Jupiter Class


Hello, and welcome to Jupiter Class. 

Topic:  Our topic for terms 3 and 4 will be Ancient Egypt!  We will be learning about the culture of the Ancient Egyptians - how they lived their lives, what food they ate, what their homes were like and what happened to them when they died!  We will also be looking at where Egypt is located on the map and how this affects its climate and weather; we'll also be looking at how Egypt has changed over the years.

PE: PE is an important part of the primary curriculum.  It encourages children to do exercise and they see the importance of exercise in a healthy lifestyle.  You can support this by ensuring your child has a PE kit in school everyday.  This terms PE topic is yoga (until February half term), so please could you provide shorts and a t-shirt for indoor PE.  We will occassionally need to move our PE lessons outside and as it is cold please also ensure they have some joggers and long-sleeved top, just in case.

Homework: homework is an important part of your childs learning.  It gets them used to independent study, which is so important as they get older.  They will be set one piece of English, Maths and spellings every 10 days.  Homework is sent home on a Friday and is due back the following Monday.  Please find your homework instructions and any worksheets you might need on the Homework Portal.  Even if you childs book has not been sent home and you expecte it to have been set, check the portal!

Other Key Information: Swimming will begin after February half term and will take place on a Monday afternoon.  Please ensure your child has their swimming costume/trunks, a towel and goggles (if they would like), every Monday.  If you are able to help out with swimming, please come and speak with myself.

We are welcomeing children from New Siblands into our classroom every Thursday. The afternoons will consist of art and Makaton, allowing the children to build relationships with children from the local school.  This is building on the PE sessions we were involved with in Terms 1 and 2 at New Siblands.

If you ever have any concerns regarding your childs learning, then please do call in to speak with me, or make an appointment via the school office.

Many thanks,

Miss Knight
