Welcome to Hawkstone Class
Teacher - Mr Penfold
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Kings and Mrs Edwards
I am incredibly excited to have joined the team at The Wilfred Owen School and am thoroughly enjoying getting to know Hawkstone Class. This page will keep you up to date with our learning journey and important information.
During the school day the children will take part in a teacher led guided reading session. As well as studying non fiction texts, this half term we will be reading 'The River Sea' by Eva Ibbotson. Whilst enjoying the story we will also be honing various reading skills summed up in the acronym
Aim to hear your child read at home three times a week and consider asking questions that are linked to our VIPERS reading skills. Use the link below for a handy help sheet!
In our classroom the children have access to high quality texts that are banded and updated on a regular basis. In home school journals, myself, Mrs Edwards and Mrs Kings will set tasks for your children to complete that link to the above skills. children will also have the opportunity to read there own school reading book independently throughout the week.
In Hawkstone Class we pride ourselves on high standards of writing. We follow a writing cycle that provides the children with opportunities to write about a range of genres linked to high quality texts and cross curricular themes.
Whilst aiming to improve the fluency in a range of maths skills, children are given the chance to deepen their understanding of reasoning and problem solving skills on a regular basis. Ensure your child frequently practises their times tables at home, TT Rockstars is an engaging and fun way to do this. Can your child become a times tables rock god?
During this half term in Science we will discover states of matter and how they interact with the world around us.
Our topic this term is Raging rivers / Transport and Trade.
