Spruce Teacher: Mr D Owen TA: Miss W Asif
Welcome to Spruce Class!
Amongst other things, our class will be learning about Ancient Egypt, Space, and the Vikings. These topics represent some of our topic-based curriculum learning intentions. To build the children’s enthusiasm and bring their topics alive, we have included several trips and workshops throughout the year, as well as lots of music, practical activities, art and D.T.
All children will read the same fiction and non-fiction texts in English, although their academic objectives will be tailored to suit their respective year groups. We will cover a range of different text types and narratives. Similarly, our maths learning will accommodate the two different year groups’ learning objectives, although we will all cover the same overarching mathematical topics and skills.
Alongside their academic skills, we also take time to develop your children’s emotional understanding. This work includes activities to develop their understanding of social situations, friendship groups and their own well-being. If you have not already done so – please introduce yourself in the playground – it has been lovely to be made to feel so welcome by those of you to whom I have chatted.
