Welcome to Pear Tree Class.
Our names are Mrs Sorensen and Mrs Harkin-Perry. We are your child’s teachers for this academic year.
Our theme for the Spring Term is ‘Amazing Asia.’
As Geographers we will become explorers by travelling to Asia and learning about the country China. We will be comparing our home town of North Walsham to the capital city of Beijing.
As Historians we will be learning about the history of India and culture and taking a closer look at the landmarks that can be found in this fascinating country.
As scientists we will explore different materials and use our findings to help us construct our Asian boats. We will also be classifying animals you would find in Asia.
As artists we will study Chinese blossom paintings and create our own chalk and paint pictures to hang in our local community to celebrate our learning.
Alongside our main learning theme, we will be continuing with our Spanish, PSHE, RSHE, online safety, Maths mastery and PE lessons.
Our Mornings will continue with phonics, English and Maths and collective assemblies on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Reading books will be changed every Monday. Please ensure reading books and reading records are in your child’s book bag every day.
The expectation for Key Stage 1 is that your child reads four times a week.
You will find homework in Home Learning books. Homework will be given out on a Friday and collected on a Wednesday. Please ensure your child brings their home learning book to school on this day.
Important change to P.E:
PE days in Pear Tree Class are Monday and Friday. From Monday 15th January 2024, please ensure your child comes into school wearing their PE kit on their designated PE days. As it is quite cold, please ensure children wear their school jumper or cardigan and joggers to keep their legs warm with their PE shorts underneath. Please ensure hair is tied back and earrings are removed.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the Early Phase Team.
