Our class teacher is Miss Martin and our teaching assistants are Mrs Newton and Miss Hill.
We are all really looking forward to working with you all this year.
There are 30 children in our class- 17 girls and 13 boys.
As part of our British values we have been discussing democracy and how we can influence decision making through the democratic process. The class took part in a mock election with a ballot paper of nominees to select the Class representatives for School Council, Sports Council and Eco Warriors. The children were given opportunities to present a speech to their peers to persuade them to vote for them. We looked at how the democratic system works in Britain and the advantages and disadvantages of this.
We discussed that the rule of law protects everyone and how we need school and class codes to distinguish right from wrong and also how these may differ from some religious views and opinions.
Through our PSHE lessons, we have discussed and modelled freedom of speech via pupil participation in circle time and class discussions and debates. We respect and promote our cultural and religious differences by celebrating multicultural festivals.

Class Timetable and Yearly Overview
Author of the Term
Our author for Autumn 1 is S.F.Said. During our daily read aloud sessions we will be reading Varjak Paw.
National Coding Week
As part of National Coding week, we developed our understanding of vocabulary related to coding. We completed a matching activity and a crossword to show our understanding. We then followed a set of instructions to complete a coding game. We all really enjoyed this.
Andy Warhol Art Work
We all created our own piece of art in the style of Andy Warhol. We were inspired by his art work based on Mount Vesuvius. We used oil pastels to carefully shade and then added contrasting water paint. We all really enjoyed this activity.
We have been using the apparatus in PE. We have been carefully practicing our balancing and different ways of travelling, whilst using the apparatus.
Picking Apples from the Orchard
The children really enjoyed picking their own apples from the orchard. After they had been washed, the children really enjoyed eating them at playtime.
Shared Reading- Drama
We have been looking at The Highway man in our daily shared reading sessions. The children have really enjoyed learning about the poem and the use of language. The children also worked in small groups to act out the poem.
Forest School in Oak 5
We have been lucky enough to be offered the chance to take part in Forest Schools, once a week during the Autumn term. We are all really enjoying these sessions so far. We have developed an understanding of ways to stay safe in the forest and woodland area.
