Class Timetable

Autumn Term

It has been lovely coming up to the juniors with Zircon class! They have settled well into their new routines and are working hard to achieve.


In Maths, we have completed our unit on place value, moving swiftly onto addition and subtraction. The children are practising their x2, x3, x4 and x10 times tables! Soon, we’ll be including our eight times tables, so we build up our knowledge of the tables known by-heart.


In English, we have used our history topic, The Stone Age as part of our inspiration for stories. We have used The Croods as a base for adventure stories and have also been reading Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura.


For Science, we have looked at the different types of rocks and fossils and have focussed in R.E. on learning about the Hindu religion.

In PSHE, we have started a new programme called DotCom, with the class loved meeting the characters and learning about people in our community who can help us.

In Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) we have started learning about basic French greetings, saying hello and goodbye in French (bonjour / au revoir) and also asking how people are.
