Welcome to the Koala Family!

Our Teacher is Mrs Risk and our 1:1 assistants are Mrs Martin and Miss White.

We're looking forward to a wonderful year!

Some important notes:

  • Our Music lesson is on Friday
  • Our PE lessons are on Thursday and Friday
  • Maths and English Home Learning goes out on alternate Fridays and is due back on the following Tuesday.

Parents: Please try to read at home with your child every night, even for just 5-10minutes and then sign their home reading record. Each child is expected to read at least 3 times a week at home and this should be signed.

It really does make a massive difference!

 

Australian Bush Fire Fundraising

Five children from TPS School Council did a presentation for Years 2 - 6 today to help raise awareness for Australia's plight. The children shared facts, photos and fundraising ideas and all spoke eloquently. Over the next couple of weeks Townfield will be holding a variety of fundraising activities and, as always, we are grateful for your support in making these activities a huge success. Thak you in advance for this worthwile cause.

WW2 Entry Point Day: Evacuee Day

Today the Koala family relived what it was like to be an evacuee during WW2. They considered what they would pack in their suitcase, listened to letters from evacuees to their families, discussed what it takes to be a model citizen, had a P4C session and all were evacuated from their class for a short time when the sir raid siren sounded. They all showed empathy with evacuees and  their families and were able to discuss and express their feelings.

Year 5/6 spellings

We're becoming masters of finding the spelling patterns and using root words, suffixes and prefixes to get them memorised. 

Fancy a challenge? How many of the Year 5 and Year 6 common exception words can you master by the end of the year?

Trip to the British Music Museum - Liverpool

On the 15th October this Year the Koala and Kodiak Bears were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to visit the British Music Experience and the Liverpool Museum. This was the Entry Point Day for Liverpool our Liverpool topic. At The British Museum Experience the children were given the opportunity to explore the life and rise of The Beatles and history of British Rock and Pop. The trip also included a visit to the Liverpool Museum and a walk along the waterfront.

English

In English, we have been investigating The London Eye Mystery (linked with The Power of Reading). We have made inferences, justified our opinions, written a character description, a letter and have just completed a Newspaper Report. We are all very excited as we are moving onto King Kong this week (linked to Literacy Counts).

At the beginning of the term we were set the challenge of completing Time Tables Rock Stars. It’s getting very competitive as we strive to beat our time and score in order to upgrade our personal avatar!  Who will be a Rock Hero first?

In Science, we spent the first term learning about Space and part of this was to create our own Space model. Well done to all as they were amazing. We are now investigating materials and their properties.   Can you identify a product that is oobleck?
