In this class your teacher is Mrs Sanderson and your learning support assistants are Miss O'Brien, Mrs Lane, Miss Alloway, Miss Harris, Mrs Stephens and Miss Whitely.

This term we will be exploring Humanities. Our inquiry question is 'Why is Barry brilliant?'. We will be looking at the many different features of Barry. We will become historians and explore the wonderful History of the town and our famous docks. We will look at the many businesses in Barry and particularly focus on the small family run businesses. We will look at the different job opportunities in Barry and explore our ambitions for the future. 

This year we will also be developing our ICT skills.

Important information

PE days are Mondays and take place fortnightly. Children can wear PE clothes to school on these days - tracksuit, t-shirt, sweatshirt and trainers.  

Reading folders: Pupil reading folders should be brought to school on a daily basis.  Please remember to read each week with your child to help support their language development and general literacy skills. Reading weekly with your child is one of the home learning activities encouraged by the school. Once your child has read their book 3 times, the class teacher will change it. 

Snack: A healthy snack will be provided by the school for your child. 

Drinks: We encourage parents to provide their child with additional water which they can drink throughout the day if they require it.  We ask that only still unflavoured water is provided.
