Pineapple Class


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

Our topic this term for February and March is ‘What’s it Made Of?   This is a science topic about materials. The children will be conducting simple investigations and exploring 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 Thursday afternoon but if the weather is fine then we may go outside on the field on different days.

We are encouraging the children to write stories with a beginning, middle and end and also to do non-fiction writing about materials.

Reading takes place as guided reading and reading is also taught as a subject where there is a focus such as finding information within a text.

Joins are being introduced in handwriting and the children are enjoying forming these.

In maths we will be introducing multiplication, division and fractions.

Forest Schools will take place within the school grounds.

Thank you for your support.

Mrs Broad
