Pine

Welcome to Pine Class

Welcome to Pine Class. We have 21 pupils. Our teacher is Mr Carter and our teaching assistant is Mrs Clark.

Summer Term

This term we will head back in time to find out how the towns and cities of the UK first developed. We will learn about the needs and requirements early settlers had when choosing a place to build a home. We will look at place names around the UK to see how the Anglo-Saxons, Romans and Vikings all left their mark. Through use of digital and paper maps, we will investigate land use in different sized settlements and the ways in which settlements are linked together. At the end of the unit, we will draw together all their learning about settlements to design our own new settlement!

PE Timetable

Our PE days for this year are Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child comes to school on these days wearing the correct PE kit.

Feedback to improve our learning

We all have been involved in a dialogue about the high expectations we have of all pupils. Effective feedback involves a dialogue to identify what has been done well and the next steps to learning. Pupils are regularly given verbal feedback about their work and areas to work on. Where appropriate, we use pink highlighting to identify where we are 'Tickled Pink' that the Success Criteria (expectations set out at the start of the lesson) have been achieved. Green highlighting identifies a next step (Green for Growth). Children are also encouraged to self-edit and correct or improve something using their purple polish pen. For more information, please do ask your child, read our policy on the school website or speak to us.
