Welcome to Longleat Class!
Term 5 2019
What a fabulous year we have had as Longleat class so far! The children have developed and grown as individuals, developing their teamwork as well as creating some amazing work. They have wowed me with their excellent representation of the school on our trip to Bath and most recently, they put on an amazing production! We are looking forward to the summer term and seeing the children continue to develop and produce good work.
We will try to take as much of our learning outside this term to make the best of the weather, so please remember to apply sun cream and ensure your child has a water bottle in school, so that they stay safe while we are outside.
Our topic this term, is called ‘Crime and Punishment through the Ages’ and we will immerse ourselves into the lives of prisoners and law enforcers from the Romans to the present day. We hope the children can get hands on during the topic and develop their problem solving skills. In English, the children will study the role of the Highwayman through Alfred Noyes’ poem. The children will write in role, create diaries as well as retelling the narrative from another characters perspective. To conclude our English topic, the children will use all that they have learnt about crime and punishment across the term to determine whether fairy-tale characters are guilty or not, through drama, debates and letter writing.
Longleat class will continue to work hard to improve their attitude to learning, their independence skills and working together to create a rich, positive and supportive environment to learning. This links nicely to our Building Learning Power theme ‘Resilience’.
Please remember to send you child to school each day with their contact book, reading books, named water bottle and PE kit. If you have any questions or concerns about your child's learning and want to find out more ways, you can support with their learning, then please do not hesitate to contact us via your child's home contact book, via our office email or in person.
Thank you for your continued support,
