Welcome to Class 11WH
Class Teacher Mrs Warner-Hunter.
Welcome to our class, it’s a happy and busy working environment where we all aim to be ‘the best that we can be’.
Topics for 2017-2018 below:
Frank Einstein and the Antimatter Motor by Jon Scieszka – with a focus on newspaper report writing, persuasive posters and letter writing.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl – with a focus on instructional writing and leaflets.
This topic will be based on ‘The World Cup’ which is taking place in Russia this year. The topic will be supported by the text: ‘Window’ by Jeannie Baker.
‘Window’ is a picture book exploring the concept of exponential change.
A mother and baby look through a window at a view of wilderness and sky as far as they can see. As Sam, the baby, grows, the view changes. At first, in a cleared patch of forest, a single house appears, A few years pass and there is a village in the distance. The village develops into a city. This will link in to our Science and Geography work focusing on ‘sustainable earth’ and the effects of human behavior on the environment.
Our language work will focus on leaflet, letter writing and non-fiction books – we will all be working on our writing targets while completing our work.
Each class will have their own Country to study – we look forward to finding out what ours will be!
Homework will always support our learning in class and will be set on a Friday and returned on a Wednesday.
Our new Inspire maths scheme is challenging and your children will benefit greatly from knowing their times tables. Your child will know what times table they are focusing on and should practice regularly, this will help them tremendously in class.
PE in class 11WH takes place on a Thursday afternoon. During the summer term and with hopefully some warmer weather we will be focusing on competitive games and preparing for our upcoming Sports Day. It is important that your child has their PE kit in school with appropriate footwear in order to be able to take part in our activities safely.
