Willow Mason - Pine Class - What's Your Line (1).mp3



As the spring term is a relatively short term Pine class are going to focus on the same topic for the whole of the Spring term. The topic ‘Sensational Safari’ will allow children to learn about the continent of Africa. The children will then look in more depth at Kenya and the traditional way of life, as well of the array of wildlife that can be seen in the wild.

Our literacy genres will be linked into the topic, writing non-chronological reports and stories based on tales written about Africa. Science is also linked learning about how animals adapt to their environment. During art sessions Pine class will learn about colour, learning about mixing, blending and using these skills to produce artwork based on a variety of artists such as Mark Rothko and Wassily Kandinksky.

Pine class are swimming for the first half of the spring term on a Thursday, with regular PE session on a Wednesday with Mrs A Tilley too. On a Tuesday the children will continue to have French and music with our specialist teachers. Library books will be changed regularly on a Thursday.

Generally homework is set on a Friday and will be due in on the Wednesday of the following week, there are exceptions to this, so please keep a close eye on your child’s planner.

Every day your child is expected to bring into school a named water bottle and a signed planner. Please can you also ensure that clothing in uniform and PE kits are clearly labelled, as it is amazing how many jumpers are left unclaimed at the end of the school day!

If you have any queries/ questions or think that you may be able to help us with our learning this term please do not hesitate to come and speak to me.
