Curriculum Information PowerPoint - Autumn 2021

As promised in the St Lawrence Post, we are now pleased to send you a link to our St Lawrence YouTube channel where you can access the Curriculum Information Presentation for your child's year group.

The Curriculum Information Presentation will be followed by a 'Get to Know You' live video session with your child's class teacher during the week beginning 18th October. Apologies that this date is slightly later than originally stated, but we need the extra time to resolve some minor technical difficulties.  This is your opportunity to have an informal chat with the teacher in a group video link, as well as being able to ask questions arising from the Curriculum Information presentation.  We ask that any questions are emailed to the class teacher direct, in advance of the 'Get to Know You' session: 


Class Update 

Year 6 Class Update

The children thoroughly enjoyed making toys from the 1940s and creating bunkers of various sizes during Forest School and they attended an excellent Armistice Day assembly at the Howard on the 11th of November.

In maths, we have continued with fractions, learning to add, subtract, multiply and divide these. 

We have been learning about the Blitz during WW2 and have planned and written setting descriptions based on these, using our senses and inspired by our class book 'Letters from the Lighthouse'.  We have created timelines based on historical research.

We are now glazing our masks and have sketched the 1940s London skyline as a basis for a silhouette against a background wash, with some stunning results!

Our 'Wow Day' is planned for Tuesday 7 December when the children can dress up as a person from the 1930s and 1940s.  The rations recipe homework set for this week will link into part of the activities for this day.

We are learning Christmas songs in music and have mastered the first phrase of a challenging glockenspiel musical piece as part of our weekly curriculum.

The children are thoroughly enjoying our French sessions with Madame Witty and they did us proud again on Tuesday, articulately showing prospective parents around the school. 

It was lovely to meet you all during our parents' evenings this week and as many parents asked to be informed about maths topics so that they can support at home, I will set up a 'Maths Topic' folder on Showbie. I will post a weekly message in there for you so that you all know what the focus for the week will be.

Please continue to read with the children at home on a daily basis and discuss new and effective vocabulary as well as examples of inference.

With best wishes

Mrs Dowsett, Mrs Lowes and Mrs Johnson
