Welcome to Van Gogh Class


Our teacher is Mr Jackson and our TA is Mrs Rochford.  Mrs Jones also teaches the class Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling every Thursday morning and fun creative learning on Thursday afternoon. On alternate Fridays, Mrs Jones will also be our teacher.


This term, we are finishing our class book Love that dog written by Sharon Creech and linking much of our learning to the characters and setting in the book. We have already written playscripts and letters home to parents. We will be reciting our own poetry based on the book in our class assembly on Thursday the 26th of January.Soon we will begin our Brunel topic with a grand themed opening day. Look out for further updates.

In science this term, we have been investigating healthy lifestyles and will write persuasive leaflets to convince others to look after their health.


 Homework this year will be handed out on Monday, Thursday and Friday. The Monday homework is RM Easimaths / My Maths. RM Easimaths is a personalised learning system that will cover a range of mathematical concepts. Please do not be alarmed if your child has a low score as the software will revisit the area to allow for reinforcement of learning. My Maths will remain based around the area of learning covered that week. All activities should be able to be carried out independently. Spellings lists have been handed out for the term last week.

On Tuesday 4th October Class Van Gogh had a dress up day for their topic California. All the children dressed up as a film character of their choice. The children then did hot seating on their characters. Even their homework was Hollywood themed as they had to research about their character.
