Tiger Headlines!


On Wednesday, Tiger Class celebrated History Day by focusing on World War 1.

In the morning, we got into groups and made World War 1 information sheets.

In the afternoon, we had a visit from Sam Upsall and his father. They brought in lots of objects connected to their grandfather's war experience. We even got to try on soldiers uniforms, web-packs and hold their guns.

We can't thank them enough - we had such a great time!

Tiger Topic!

This half term, our Topic is 'World War 1'.

Children will learn about the use of cavalry in war and how the cavalry became redundant when faced with the modern weapons of  the 20th Century. They will also find out about the great British invention - the Tank!

Children will discover what it was like for a soldier to experience life in the trenches by researching newspapers, photographs and film footage.

Our Topic will be linked to our class novel - 'War Horse' by Michael Morpurgo.

Core Learning Skills! 

Our Core Learning Skill is 'It’s Up To Me'. We will thinking about how our behaviour and the way we live our lives can affect other people. We will be looking at examples of other people and role-models in our society today and how the way they live their lives has a positive affect on other people. Core Learning skills are incorporated within lessons across the whole curriculum. We also use Core Learning Skills lessons to help us to realise what is important in life and help us make the correct decisions as we grow older. 


Tiger PE!

Our PE lessons are on Monday and Thursday, so please have your PE kit in school on these days. As the weather gets colder, trackies or leggings can help keep children warm. This term we will be doing Tag Rugby.


Tiger Spelling!

Tigers will get their new spellings on Monday and they will be tested on Friday. Each student will receive between 5 and 10 spellings per week. In addition, students will practise their spellings each day during a Spelling Skittles session.

Tiger Home Learning Challenges!

Each half term, Tigers receive a Home Learning Challenge.

Home Learning Challenges aim to link school learning to home learning and provide an opportunity for parents and carers to share their child's school experience by supporting learning at home.

Each Home Learning Challenge will contain a mixture of Maths, English and Topic challenges, designed to enhance each student's learning experience.

In addition, Tiger students are expected to read for a minimum of 15 minutes each day. Please aim to support your child's development of reading - reading is the gateway to all learning - research shows that the more a student reads, the more successfully they can access the whole school curriculum.
