Fletching CE Primary School

Grasshopper Class

Welcome to Grasshopper Class!

Our school value this term is 'Resilience'.

This term, our topic focus is 'to discover'. 

We have linked this to our project on

Ancient Greeks.

Below is our enquiry question linked to this topic.

 What have the Greeks done for us?

 

Above is our overarching enquiry question which is fed into everything we do with our learning about the Ancient Greeks. It is an 'ungoogleable' question where children make predictions and justify their reasons. It links with our Dreams and Goals, our school values and the project we are exploring this term.

The children can develop their learning by branching out from the 'project' and setting their learning on a different path. They may find that they might come away from learning about the Ancient Greeks and onto something completely different that really interests them. It is going to be interesting to see where their learning takes them.

Times tables – We are using Times table Rockstars to practise our tables. The children have be given their unique logins. Times Table Rockstars.

The 99 Club - The children will also have a multiplication activity to complete each week.

The 99 Club is a mental-oral starter at Bosbury School which aims to raise standards in maths through encouraging pupils to improve their mental calculations when attempting quick-fire multiplication and division problems.

The idea is that with repeated practice, the scheme should result in increased speed and confidence when tackling mental maths problems without relying on written workings and methods.

All pupils will begin at the 11 Club and work their way up, having one opportunity (Tuesdays) per week during the start of one of their maths lessons to answer all calculations at their current level unaided and within the allotted time of five minutes. 

If all of the calculations are answered correctly twice in a row, the child moves up to the next level!
