Welcome to Kappa Class! Our class team are Miss Mahoney and Mr O'Neill. If you have any questions or would like to speak to us, you can contact us directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our core value for this term is Teamwork where we will be focusing on developing a co-operative approach to learning and using teamwork across all lessons and during all activities.
Homework and Reading Books
Homework will be sent home weekly on a Friday and must be returned the following Friday. Reading Books will also be sent home on a Friday and returned the following Thursday to be changed again ready for Friday. It is very important that homework is completed regularly and that reading at home takes place at least three times a week. This will help your child to make the best possible progress.
In Literacy, we will be focusing on 'Issues and Dilemmas' whilst reading ‘Mr Stink’ by David Walliams. We will also be reading and performing a variety of plays including 'The Twits' and 'BFG' play.
In Numeracy we will be solving problems around additive reasoning and geometric reasoning.
Within Geography this term, we will be focusing on accurately measuring rainfall, wind speed, temperature and noise level using a variety of different instruments to do so.
In History, we will be focusing on rounding up and comparing different centuries and decades to get a better understanding of our past.
In Science, we will learn how to record and gather data through the use of diagrams, keys and bar charts whilst ensuring we use specific and appropriate scientific language. We will also explore science through practical experiments and use the findings to draw conclusions and to make predictions.
Throughout P.E this term, we will focus on running over a long distance and sprinting in short distance. We will also learn different ways in which to throw and to find the best possible technique to use to hit specific targets.
Within Music, we will focus on the impact silence can have in a piece of music, and look at making some music (and silence) of our own.
In R.E. we will be exploring Buddhism and making links between beliefs and sources.
Our PSHE topic will revolve around our rights and responsibilities, and how to care and support others.
We will learn to open and send emails in computing.
In DT we will be learning about the design process, and creating a prototype before making a real product.

Shopping trip to Morrisons
On Tuesday 16th January, Kappa were very lucky to be able to go Shopping in Morrisons, Belle Vale. We worked in three separate groups to pick items from our shopping lists and were even able to pay for them ourselves.
