Welcome back to the start of the new school year!
I am both very excited and delighted to start my first year as a teacher at Manor School and I am really looking forward to working closely with both you and your children. I will be available after school so please feel free to come and see me if there is anything you wish to discuss.
Each term there will be a short presentation for each year group to help explain what your children will be learning this term, share the class timetable, discuss homework and answer any questions you may have. The presentation will last no more than 20 minutes and will be straight after school in your child's classroom.
To help parents who have siblings in different years, each year group will have a different after school session where ever possible.

Tuesday 18th September - Year 2
Wednesday 19th September - Year 3
Thursday 20th September - Year 4
Friday 21st September - Year 5 & 6
After the presentation, any information shared will be uploaded onto this class page.
We have had a very busy start to the school year studying our class book "How to Train Your Dragon" by Cressida Cowell. The children have been hearing about the main character Hiccup and his quest to catch and train his very own dragon. Our first English unit of the term is focused on the book and I am already surprised by the enthusiasm the children are showing in their work and when reading through each chapter of the story.
This term there will also be a weekly spelling test, this will take place on a Friday. This week we are focusing on words with 'aw' spelt augh and au.
This term the focus in our Maths lessons is place value. If you would like to see how the unit will progress the small steps are below. We will also be focusing on our times tables this year and would love it if the children could practice the weekly tables at home.
TOPIC WORK AND OTHER CURRICULUM SUBJECTS
Our first topic of the year is the Ancient Egyptians. Some of the areas we will be looking at are tombs, mummies, hieroglyphs and Egyptian Gods and Goddesses. We will also be going on a trip to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford for a very exciting Egyptian workshop, check back here and on Parent Pay for more details very soon. If you would like to do a project about Egypt at home you could choose one from the topic web bellow. If you do choose to do a project I would love to see it in school on Monday 15th of October.
Mrs Bhatti will also be teaching the children Science once a week, this term they are looking at materials starting with rocks and fossils. Curie class also have Forest school on Tuesday afternoons.
