Welcome back - Summer Term
What a fantastic first week we have had after the long Easter break. The children have all been very enthusiastic about their holidays.
The next two terms will be focussed on the topic 'Grusome Tudors.' We are very excited and are looking forward to learning lots about this time period. The children are welcome to bring any non-fiction book in from home about the Tudors so they can share it with the class.
In science, we will be learning about rocks, fossils and soils. We will be completing a few investigations with rocks and therefore would like to make our own 'pet rocks'. Please bring a rock into school that is no bigger than the palm of your hand before Thursday 2nd May, 2019.
Maths - please practice times tables daily with your child. They have access to Sumdog on iPads and laptops.
As usual, PE will be on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please make sure your child has their PE kit, a hat and water bottle with them.
Welcome to Term 3

Autumn Term 2
In Term 2 we were looking at Stone Age to Iron Age.
The start of the term went off to a terrific start with a visit from Wiltshire Wildlife Trust who kindly taught us Stone Age cooking. We had the opportunity to light fires and to cook dough over the open fire. Some of us even managed to have some popcorn which was popped on the fire. Unfortunately, our second group didnt get to have any as it all fell into the fire! The children thought this was rather funny!
Our trip to Avebury was fantastic! We all learned so much whilst on the henge and could actually hold some Stone Age items as well as look at skeletons in the Museum.
As part of our topic we spent time under the tables where we could find a variety of cave paintings. We had to work out what the messages were in the cave paintings and have a go at drawing a message to our partners. From this we then used chalk and charcoal to make our own cave paintings in pairs. These have been displayed in our old cloakroom. This was one of the best sessions we have had with all children enthusiastic and full of energy.
What an amazing term we had!
Welcome to Newton Class
Autumn Term 1 2018-2019
Well, what a busy start to our brand new term and there are many exciting things ahead of us!
Our first week started with a big boom, the children were welcomed into school with a variety of circus-based activities and The Greatest Showman soundtrack on repeat.
Our topic for the term is ‘This is me’ where we have been thinking about all the special things that make us who we are and how we work together to be a team in Newton Class. Ask us about ‘Fantastic Walking’, ‘Instant Stopping’ and ‘superb lining up’. We have also been talking about our ‘Learning Magic,’ this focusses on how our positive mind-sets help us learn.
At the end of term we will be performing the ‘This is Me’ dance (we are learning the actual moves from the movie!) and we are looking forward to showing off all our amazing learning at our Class Celebration.
Below you will find any letters and parent overviews as well as any useful information and links to websites.
