Indigo Class 2023 - 2024

Mrs O'Connor

Indigo Class Teacher

Welcome back and Hello Spring Term!  


I hope you all had a restful break and I wish you a 2024 filled with happiness, kindness and memory making.  


This term our topic is based on the play 'King Lear’ by Shakespeare. The name for our topic is…  


‘T’will be a storm.’  


We are working with Northwest Drama to develop a performance that we can take to the New Vic Theatre, Newcastle-Under-Lyme, to perform- this is one of the children’s ‘Explorer Curriculum Pledge- ‘perform onstage’. More information will be made available as the term progresses, but this is an incredible experience for the children and one of the highlights of the year.  


For other curriculum areas please see this term’s Medium-Term Plan at the bottom of the webpage. There is also a Spring weekly timetable attached, but this is subject to change due to busy Primary School life.  


Home Learning will continue to be handed out every Thursday and checked the following Thursday. We encourage the children to be responsible for their home learning and we do expect it to be handed in on time.   


PE will be on a Wednesday and Friday this term.  


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 another great term in 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
