Junior Class 1


 Welcome to Junior Class 1

 2021 - 2022

Our thinking statement is:


  • To create good work by asking amazing questions which makes learning fun.
  • To develop our minds and thinking brains which will lead to knowledge and success.
  • To leap from challenge to challenge, never giving up, but showing resilience, perseverance and determination.

We are a mixed class of Year 3 and 4 children.

We discuss the topics/themes that we want to find out about and study during the year.

These are our choices for 2021/22:

Autumn 1 – The Romans
Autumn 2 – Poems/Fruit
Spring 1 – Transport
Spring 2 – Heroes
Summer 1 – Monsters Griffins and Dinosaurs
Summer 2 – The Mayans

Things to remember:

PE Kits - come in your PE kit on Wednesdays.

Bring a named water bottle (and sun cream and sunhat if it’s going to be hot or a hat and gloves if it's cold)

Read your reading book every night for up to 20 minutes and record your reading in your home learning book. Ask an adult to sign this for you. Use the questions on the learning letter to talk about what you have read.
 Homework is given on Thursday and due in the following Thursday - please see Google Classroom for maths home learning and Spelling Shed.

Please go on Rockstars 2 - 3 times a week too. It will help you develop your times table knowledge.
