Welcome to Term 1 at Aycliffe Community Primary School!  We are very excited to welcome all children and parents to Class 1 (Les Peches). 

Below is an outline of learning and development for Class 2, ‘Les Fraises’, in Year 1 for Term 1. You are welcome to speak to me if you have any further questions.

Below is an outline of learning and development for Class 4 (Les Ananas) this term. As always, please speak to me if you have any further questions.

English Y4

In English this term Year 4 will be learning about traditional tales.  We are starting with the popular tale of the Snow Queen.  Our learning will involve creating our own version of the story after we have studied the features within the text.

We will be looking at character description, lengthening sentences and using powerful vocabulary to show a mature style of writing.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the class teacher for Les Poires, which is a mixture of children from Years 5 and 6. Change can be an uncomfortable experience at any stage in life so it would not be unusual if some of the children were a little unsettled this week. If any parents would like to meet me to discuss their child’s Learning or Behaviour or just to put a face to a name please feel free to contact me via the school office and we can arrange a mutually convenient time.
