Cedar Class

Autumn Term Information

Dear Parents,

I hope you have all had a good summer. My name is Miss Steadman and I will be the Cedar class teacher this year. In the mornings, Miss Simpson will also be in our class.

This term our Topic will be ‘Animals including humans’ and we will be looking at different types of animals in Science. In Geography we will be looking at ‘Hot and Cold Areas’ and in History we will be looking at ‘The Great Fire of London‘.

In English our fiction story will be ‘The Secret of Black Rock‘.

In Maths we are starting by looking at numbers and our understanding of numbers. We will then be focussing on ‘addition and subtraction‘, including number bonds to 10.

In RE the children will learn about Christianity.

In PSHE the children will be looking at right conduct and good behaviour, as well as focusing on the school rules Ready, Respectful, Safe. Also, we will explore how to work and play effectively with others and friendships.

PE will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please send your child in in their school uniform. We recommend bringing in your child’s PE kit on a Monday and taking it home on a Friday so if they need it at any point in the week extra it is already at school. Please make sure that all PE kit is named.

Homework will be sent home on a Monday and needs to be returned and completed to a good standard, on the Friday of the same week. Homework will consist of either an English or Maths piece plus some spellings that must be learnt each week ready for a spelling test on Friday. Please do support your child with their homework, especially their spellings, as this will help their learning enormously (but please don’t do it for them!).

Please also regularly read with your child at home. Your child will be given a reading record for you to write in when you have read with your child, plus a book from school (please keep this safe and return to school), but feel free to read other books from home or the library in Winsford as well. If you have any problems or concerns with reading with your child then please do let us know.

Each day your child needs to bring in:

  • Their book bag
  • Reading record and book
  • Water bottle

We hope that this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to come and speak to us if you need any more information or have any questions.

Many thanks,

Miss Steadman and Miss Simpson.
