Welcome to Otter Class! We hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and we wish you a fun filled and healthy New Year!
As you will be aware there have been some changes in the Otter Class team, Mrs Green will now be teaching the children Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Moss will be teaching Thursday and Friday. The class will continue to be supported by Miss Mexter throughout the week.
We have only been back three days but already the children are embracing the new challenges and Curriculum. We have a new motto ‘Do not waste a second!’ Otters have embraced this concept already, well done Otters
Otter class are trialing a different approach to the wider Curriculum this term. We have selected three ‘key concepts’ that will link all our learning this term. POWER, BELONGING and BELIEF. Through these concepts we will explore the Romans, electricity, Varjak Paw and much more!
We are so excited to be exploring a wonderful text called Varjak Paw. It’s a beautifully written story about a pure bred Mesopotamian Blue who just feels he doesn’t fit with the rest of his family. Our Key Concept of belonging will help us explore this stunning text.
Our focus this term will be on times tables. Learning times tables makes many mathematical concepts so much easier. We would love to hear about inventive and exciting ways that children are learning their times tables!
