This half term Frogs have been working incredibly hard. Although we had to complete at learning at home this year, we have been showing resilience, perseverance and the Tithe Farm Way.
Our topic for the term is London and we are loving it! We have explored London Landmarks by making them with our friends, writing mini non-fiction books about them and drawing them on a Bee Bot mat for the Bees to explore! We have also been focusing on London in our English learning. The book we have looked at for the past two weeks is Paddington. Paddington the bear is found by Mr and Mrs Brown in Paddington station. We re-wrote a chapter from the book and they were FANTASTIC!
The reading we have been completing is super too! We have an independent reading session everyday and complete quizzes on our books. We have really enjoyed doing this everyday and we are certainly excited when we achieve 100% on our quizzes!
We are working hard in the classroom to get ready to move up to Year 3. The adults in our classroom are blown away by your attitude to learning. The friendships, resilience, dedication and willingness to learn is exceptional. Keep up the super work Frogs!
Hello future frogs! Check out the video below to meet your new teachers and have a peek at your new classroom. Please be aware the classrooms are set up in accordance to government guidelines and may not look exactly the same in September!
For more information about next year check out the PowerPoint under the video.
We hope you have a lovely summer and we are really excited to see you all in September!
Welcome to Frogs class page!
Please keep checking back for updates about our learning and all the amazing experiences we are having!
Our class teachers are Miss Croft, Mrs Evans and Miss Niculcea .
PE takes place on a Tuesday morning and a Friday afternoon, please try to make sure your child has sensible footwear for these days. During the winter months, children will be doing PE outdoors, so make sure they have warm clothing.
Homework will be handed out on a Friday and due back on a Wednesday, this will include:
* weekly spellings (children will be tested on these on a Friday)
* a spelling activity
* MyMaths (accessible online) OR a paper maths activity
* Spelling Shed (accessible online)
Children will also receive a Take Home Task to complete at home, this will be a task for pupils to complete over a few weeks to make sure it is absolutely fantastic!
Finally, could you please ensure your child is reading at home as much as possible. It allows them the chance to show off what they can do but also helps them to make great progress.
During this challenging time we will be setting work online for the children to complete. We are uploading it on Microsoft teams. You should have received your child's login details on one of the letters sent in the home learning packs. We hope you enjoy this learning experience and stay safe and well.
We are super impressed with all the learning Frogs have been doing at home during this difficult time. Check out some of theirlearning below!
We discussed our different musical tastes and came up with a playlist of all our favorite songs. Click the link to see the playlist.
You have done some amazing writing!
This term we are learning all about London and it's long history! Did you know London was originally built by the Romans and has been around for around 2000 years? We have also explored some of the landmarks in London and we are excited for our trip to London in March.
To help us make links between areas of our learning, in our classroom we have a concept map. This has a range of words on it that we will cover during the spring term. Having this up in our room helps us to see all the new vocabulary we are going to be using, seeing how it links to other areas of our learning and it also gives us time to do some research to find out what new words mean before we start exploring them!
In history we have been learning all about The Great Plague! We learnt that London was not a nice place to live in 1665 when The Great Plague spread through England. We really enjoyed learning what the street were like! We have also explored what the symptoms of the plague were and how people thought they could prevent the plague - some of their ideas were very interesting! Did you know the song Ring-a-Ring of Roses is about this time in history?
We are looking forward to learning about the Great Fire of London and how it helped to put an end to the Great Plague!
In maths we have exploring using the column method for addition and subtraction. We are getting really good at using our maths vocabulary words: such as equivalent and commutative.
All Around India
This term we will be exploring all about India. We have already located India on a globe and learnt about the seven continents and five oceans.
We are currently trying to organise a trip for later this term and we will send out the information as soon as possible. In the meantime keep an eye on our page for more information about our learning!
