Apple Tree Class

Welcome to Apple Tree class!

I hope you have all had a lovely summer holidays and are well rested ready for a fun filled school year!

This half term our topic is Magnificent Monarchs! This topic will entail learning about English and British monarchs from AD 871 to present day. We will be finding out about different significant sovereigns; Alfred the Great, William the Conqueror, Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, Queen Victoria and Elizabeth II.

We will be taking part in different activities all related to our topic and at the end of the topic we will throw a Royal tea party.

In Apple Tree class we have high expectations for reading at home and school. Reading is extremely important for pupils, it helps them improve academically in all aspects of the curriculum. Please ensure that your child has an adult signature to show when they have read at home. The whole school challenge is to read three times a week – but I know we can do more than that! At the end of the half term which ever child has read 3 times a week the most will be crowned ‘Champion reader’.

PE will be every Monday with Prestige Sport and every Tuesday with Miss Brock-Gibbs. Please ensure that your child comes to school in full kit; long hair tied back and earring removed.

Apple Tree class visit the Library on a Tuesday. The children will choose a book to take home for the week. Please ensure these are returned to school each Tuesday so they can be changed.

I have uploaded the curriculum map and the Topic homework grid for this half term below.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to come and talk to me.

Miss Brock-Gibbs and Mrs Fenner.
