Amber Class

Welcome to Amber Class

Autumn 2

Here in Amber Class we are kind, caring and hard working. We always put 100% effort into everything that we do.  If somebody needed help or was upset I know that one of the lovely children in Amber class would help them and make them feel better.

In maths we are learning to be able to multiple and divide any 3-digit number up to 1,000. We are learning our 2,3,4,5,8,10 timetables to help us and soon will be going onto our 6,7, and 9.

In English we are practicing story writing. We will tell the story of the Stig of the Dump and then retell the story making it our own. We will be using adjectives, conjunctions, adverbs and prepositions to make our writing more exciting and enjoyable to read. We will learn how to plan our stories and understand why it is helpful to do this.

As a class we will be reading Stig of dump in guided reading. The children will answer a series of questions throughout the story checking for their understanding of what is going on. Along with using drama and other ways the children can communicate the events in the story and how they feel about it.

In science the children will get to learn about forces and magnets. Identifying, setting up tests, drawing and understanding what they are.

Our Autumn topic covers children being able to learn about the destructive powers of nature, from volcanoes and earthquakes to tsunamis and tornadoes. Through discussion and practical tasks, children will learn about how and why these natural disasters occur, and the ways in which they affect people and the environment.  The children will also be starting their linguistic journey into the French Language over the year.

For Harvest the class used their amazing art skills to recreate Giuseppe Arcimboldo famous portrait which uses fruit and vegetables. The children learnt about what harvest is and why we still celebrate it today.
