Weekly Class Letter 18th September 2020
This week the children have been working very hard on all areas of the curriculum as well as finishing off our last
During Literacy sessions they have been writing about their own fears and have started to put together a scrapbook
page about their fear using their writing, pictures and some collage materials.
In Numeracy sessions the children have completed more work on place value, as well as starting some basic arithmetic work
on addition with 2,3 or 4 digit numbers. They have also completed a weekly mental arithmetic test at their own level and times
This week in topic sessions we have used the children's amazing research homework from last week, to make
some Italy posters and have also completed a map of Italy. The children also enjoyed looking at some Roman pictures and an
actual Roman ring and brooch brought in by Freya. Big thank you to Freya and family!
During our PE session on Tuesday, the children enjoyed practising different athletic activities and then we started to measure
their achievements and to record them on their Roman Soldier record cards.
I really enjoyed reading all of the children's homework from last week. We will be having a board in the classroom where we
can display great pieces of homework each week.
For their homework this week, please could your child:-
1. Complete the addition sums on the worksheet which I will email to you on Friday. I haven't put the worksheets on this
webpage as the children are all working at different levels in this subject.
Please email their finished work back to me by next Wednesday 23rd Sept. so I can mark it.
2. Learn the spellings they have been given for a test next Friday.
3. Read at least one book to you. It can be their own book or one from the MYon system.
Many thanks. Mrs Armstrong
Welcome To Langwith Class
I look forward to working with you this year to help your child with the next stage of their learning journey. We are very lucky
this year to also have Mrs Moss, Miss Tindall, Miss Kennerley and Mrs Walls working in Langwith Class at different times
during the week.
I have written the work we hope to cover this half term on a separate sheet below, but our main class topic for this half
term is called 'I am a Warrior' and will focus on Roman and Celtic warriors.
Our PE session for this half term will take place on the field on a Tuesday [weather permitting!] and will be a games session
or PE connected to our topic. Please could your child bring their PE in on a Tuesday. As our coat peg stand has not yet
arrived, I will send their PE kit back home at the end of the day until further notice. They can bring a tracksuit [joggers and a
sweatshirt] and will need a pair of trainers.
We want to get the children out to break as often as possible, so please make sure that your child has a pair of wellies which
they can keep in school and use when needed.
Your child's homework will be sent to you by email on Friday and needs to be sent back to me by email by the following
Your child will be given a paper list of spellings on a Friday to learn for a test on the following Friday. We do not need the
spelling list back. Please practise the spellings at home. The spelling cards have all been updated by Mrs Coleman and the
levels changed, so you may find that the list of words contains some words that your child has previously learnt.
Every 2 weeks your child will have a Times Tables test on a Friday, so please keep practising their times tables on the Times
Your child will have a reading book which they will keep in school to read during the week. Although we are not sending any
books home at present, your child needs to read as often as possible with you using their own books or books on the MYON
system. When your child has read a book, please log on to the Accelerated reader system to register the book.
All general information and weekly class letters will be added to this web page on a Friday, so please check it each week so
you know what is going on. We will also 'Tweet' photos of interesting things which we are doing in class.
It is important that we work together to help your child to make progress, so please do not hesitate to contact me by email or
phone if you have any concerns.
