Welcome to Plum class!


Mr. Dunning, Mrs. Bradley and Miss Nicholls would like to welcome all of their children to their new classes! Im sure we are going to have lots of fun during the year and carry out some exciting activities whether it being inside the classroom or in the outdoors!


This half term, Plum class will be studying the text of The Lion Inside by Rachel Bright and Jim Field.

Our Science topic this term is Animals including humans. Please click on the image below to access some fun interactive games!




Tuesday and Thursday (As our timetable can change at any moment, we ask if you can make sure your child has a P.E. kit in school at all times!) During this half term, the childrenwill be participating in activities which will ask them to follow instructions through the use of activities such as dance. These lessons will be carried out both inide and outside of the school (weather dependant) so please prepare your child for both circumstances!

Please read your child's school reading book with them each night and update your child's Reading Record.
Your child will need to bring in their reading book and Reading Record to school each day. Rewards such as Dojos and Golden nuggets will be given to your child if they read at home! (Rewards will also be given to children if they complete any home learning activities!) In plum class, we complete daily guided reading activities which support your child's ability to read and learn new words and improve their comprehension skills. As well as completing guided reading, your child will also read with one of us in the morning! By doing this we can see who has been reading at home and change books where necessary.

Phonics and Spelling
Each day, your child will take part in fun phonics sessions. To help support their learning and progress at home, click the Phonics Games button below. Spellings are handed out every Monday and your child will be tested every Friday. In plum class, we follow the 'Look, cover, write, check' formula as we believe that this is one of the best ways for your child to learn their spellings. Please can you make every effort to support your child with learning their spellings! Not only will this aid their learning, this will also allow them to earn rewards for completeing home learning activities!
