Welcome to 'Goodall Class'. We are named after the inspirational scientist Dr. Jane Goodall, who has dedicated her life to animal conservation, and in particular the plight of chimpanzees.
I am Ms Edwards, Goodall class teacher, and I am supported by Mrs Pascoe and Mrs Champion, our fabulous TAs.
Our P.E. day is Tuesday and as usual the children will need to come to school in their P.E. kits.
Homework will be sent home on Friday. Children will have spellings to learn and a times tables travels sheet. It would be great if children could practise their spellings and times tables travels throughout the week. If you can ask your children to spell words or recall tables – that would help! Spelling tests are on Friday and Times Tables Travels tests are on Wednesday. Children will also have a library book to read at home. It would be great if you could hear your child read regularly and write in their reading diary. The children will have weekly 'project' homework, which will cover a different topic each week. I look forward to receiving the projects they create.
Our Geography topic this Summer Term is Mountains, Volcanoes and Earthquakes' and we are reading 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' by Phillip Pullman.
Remember, if you have any concerns or questions, I am always happy to talk to you at the end of the school day. You can also call or contact me on our class email address:
