Welcome to Class 7 2016/17 The Class will be taught by Miss McNeill, supported by Mr Jackson. There are currently 25 pupils in this class.
Hello, my name is Miss McNeill and I have been teaching for 4 years. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and taking my dog Bella for walks at the beach.
About Class 7
I am really looking forward to working with class 7 again. We will be working really hard to meet all of our targets, but will still have lots of fun along the way! Mr Jackson will teach Class 7 on a Monday – he has lots of fun history planned!
This term our English work will be based around the book ‘The Butterfly Lion’ by Michael Morpurgo. We will be writing a whole range of text types such as diary entries, persuasive letters and non-chronological reports. We will also be preparing for our SAT test by focusing on SPaG and reading and beginning to complete practice papers. As spelling is an important element of the tests we will be revising daily and completing spelling tests weekly.
This half term in maths we will be recapping place value and the four operations. We will be doing lots of work to develop our problem solving and reasoning skills and challenge ourselves to meet all of our targets. We will also be concentrating on our times tables and ensuring that we know them off by heart and can quickly recall them.
Science – Living things and their habitats
History – A local history topic
Geography – Raging Rivers
Computing – E-Safety
Art – Wildlife
PE will be every Thursday and children should bring their kits in on a Monday and take them home on a Friday.
Reading at home should be encouraged and children are expected to read at home at least 3 times a week. This doesn’t have to be their school book; it could be a book of their choice or a magazine. House points are awarded for reading regularly at home. Children should bring their signed reading diaries to school each day.
Children have access to Mathletics at school and home and are encouraged to use this site by logging in with their unique passwords.
