Welcome to Fir Class!
The Fir Class Team
Teaching in the Fir class this year is Mr Cosford, Louise and Sadia.
PPA will be covered by Sadia on a Wednesday afternoon.
If you need to speak to Mr Cosford please feel free to arrange a virtual meet via e-mail.
In these strange times please may I ask that you keep an eye on Parent Mail and Class Dojo for any updates regarding school.
Thank you in advance.

Our value this term is Honesty.
This week our P4C question is…
Is it always good to be honest?
Why or why not?
Here is the new homework grid. If work could be done at home and then sent to us via Class Dojo, that would be great as there are no Homework Books this year.
One piece of homework needs to be completed each week and this needs to be sent to Mr Cosford. As per the school’s policy on homework.
Thank you to all those who have handed in homework this week. Some fantastic pieces have been presented. They have been placed on our working walls.
What we are up to this term.
Term 5 hopes to be an interesting and enjoyable term for Fir Class.
The new value for the term is Appreciation. The children will have weekly P4C sessions that are linked to honesty and various other topics. The aim will be to develop their ability to ask and respond to questions in ever-growing detail.
All Information about this half term’s teaching will be contained within the Curriculum Web, which is attached to this page via the link above.
Our topic this term will be ‘Whatever the Weather’. We will be looking into the weather and how it plays a huge part in our lives. This will be the main geography element of the terms topic. The children will study different weather patterns and look into why certain weather is more prevalent in certain parts of the world. In science, we will be focussing on plants. There will be a focus on the parts of plants and trees, observing plants and trees and maintain a plant. The investigation for the unit will be on growing a plant from a seed using different methods.
Our core story this term is the Avocado Baby

Reading records can be brought back in daily or weekly. The aim is to read at least 5 times a week. When we have the reading records in we will collate how much the children have read and if they read 5 times a week for 3 weeks there will be a small prize given. They are of course encouraged to read as much as possible.
PE will be on Tuesday afternoons. The children will need to come into school in their PE kit. The school PE kit consists of a white or red t-shirt (plain is fine), black or blue shorts/tackies and suitable trainers (preferably not pumps this year as they will spend the whole day in their PE kits and they will need more support on their feet. When it gets colder outside more layers will be needed to keep them warm.
