Waterloo

Welcome to Waterloo Bridge Class

Class Teacher – Mrs K Fallon

Teaching Assistant – Miss Hollie Halcombe

We are pleased to welcome your child to Waterloo Bridge class and are grateful for your help and support.

 

Reading

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.

Homework

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.

Other

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.

Week Beginning 14th October

October 13, 2019

The children enjoyed their visits to Get Fired last week and produced some beautiful artwork. Their tiles have been left in Get Fired to be fired in their kiln. The children will be able to take their tiles home after the half term holiday.

This week our learning will be as follows;

  • In mathematics we will continue to use formal written methods to carry out addition and subtraction calculations. We will learn to check our answers using inverses.
  • In English we will write instructions for making a Stone Age tile.
  • In science we will test the strength of different magnets.
  • In topic time we will continue our learning on the Stone Age.
We are looking forward to our Stone Age dress up day on Friday and hope that as many children as possible will dress up.
