Welcome to Waterloo Bridge Class
Class Teacher – Mrs K Fallon
Teaching Assistants – Miss Gourlay and Miss Smith
We are pleased to welcome your child to Waterloo Bridge class and are grateful for your help and support.
Children are asked to read at home on a daily basis and their book should be brought to school each day. It is helpful if parents can comment regularly in their child’s Reading Record, particularly when their child has finished their book. Children are responsible for changing and selecting their own books in the morning.
Children will be given homework each Friday to be handed in by the following Tuesday. Children are also asked to learn spellings and times tables at home. They are responsible for recording their homework in their homework diary.
Children are asked to bring to school a water bottle. They should have a waterproof coat when it is raining or the forecast is for rain.
This week our learning will be as follows;
- In mathematics we will be developing our skills in column addition and subtraction. We will solve problems using addition and subtraction.
- In English we will be continuing our unit of work based on the Bluest of Blues by Fiona Robinson. We will be writing letters in role as Anna Atkins.
- In history we will learn about why the Romans came to Britain.
- In science we will be introducing a new topic on plants.
- In PE we will learn to play cricket.
- In RE we will learn about Christian belief in the Holy Trinity.
PE will continue to be each Tuesday and Thursday. Children should wear their PE kits on those days.
This week we have a shorter week as we break up on Monday. The children have worked really hard this term both at home and at school. This week our learning will be as follows;
