           Pineapple Class 




The class teacher in Pineapple Class is Mrs Broad.  The teaching assistants are Mr Langford, Miss  Edgeworth and Mrs Coster.

The topics for spring term are ‘The Stories People Tell’ and ‘What’s it Made of?’  The topic ‘What’s it Made of? ‘ will start after the February half term. This is a topic about materials. The children will be exploring a variety of materials and 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. glass for windows.

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

Guided reading sessions will continue as will reading lessons in which comprehension skills are taught. Phonics continues to take place daily at 09.10.

Please continue to read with your child everyday. We check reading logs regularly to  give out Red Ted rewards.

In mathematics we will be looking at position and direction. We will also be investigating  the column method when adding       (Vertical addition) using tens and ones (Dienes).

In Literacy we will writing non-fiction texts about materials with links to our  topic ‘What’s it Made of?’. We will also be continuing with traditional tales as there are links with the materials topic such as The Three Little Pigs houses.

Thank you for your support.
