Read an article from the First News and then record yourself using seesaw telling me what the article was about and why you enjoyed reading the article?  What have you learnt? 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Contact me

If you have any queries about your child's work, please feel free to contact me through this contact form and I will respond as soon as I can. Don't forget that seesaw can also be used to send and receive messages as well. Mrs Hodges

Every week I will upload a copy of the children's newspaper First News.  The children have this in the class every week and enjoy keeping up to date with the weekly news. 


Enjoy reading 

First news 20th to 26th March

Please remember that children can complete the work pack that we sent home over the next two weeks. If they would like to show me their work then feel free to upload to their seesaw account.


We have sent out their home log in details to all parents via see saw.


If you have any questions about the activities, again contact me through seesaw. All of the work given, the children have been taught the skills in class this term.


Just to let you know also that 'The body coach' is doing a 30 minute fitness activity for children every morning on Youtube and Techniquest is showing live experiments every day on their facebook page at 12 noon.


I have also provided a list of websites that your children may wish to use.  I will continue to add to this. 


Take care and stay safe Mrs Hodges

               Spring Term 2020


Happy new year to all our parents.


Last term the children raised £36 for the Noah's Ark Charity.  Thank you to everyone who supported our class at the Christmas fete.


This term our topic is all about the beautiful country in which we live - Wales.  The focus for our class is 'The Brecon Beacons'.


In LLC lessons the children will be reading the story 'The Seventh Seal' and writing their own creative stories.  They will also be producing non-chronological reports.


During the topic lessons the children have decided that they want to create their own countryside code and then rap it. They also want to plan a holiday for a family to Brecon.

The class will have PE every Wednesday and will need to bring in a PE kit on a weekly basis.  Homework will be handed out on a Thursday with reading books and will need to be returned on the following Monday. 


As part of the homework the class will be expected to learn a times table.  On a Friday a new spelling list will be provided and these will be tested the following Friday.


£1 per week for fruit tuck.
