Welcome to Opal Class
Hello! My name is Miss Mawson and I am the teacher of Opal class. We are very lucky to have Mrs Cording supporting us in our learning. Take a look at our page to find out what we are learning about.
In English, we have been exploring the poem ‘The Owl and the Pussy Cat’ by Edward Lear. We have created a class text map of the poem and have recalled it from memory. We then read and enjoyed a range of different animal poems to help inspire us with our writing. We have then been creating our very own descriptive poems all about animals. We have also been performing our poems to each other, thinking carefully about our use of voice and expression.
In maths, we have been focusing on number and place value. We have been using a range of manipulative resources to represent numbers to 10,000. We have identified the value of each digit in our numbers and have used part whole models and place value grids to partition them.
In music, we have been enjoying listening to music from South America and using the instruments to play the percussion parts of songs. Our current song we are learning is called ‘Vamos, let’s go!’
In Science, we are learning about the human body. We are looking at the cells, tissues and organs that make up our human bodies and the parts of our bodies involved in the digestive system! We have been taking an in depth look into the teeth in the human body and their functions.
In this section you will find links to key information about what is happening in our class this year.
Reading - If pupils read 3 times a week (and this is signed in their reading records) they will be able to move their name along the reading chart and will be awarded a reading token which go towards a prize from the treat box!
Spellings - Every Friday pupils are sent home with statutory spellings to practise for the spelling tests the following Friday!
Times Tables - To enable children to progress within maths it is essential that they can recall their times tables up to 12 x 12. Weekly practice will help children to improve their recall. The websites below have a range of games that can support children with this:
Don't forget to play on Times Tables Rockstars!
