Hello! I am Miss Wheatley - Yates and I am the class teacher in Oak class.
Mrs Johnson, Mrs Talbot and Mrs Thomas will also be working with us throughout the year.
Our Topic for this half term is titled
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 :)
Things to consider before the start of our project...
Where in the world is Italy?
Have you ever been to a restaurant?
What do they eat in Italy?
What would you see if you went to Italy?
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 :)
We will be having a special visitor coming in to school to talk to us about Italy and Miss Wheatley - Yates is hoping we will have the chance to go out and visit a real Italian restaurant.
Take a look at the pictures below - what are they? Make a prediction.
Soon in our topic lessons you will be learning all about these.
Please ensure that your child's book bag is in school every day. Please read with your child every night and discuss what you have read. You do not need to read the whole book at once. Reading books will be changed three times a week but only if your child has had two good reads of their book.
Homework is given out on a Friday and will reflect the work that the children have completed in class, it will then be collected in on the following Thursday.
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.
The children will have 2 PE lessons a week, including a specialist FUNDA session. Please, please ensure all your child’s clothing is clearly labelled with their full name. PE kits will be sent home at the end of every half term for you to wash. Please ensure they are back in school during the first week back.
Thank you for your continued support with your child's learning.
