Welcome to Peach Classpeach-image-free-1


The class teacher in Peach Class is Ms Jardine.  The teaching assistant is Mrs Coster.

Our topic for autumn term is ‘Time Detectives’. This is a history topic about people and events from the past. The children will be exploring events from the past such as The Great Fire of London. They will be investigating the properties of materials in more detail. Do talk to your child about what objects are made of and why that material was used for a particular object i.e. why did the houses of London burn down so quickly during the Great Fire of London and what were water buckets made out of in 1666?

P.E will be on Wednesday morning.  Please ensure named P.E kits come into school on a Monday and stay in school all week, thank you.

This term we will introduce guided reading sessions and also teach comprehension skills in reading lessons. Phonics continues to take place daily at 09.10. Please continue to read with your child everyday and sign your child’s reading record, thank you. We check reading logs regularly to give out Red Ted rewards in assembly and the children really enjoy moving up levels within their reading books.

In maths we will be looking at money and how to make small amounts using different coins. We will also be looking at the properties of 2D shapes.  ‘Beat That Maths’ (CLIC maths) will be sent home on Fridays – these are for you to keep and to see where you child needs a little extra help in their maths.

In Literacy we will be looking at poetry, non fiction writing and story writing.

Please do not hesitate to ask if you would like some ideas on how to support your child’s learning.

Ms Jardine and Mrs Coster
