Hello! My name is Miss Aspin and I am the teacher of Beech class. Mrs Murray, Mrs Ormerod and Miss Spencer also work with us in Beech class to help us with our learning.
Our Topic for this half term is
We will be focusing on one country, learning about its food, people, language and landmarks and we will put all this knowledge together to create our own class themed restaurant. Our adults will be invited along at the end of the term to try out our hosting and cooking skills :)
We will begin by generating lots of questions for us to search, explore and find out the answer to.
As our project progresses we will update our class blog :)
Miss Aspin is hoping we will have the chance to go out and visit a real American restaurant. Remember to keep checking our class page for weekly updates :)
Where in the world is America?
Have you ever been to a restaurant?
What do they eat in America?
What would you see if you went to America?
Please can I remind you that book bags must be in school every day and your child must read with an adult every night - remember two or three pages a night is much better than the whole book once a week. :)
Some activities you can do to support reading and understanding are...
* Act out the story
* Use expression
* Retell the story without the reading book
* Do a word hunt
* Be digraph detectives
* Ask your child to try and change the story slightly
Homework Books - Please make sure that homework books stay in your child's book bag and come to school every day. Homework will usually be given out every Friday.
I will take homework books out of your child's book bag every Thursday to look at their work and set new homework for the Friday.
If there is a problem or you have any questions about the homework then please do not hesitate to come and speak to me about it.
Please ensure your child has a PE kit in school. It would be really useful if children left their PE kits in school during the half-term so we definitely know we have them in case our PE slot is changed. Please make sure you name all clothing!
PLEASE make sure that all your child's clothing is named so that if it gets lost or placed with other clothing it can be returned easily.
Once again if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
