Apple Tree Class

Welcome to Apple Tree class!

My name is Miss Brock-Gibbs and I am going to be teaching Year ½ for the Summer Term. I love planning exciting outdoor lessons as well as fun and active PE activities. My favourite thing to do is play sport and in my spare time I go and play Rugby and Korfball.

I am very excited to be welcoming you back for the Summer term and I can not wait to start learning with you all for the next 14 weeks. Over the next 7 weeks our topic is the Scented Garden! We will be learning about the seasons as well as reading the Secret Garden. We will be discovering who Sir Francis Beaufort was and why he is such a significant person.

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!

PE will be every Monday starting the 19/04/21 with Prestige Sport and every Thursday with Mrs Dearden. Please ensure that your child come 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.
