Falcons

Welcome to Falcons
 
Welcome to Falcons Class web page. 
 
Mr Jowett and Mrs Dorrington are always available to speak to and answer your questions. You will find us on the playground at the beginning of the day. Please say hello when you drop off your child.
 
We are looking forward to a busy and rewarding term.
All the children have a written timetable which they can share with you. It is to remind them how each day flows!
 
We will check the children's Learning Diaries each Tuesday morning. Please make sure they have these and that they have read 5 times a week. It really makes a difference to the children's reading and comprehension skills.
 
PE kit should be in school each day and they will need their swimming kit and towel on Tuesdays.
 
Spellings are tested on Fridays and new spellings are given out for the following week. Please remind the children to bring their spelling books to school on a Friday. 
 
Please speak to us if there is anything else we can help with.

Stone Age Cave Paintings
 
This week we have begun to find out how the ancient people of the Stone Age recorded their lives as amazing paintings found in caves in England and France. 
We then use natural earthy colours to creat our own paintings which reflect our lives today. Can you work out what we are doing in our paintings?
