Tiger Class - Mrs Tunna

Welcome to TIGER CLASS

 

Our Class  Teacher  is Mrs Tunna. 

Our Classroom Assistants are Mrs Wynne and Mrs Bridson. 

A big welcome back to all the children in Tiger class as we start a new term.

 

I would like to say that we have made a good start to the Autumn term. All children in Tiger class  are settling in to their school routine once again.

 This term we have lots of exciting subjects for the children to participate in.

  

AUTUMN TERM 

 

We are very pleased to welcome the children back after the Summer break. This is a lovely time of year and the children have arrived back ready to work hard.

 

This term's curriculum and content:

 

English:

Fables and Traditional stories

The Tortoise and The Hare

The Lion and The Mouse

The Fox and the Crow

Exploring  story structure, morals and characters.

We will focus on sentence structure, reading for meaning and act out scenes to enable the children to fully appreciate the meanings that lie within these tales.  The ability to work with a partner or group is important in our class. It helps to build up the confidence of the children and enables them to get to know their new class mates.

Maths:

Number: We are starting the term off with the focus on Place Value. All groups will learn the value of digits within 2 and 3 digit numbers.

We practise our multiplication tables daily and this is done through fun songs that have catchy tunes. 

 

Science:

Our Science this year is incorporated into our afternoon Topic but also we have a focus week, which will enable the children to explore scientific experiments further.

We started off our Science this term with:

Investigating Forces

Water Resistance

Carrying out a fair test.  Recording results accurately.

 

 Topic:

Our first Topic theme for this term is: Athen versus Sparta.

(incorporating Art and Design and Technology)

Also there will be a focus on History and Geography.

This topic also explores Religion and PSHE but these subjects will also be taught during focus weeks to ensure depth of coverage.

Computing:

 

E Safety

Multimedia

P.E: 

School Athletic activities

The Tigers are currently working on their skills.   They are exploring how to enhance their performance by tackling activities in different ways. They will be given pointers on how to build on their skills as we move through our sessions.

As part of our Mind Friendly ethos within the school, the children also participate in Yoga activities this term. This has proved to be very beneficial, as the children come away relaxed and ready to take on board their next lessons.

I am very proud of how Tigers have settled in and maintained their focus on the tasks that they have completed. 

PSHE:

Health and Well Being

 

Music:

Drumming   

Purple Mash
