Blue Class 2017 - 2018

Mr Sykes

Blue Class Teacher

Welcome to Blue Class.  In the first two weeks we will concentrate on basic skills and routines.  After that, we are getting into our topic for the the Autumn Term with Stig!

“Stig of the Dump” by Clive King, a modern children’s classic, is the starting point for our learning this autumn term – from English to history, D&T and science.

“The story is about what happens when two boys, who are complete opposites of each other, become friends.  Stig and Barney's friendship blossoms despite a few bumps on the way.”

Questions raised by the book:

Where did people come from?

How do we know what happened a long time ago?

How did people survive in the ice age?

What happens to our rubbish?

How can I persuade someone that recycling is important?

How can I reuse and recycle materials into something else?

How did we get from stone tools to the technology we have today?

What questions can you come up with?

An overview of the topic together with a timetable will be available to download soon.

I am making a new group on Edmodo for the new Blue Class.  I will email a code so that your child can make a log in.  They can then start posting what they have been finding out.

P.E. and games are on Tuesdays and Fridays, but P.E. kits should be kept in school just in case.  Books and Reading Diaries are brought in every day and returned back home for reading – every day.  Named water bottles are also brought in daily with fresh water, and returned home for cleaning and refilling.  Children have their own locker for their coat, snack and P.E. kit and lunch box.  In the classroom, there is a named tray for each child where they can keep their own cartridge pen or fineliner pen in a small pencil case.  The school pens are not very reliable and I find children learn write much neater if they learn using their own cartridge pen or fineliner.  Past year groups have taken a pride in having their own ink pen.   Homework is given out on Tuesdays and collected the following Monday.   This is so that homework can be organized to suit your family – some like to do homework during the week leaving weekends free whilst others are busy during the week and prefer to do homework at the weekends.  Mrs. Steele and Mrs. Benson will work with individual children and small targeted groups.

There will be a meeting for parents later in September to explain all in more detail, and to answer any questions.
