Welcome to Meerkat's Class!

Hello and welcome to the Meerkat's class page. Mrs Taylor and Mrs Lockley teach the Meerkats and Mrs Evans supports the learning. 

We are really excited for this year as we have lots of fun things planned! 

 

Our P.E days are  Wednesdays so please send the children in their full PE kit on this day.

Isabelle has been learning about Captain Sir Tom Moore and the wonderful thing he did for the NHS and decided she would like to do something kind too ! It was her idea to donate a gift basket to her local doctors surgery. She decided to include coffee and biscuits so they can have a nice break ! She even contributed some of her pocket money to buy some jam tarts ! I’m sure they will enjoy !

Anti Bullying Week

Today we had a focus on Anti Bullying. We spoke about bullying being on purpose and occurring over and over again. The children know that bullying can take many forms and that we need to tell someone if they or a friend is being bullied.

Stars of the Week

 

 

Hello everyone.

 

We have had a really great start to the new school year in the Meerkats. The children have adapted really well to the new class routines and are enjoying working and playing in their class bubble.  We have introduced some playtime resources, which are proving popular and dinnertime with their class bubble appears to be working well too.
 

Our learning so far…

 

  • In Maths, we have been learning all about place value and have used the greater than/less than and equals symbols to compare numbers.  We have now moved on to learning to use the part/whole model to solve addition.

 

  • In Science, we have been learning about keeping our bodies safe and healthy and also learning about the five senses.

 

  • In PE, we are taking advantage of being able to go outside and are developing our skills in football.

 

  • Guided Reading has got off to a good start with our focus on books written by the author, Martin Waddell.  We have really enjoyed our focussed activities on  Owl Babies and the Pig in the Pond.

 

  • The children are thoroughly enjoying our regular PE day on Wednesdays.

 

Dungeons and Dragons!

 

  • We have begun our exciting topic on Dungeons and Dragons.  Much of our work will be cross curricular and will include studying The Battle of Hastings 1066, William the Conqueror and Dragons!

 

  • In our English lessons, we have been writing all about dragons, including writing descriptive sentences and instructions for how to trap a dragon. We are now starting our unit on William the Conqueror in readiness for writing a recount of the Battle of Hastings.

 

  • In art we have some great opportunities planned in over the next few weeks, the results of which we will begin to add to our class page….so please keep an eye out.
