Turtles class is made up of 10 lovely Key Stage 2 children and 5/6 lovely staff.

In Turtles class we really enjoy our learning. We love to learn in different ways. We especially enjoy singing songs to help with our Maths and English and we like to cook and use computers. The children in Turtles class are really good at learning in a calm way. We are focused and hardworking which is awesome. The most wonderful thing about Turtles class is that we are always so polite and friendly to each other. We have happy days.

Autumn Term 2 Timetable


Autumn Term 2Curriculum Info for parents
SubjectIdeas for home
MathsIn Maths we are looking at shapes. It would be really good if children could identify shapes, especially 3D shapes in their environment and packaging. How many faces, edges and corners does the shape have? We will also be looking at sequences and patterns with shapes.
EnglishIn English we are looking at rhyming stories. Perhaps you could share some at home, such as those by Julia Donaldson. Which words rhyme and what is the sound that rhymes? Can your child guess the word that comes at the end of the line?
ScienceIn Science we are learning about Humans! We are thinking about the parts of the body, labelling and learning about the functions.
I.C.TIn Computing we are perfecting our PowerPoint skills, adding sounds and videos.
PSHEOur PSHE links with our Science. We are considering Body Awareness.
GeographyIn Geography we are looking at protecting our environment, considering practical ways we can do this.
