Indigo Class 2020 - 2021

Mrs O’Connor

Indigo Class Teacher


Welcome back to the Classroom! 

This half term our topic will be based on the book ‘Trash’, by Andy Mulligan. The name for our topic is… 

‘Treasure, or Trash?’ 

Spellings will continue to be introduced on Fridays- they will be shared via Teams. We will review these over the following week so the children become familiar with spelling patterns as well as the words and meanings. They will be tested the following Thursday. We will also be focusing on the statutory spellings for years 3, 4, 5 and 6- these are at the bottom of this page. 


Home Learning will continue to be handed out every Thursday via Teams and checked the following Wednesday night. 


PE will be on a Wednesday and Friday this term. 


For other curriculum areas please see this term’s ‘Medium Term Plan (MTP)’ at the bottom of the page.  


A huge plea for you to continue to share ‘reading experiences’ with your children this term. Retrieval and inference skills have come on leaps and bounds last term, this term we need to focus on increasing vocabulary- finding out the meaning of new words and exploring them and incorporating them into our own writing. Sometimes, the best way to do this initially is verbally, so talking about what is being read and explaining unfamiliar words is crucial to the development of language skills. 


I can’t wait for exciting times in the classroom with Indigo Class! Thank you for all your support in these challenging times. 


The quote for this term 


‘Never stop learning because life never stops teaching.’ 


And still remember 




Many Thanks 

Leanie O’Connor and the Indigo Team
