Hello and welcome to St. Francis class page!
My name is Mrs Longbottom and I teach St. Francis class. Mrs Valentine, our teaching assistant and learning mentor, supports the class with me.
We have PE on Monday and Thursday. Please refer to the letter from Mr Oldfield, our PE leader, regarding appropraite clothing on each day.
Your child will have dedicated reading days, but please try to keep your child's reading books in their book bag every day.
Homework is given out on Fridays to be brought back on the following Wednesday. Homework will alternate between Maths and English. Please can you support your child at home and encourage them to discuss their learning.
Mrs Longbottom and Mrs Valentine.
What have we been learning?
The children were really excited to write their own diary entries as Percy the Park Keeper. They added in all the writing features that we have been learning in class and then wrote it up in best for our display.
The children are enjoying using practical resources in maths lessons. This has helped to embed their knowledge and understanding of place value.
Our school trip to Pudsey Park was very successful and the children gained a lot of knowledge about the human and physical features in our local environment. We have then had a lot of fun making a large scale model of the park.
This term in PE we are learning about gymnastics.and developing our balancing skills.
