St Teresa

Welcome to Saint Teresa’s Class Page!

Teacher – Miss Crisp
Teaching Assistants - Miss Busby

Here in Saint Teresa’s class we start every day with Guided Reading. We would be ever so thankful if any parents could kindly come in and hear us read (we love showing off how good we are!). Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you are able to help for 20 – 30 minutes any morning.

Key Reminders:

  • Saint Teresa’s homework will be set on a Friday, this will include: Spellings (green book) – These will need to be practised at home ready for a test every Thursday. Alongside grammar, math or topic based work. This all needs to be completed and handed back in on the following Wednesday.
  • PE will take place on a Friday afternoons, please ensure your child comes to school in their kit. This includes trainers, a house colour top and navy/black shorts.
  • Reading at home is a real passion for Miss Crisp. We would love all of the children within Saint Teresa’s class to read 5 times per week to an adult outside of school (it would be fantastic if you are able to document this in the children’s yellow reading diaries). Both myself and the class teaching assistants will keep a close eye on this (Monday – Monday) and any children fulfilling this task will be rewarded with a stamp towards their reading awards.
  • Our weekly mile is scheduled to take place every Wednesday, so make sure you're ready to take part, enjoy and increase your fitness! 
 
Theme Related – Earth and Space!
 

Our exciting curriculum journey will now take all of us within Saint Teresa’s class to outer space, where we will be delving into lots of learning surrounding Earth and Space! We are going to be scientists as we explore our galaxy and broaden our space knowledge. When acting as scientists, we will be discovering lots of new information about a variety of topics, including…

  • The movement of the Earth and other planets, relative to the sun
  • Describing the movement of the Moon relative to Earth
  • Describing the Sun, Earth and Moon as approximately spherical bodies
  • Using the idea of the Earth’s rotation to explain day and night and the apparent movement of the sun across the sky.
  • Explaining that unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity acting between the Earth and the falling object.
