Class 6 - Shark

Term 1 Report

In Shark class this term we have been getting to know each other and deciding on some important class rules together. We have explored our likes and dislikes and compared similarities and differences between ourselves and others, developing our tolerance and understanding.

In literacy we have been practising letter formation, writing in full sentences and have tried writing and punctuating questions correctly. We have written descriptions about ourselves and created quizzes based on books we have been reading.

In Maths, we have been developing skills in solving addition and subtraction problems using a variety of methods. We have been able to locate resources around the classroom to help us with our work and the pupils have been developing independence in seeking out these resources to support their learning.

In PSHE we have been doing work about being a good friend. We are developing skills in taking turns, playing fairly and accepting others’ opinions. We have been able to demonstrate being a good friend and have recognised positive qualities in our peers.

As part of our topic work we have discussed ourselves and our families. We have learnt about family trees and how these are created. We have even made our own and displayed them in the classroom.

This term, some of the pupils in Shark class have been to visit the UET Farm where they have had the opportunity to use tools to create wooden birdhouses. They have worked well in pairs and followed instructions to ensure their safety.

Term 1 has been a great start to the year for Shark class. Well done Sharks!
