We Are Palm!

What is my child going to learn about this term?

We have sent home a copy of the learning we have planned for your child this term. On this sheet you should find an explanation of what will be covered for each area of the national curriculum. You will also find aspects we describe as ‘memorable experiences’. These are the elements that will bring the learning to life for the children. You will also see an ‘end product’ section. Here we describe what the children are working towards; this could be a display, performance or a piece of writing. We believe this helps to give the children a focus or reason for learning the information. You will also find references made to ‘drip and block’. Drip refers to things that happen all the time, such as spellings, for example. Block refers to things that do not fall naturally into the theme and as such are taught as discreet, unrelated units.

We hope that this information, coupled with the class newsletters and the planners will give you a deeper understanding of the year your child is going to have in school. It might also give you some ideas for how you can best support them.

Our half term home learning challenge!

For our home learning we have created posters about internet safety after watching the Hector's World  video below. Here are some of our posters.

Crich Tramway Museum

We had a fantastic day at Crich Tramway Museum. We saw different trams, found out about how they worked and spent time travelling on them. We spent time in the museum finding out about George Stephenson and then time in the workshop. In the tram sheds we could see where they fix the trams and found trams from different places, such as Sheffield and Blackpool.

Supertram Man came to visit us!!!!

He showed us how to keep safe on the tram and what the different parts of a tram our used for. We found out about 'teddy bear ears' and 'articulation' We then spotted all these things when we travelled on the Supertram. Thank you Supertram Man!

Thank you Mosborough Primary Group for our fantastic reading area.
