Welcome to the Falcons class page. I am Miss Harcourt the class teacher and your teaching assistant is the lovely Mrs Down. On a Wednesday the class with be taught by the smashing Mrs Turner. On a Thursday afternoon, the class will be taught P.S.H.E. by Mr Lancaster, R.E by Miss Clift and Yoga.
Homework will be set on Friday and we expect it to be handed in on Wednesday, which gives the children plenty of time to complete it. If children have any queries regarding their homework this gives them Monday and Tuesday to seek help. Children will be working on their times tables by completing their passport sheets and have a piece of SPaG work.
P.E. will be on a Monday with myself and on a Thursday with the Yoga Instructor. Please ensure children have their P.E. kits (including their Knowle Primary house t-shirt) in school. Please also remember plimsolls or trainers!
Our topic this term is Eden Adventure, where we will be learning all about World War Two. The pupils will be learning and writing stories about various biomes (in North and South America) and will have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of these biomes and their animal inhabitants. The pupils are enthusiastic about this topic and I know that many have already shown much interest in our 'Artist in Focus' - Frida Kahlo. We look forward to the children gaining a deeper understanding of the rainforest with a visit to Cornwall's Eden Project, where they will also have the opportunity to complete some drawings of rainforest plants and flowers to be used in the Frida Kahlo inspired self portraits.
Falcons have had a great start to the Spring term, already earning lots of Blue Sky moments! We have come back strong with children sharing expert knowledge and skills across the year groups, with many children 'flying' in their Times Tables! Well done Falcons.
If you have any questions please come and see me before or after school and I will be more than happy to help!
