Welcome to Apollo!
In Apollo, we are learning to be a little bit better each day. Mistakes are good... if we aren't making mistakes, then we are doing things we already know! If we are pushing ourselves to learn more, then we should be making mistakes as we test ourselves and experiment with new strategies and techniques.
We enjoy being a class and supporting others as we grow and learn.
This term, our topic is 'The Living World' . In geography, we are learning about the world around us and comparing the local area with an area in Europe (Greece) and one in South America (Brazil). In Science, we are focusing on Biology and learning about animals, including humans and living things and their habitats. In literacy, we have been focusing on persuasive writing and will produce a wonderful travel brochure full of wonderful descriptions of exotic places we want to travel to. Whilst in maths, we are mastering our knowledge of number, and the four basic operations.
Every week, Mrs Carter shares her love of music; Mrs Thompson, her passion for art, and we love the way Mrs Rees helps us learn French, test our spelling and times tables, and we sing along with her to the times tables songs. It would really help us if you could help us practice our times tables too because next year, we will be the first Year 6 who will be tested on them.
We are working hard on our handwriting so please help us practice at home. Of course we are reading and learning to ask questions to help us understand what we read. You could ask us about what we read as well as listening to us reading.
We love welcoming people to our classroom, so pop in and let us share our love of learning.
