Welcome to Apollo

ApolloApolloWelcome to Apollo class!

In Apollo Class this year, you will find Mrs Donald on a Monday and Tuesday, Mrs Meeks on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Mr Palmer, who will teach PE on Monday afternoons and support with learning in the classroom on a Wednesday morning and Mrs Evans, who works in Apollo from Monday to Thursday.

 

This week, although we have only been here a short while, we have packed lots into our time!

We have been learning about shape poems and are working on our own spring shape poems using lots of description, similes and alliteration.

In Science, we have been discussing things which are living, non-living and have never lived. We know if something is living if it, grows, eats, reproduces, breathes (respires) and gets rid of what it doesn’t need (excretion!!)

In maths we have recapped on learning about fractions. We shaded the correct part of a shape.

In response to some of the discussion we had at parent consultation, we wanted to clarify, that if your child brings home a book from their independent choice section, or from the library that they are not enjoying, please bring it back and change it for something else that they may prefer.

How you can help!

  • PE days are Monday afternoon and Wednesday morning. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school (clearly labelled) and remove any earrings.
  • Homework is due on a Monday. It is the children’s responsibility to make sure that their homework is completed every week and placed into the homework box on a Monday morning in order for it to be marked.
  • Spelling tests are on a Monday morning and the following week’s spellings will be handed out on the same day.

Home Learning

Here are some activities that you can do at home:

  • Keep practising our ‘Harvest Samba’ song

  • This week we have been trying really hard to extend our sentences and make them a little bit longer. Can you practise writing sentences using conjunctions? Conjunctions are words that join sentences together like ‘and’, ‘because’, ‘but’ and ‘so’.
  • Here is a useful website to help practise spellings each week. Spell Zone has a range of games which link to the children’s spelling rule for each week. Why don’t you try the word search or have a go at the bouncing anagrams?
