump

We are very excited for all the children to return and get settled into our new class.

In English, the children will be exploring a variety of texts, including narratives, non-chronological reports, letters, instructions and poetry. Nightingales will concentrate on applying their phonetic knowledge, spelling rules and practicing their handwriting.

In Maths, the children will continue to use Times Tables Rockstars to support their learning in recalling their tables. Number and place value work will start the term and this will lead onto addition and subtraction. Nightingales will work to deepen their understanding in maths through problem solving and reasoning tasks.

Our topic focus question this term is ‘How did Stringfellow change the way we live now?’, we will be looking into his life in Chard, his achievements and how these have impacted on us today. In Science, we will be exploring Animals, including humans. We will investigate the differences between animals’ offspring, healthy eating and how to look after ourselves.

Nightingales’ Art lessons will be with Mrs Morton and the children will be refining their pencil skills while studying the artist Ayoi Kusama. Music will be full of Autumnal music such as flight of the Bumbleebee by Rimskyorska and in PE the class will learn how to successfully play invasion games. RE will give the children a chance to explore the religion of Judaism.

We look forward to a term full of hard work and success!
