Mr Roche’s Class Summer Term 2019
These are just a few lines to ensure everyone is clear about classroom expectations for this term and to inform you about some of the subjects we will be covering.
All children require a full set of P.E. kit comprising of shorts, t-shirt, daps or trainers. Children should also bring sun hats, sun cream and water bottles in as we will be spending a good deal of time outside.
Book bags will be sent home every day. Minimum requirement is that children read every week day and this is noted at the back of their homework books (at least once over the weekend). Please use the homework book as a source of communication too if you have a query and are unable to get into school to see me.
All children read to me at least once a week during guided reading sessions and they will also receive support from staff and volunteers who come into the school to help.
Children will be given homework relating to their SATS. They will return home with papers they have done during the week, and work on answers that need correcting.
This term we will be studying Ancient Egypt and doing lots of investigations based around this. In Science we will be looking at animals and their habitats, evolution and inheritance and sex education. I will be sending out a letter prior to us starting sex education to outline the programme of study and what we will be covering. If you have any questions regarding this topic, please do not hesitate to contact me. Our literacy will be based around these subjects.
In addition to the above, we also have the school production, residential, class trip, Baptist church leavers assembly and the school leavers assembly, so a busy term!
On a Thursday morning I have PPA cover. This is a morning to allow me to plan and assess the children. During this time Ms Brunet-Lua will be teaching the class Maths, Art and DT. As part of my professional CPD, there may be times when I am on a course or it could be that I am off ill. In these circumstances supply cover will have to be found and although we endeavor to use the same teachers to cover to allow for continuity, it is not always possible. Feel free to pop in if you need to see me.
Regards Mr Roche
