Growing In Faith and Learning
Welcome to Falcons!
Falcons Class is Upper Key Stage Two with just the Year 6 children. This year Falcons will be taught by Miss Williams with the support of Mrs. Hateley (Teaching Assistant) for three mornings a week. This is going to be a very exciting year with lots of fun things planned as well as a great deal of learning too! We have already welcomed a new class member to Falcons - Mrs. Pebbles (our class hamster!) She has proved an absolute hit with the children who love watching her whizz round the classroom in her ball!
Our theme this term is South America. We have begun by looking at the Amazon Rainforest and will continue to study some of the different countries on the continent. For our English, we are basing our learning around the book, 'Journey to the River Sea' by Eva Ibbotson. This is a story about an orphaned girl in 1914 who is taken in by her Uncle, who lives in the Amazon. I love this book and hope the children will too!
In Science we will be looking at habitats and living things.
The children receive merits for reading at home and having their journals signed by an adult. Please encourage your child to read and remind them to bring reading books and journals to school every day as we jot notes and Home Learning in them too. Thank you.
Times tables and spelling tests will be completed on a Friday.
Indoor kit - Wednesdays

Please make sure that a full kit is kept in school at all times and that jewellery is removed and long hair is tied back. Thank you.
