Speedwell Summer newsletter 2nd half term

Welcome back to the Summer Term in Speedwell Class! Our topic for this term is Castles and we have lots of exciting learning opportunities planned!


Friday 20th March


The children this morning have had great fun, learning and practising lots of Maths skills, in our Maths through English morning.  We listened to some stories and enjoyed different maths activities based on the books.

As we have been so busy with our Maths work, we have not had the chance to carry out our Spelling Tests today.  Therefore, we have decided to carry last week's spellings over to next week, so the children have an extra week to learn them.  The spelling test will now be Friday 27th March.

This week we have been learning about Louis Braille.  We have worked hard on researching him and here are some of the facts we found out about him:

*He was born in 1809 and lived in France.

*He became blind at the age of 3 when he hurt his eye with a sharp tool.

*He developed a method of writing for blind people, using raised dots.

*The braille writing  only began to be used 2 years after Louis Braille died.

*He died of tuberculosis in 1852.


What other facts did you learn?

Spring term 2015

Welcome back to a new term in Speedwell Class. This term we will be learning about Real Superheroes and finding out about people who help us, as well as how we can look after ourselves.

Wednesday 7th January

Today we have been thinking about questions we could ask to find out more about Real Superheroes. These are some of the questions we came up with:

   * Why do you wear a uniform?

   * How do you help people?

   * Why does she wear a watch?

   * Where do you work?

   * Why do you have a walkie-talkie?

   * Why do you help people?

We will be finding out the answers to all of our questions in the next couple of weeks.
