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.

 

Apollo class have really been making the most of the lovely weather.We ended last week with a fantastic outdoor maths lesson in which we collected some natural items and made a picture from them. We then decided what each material was worth and worked out as a group a total for what our whole picture was worth. After we had done this, we moved around and tried to work out the value of the other groups pictures. 

On Monday we walked to the top of Lake Avenue and sketched the view from two perspectives; The rolling fields and the housing development. 
Back at school we looked at the story Window by Jennie Baker and had a great deal of engaging discussion about the positives and negatives of housing developments. 

Our Show rehearsals are coming along well. Thank you to those who have returned slips detailing your child's involvement.

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?
