Welcome to Riverside Class!
What are learning?
Incredible Edibles Project
In Riverside class this term, children have become entrepreneurs. The children decided on a product to sell at this years summer fair. They completed market research, budget sheets and a persuasive piece of writing about their product. The children created their products and put their persuasive skills to the test!
As part of this project, the children will be extending their knowledge of geometry, learning about 2D shapes, angles and position. As part of this project, the children will use their knowledge of shape to design, plan and create a model of a garden meeting specific design specifications.
Long Timber Woods
Our final project this term is called 'Long Timber Woods'. As part of this project, the children will develop their observation skills with a focus on wildlife. Whilst studying the area, children will create questionnaires to find out more about how Long Timber Woods is used and will create an information leaflet about the local area.
Reading – Children in Riverside class are expected to read every night to build up reading fluency and record it in their planners. Please could you try to read with your child at least twice a week to support with both their decoding and understanding of the text, and record reading in their planner.
The planner will also be written in during school time by your child when they read independently, and by their class teacher or TA who reads with them individually or in a small group. Once a week the planner will be signed by the child, teacher and parent.
Maths/Project – Each Friday, your child will be given two small pieces of homework linked with our current learning in school. This may be related to any subject being studied, and will be due in the following Friday.
Spelling – Each Friday, your child will be given a short spelling list linked with the upcoming learning in school. They will need to practise spelling these words in preparation for a test the following week.
This term, Riverside have PE lessons on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Although, it is possible that on occasions we may do extra PE sessions, therefore it is advisable to leave PE kits in school every day.
