WELCOME TO JAPAN CLASS!
Here, you can find out a little more about what we are learning and getting up to during our very busy days at school...
Welcome back to school for the Spring Term! This is sure to be a term full of lots of exciting learning and fun for Japan Class...
Our TOPIC this term is all about Mountains and Coasts and will see us becoming experts on the location and names of mountains and mountain ranges throughout the world; discovering how mountains were formed; finding out about life in the mountains; exploring the work of artists who painted mountains and also learning about the form and shape of coastlines and their features.
We're starting the term with some fractions work in MATHS and a study of biographies and shape poetry in our ENGLISH lessons, which will be themed around Historical Heroes.
We're very excited about the tennis coaching that will be happening in our PE lessons this term! Hopefully, Japan Class will be at Wimbledon standard in time for the summer...
It's certainly going to be a busy term!
Please have a look at our class TOPIC WEB and our Topic KNOWLEDGE ORGANISER to find out even more about our learning. Both documents are linked on this page...

World Mental Health Day: Hello Yellow!
We've enjoyed taking part in lots of different activities today, exploring the ways that we can recognise and express our feelings and then find the most effective ways of managing them. We've learnt to do some slow breathing to help us feel calm and focused and the children have each made a 'Positive Self-Talk' flower to take home.

I challenged the children to create some dolls of people from the Stuart period at home. They could choose whether to represent the Puritan or the flamboyant French styles. Aren't these fantastic?
