Welcome to Tiger Class 2021-2022


Welcome back to Woodlea, we are amazed at how well the children have settled into Tiger Class. Well done to all the children for scoring 40 goals in their pentlty shoot-out for our endagered animal fundraiser. We can already tell this is going to be a brilliant year. Miss Martin is the class teacher for the Autmun term, supported by Mrs Grove.


This term in English, we will be exploring the story of the Loch Ness Monster. First, we will be working towards writing our own adventure story. Then, we will write a magazine article reporting information about a fictional character.


For Maths, we will be following the Maths No Problem scheme of work and we will begin the year by looking at counting and place value. Mental maths will also take place daily.


Our wider curriculum for the Autumn term will focus on Ancient Greece. During our Georgraphy and History lessons, we will cover the location of the country, what life was like in Ancient Greece and how Greek society has impacted on our daily life.


PE lessons will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has the correct kit (red woodlea t-shirt, plain black shorts and plain black pumps). Outdoor kit (black tracksuit top and black pants) is also encouraged. Kits will be kept in school untill half term.


Updates, letters and work will be shared via your child's SeeSaw account. Details of how to access this can be found in the back of your child's reading record. We also have a class Twitter page, please follow us: @TigerClass1
