Green Class 2017 - 2018

Mr Greasby

Green Class Teacher

Welcome to Green class and to what will no doubt be a very busy, exciting and enjoyable year ahead. I will be teaching your child for the majority of the week with the exception of a Tuesday, when Mrs Hadfield will be teaching the class. I hope that your child is as enthusiastic as I am for the year ahead as I am most certainly looking forward to starting my learning adventure at Pear Tree!

For your information, please find below details of your child’s homework tasks and topics planned for this year, which I hope will help you to support your child in the best possible way. All homework tasks are intended to benefit your child’s learning, by consolidating work done in school and encouraging them to work more independently at home.

Home learning and Student Diaries

Your child will be given a homework folder in which homework details will be recorded. If for any reason your child is unable to complete a home learning task, please let me know.

In Green class, you child will receive regular home learning tasks in accordance with the school’s home learning policy. This will include:

  • Daily reading (for at least 20 minutes)

  • Weekly spellings (Set on a Wednesday to be learnt for a test the following Tuesday).

  • A weekly Maths or English task (normally set on a Friday to be returned by the following Thursday) or a home learning task associated with our termly topic.

Reading Records

Your involvement in hearing your child read is actively encouraged throughout Green Class. Your child has been given a reading record, which it would be much appreciated if you could sign when you have listened to your child read. Engaging your child in discussion about what they are reading will greatly benefit them as they progress throughout Key Stage 2.

The Curriculum

The curriculum for the first term will be readily available through the Green Class Cloudy Overview. Our topic for the first term is the Rampaging Romans, with us travelling as far back as Ancient Egypt after Christmas, then looking at more locally the history of Nantwich during the Summer term. Our topics will include work based in the subjects of Literacy, History, Geography, Art and Design & Technology.

May I ask you to ensure your child has their P.E. kit in school, clearly labelled in a bag, every Monday. Your child will be taking part in P.E. lessons on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so it is preferable that they have their kit in throughout the week.

We already have a number of exciting trips booked for your child this term, the first of which is to the Grosvenor Museum in Chester on 6th October. Letters for these trips shall be coming out in due course.

Finally, may I also remind you that your child should have a water bottle for use in class and for break / lunch time. Your child has been allocated a locker for them to keep their belongings in throughout the school day and shall have access to it whenever they may need it.

Many thanks for your co-operation and support and I look forward to meeting with you soon. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries or concerns.
