Welcome to Rivers Class.
Autumn Term 2019.
Wow! What a busy start to the year !
Our topic this half term is 'Grand Designs'. We have been looking at all manner of inventions and inventions! Comparing inventions with from past to modern inventions. We've been fascinated to find that some of things we take for granted such as iPhones are variations of inventions that came about last century!
House keeping :
All the children will be bringing home “Learning Logs”. These are open ended research activities for the children to complete over the following week Monday to Monday. Activities will be Literacy and Topic based to further consolidate learning that is taking place in class. Additional, differentiated Maths activities will be sent home when appropriate to support your child’s learning.
Children will be issued with spelling lists for testing on the following Monday. Whilst children will have opportunities to learn their spellings at school, it is important that they practise at home.
PE is scheduled for Monday. This term, we will focus on hockey skills and drills.
Please could you ensure your child brings full kit to school – including footwear. PE kit may be left on pegs in the cloakroom.
Could we ask that children bring their reading books to school daily. Regular reading practice is essential for every child’s progress and we very much appreciate your support in this. As a reminder, we would expect your child to read at least 4/5 times per week. Your child will either have a reading scheme book and/or school library book to read from, or their own choice from home or a public library.
Please encourage your child to bring their Reading Record to school every day and please sign or comment on their progress.
Happy New Year! I hope you all had an enjoyable and relaxing Christmas. My name is Mr Thomas and I will be the new teacher of class Elm. I am looking forward to my new role at Llancarfan Primary and working closely with the children and yourselves. I am a very keen sportsman and currently play for a semi-professional rugby team in the Welsh premiership.
If you have any further questions or would like to find out more information regarding aspects of school life, please do not hesitate to contact me at the end of the school day.
We are looking forward to starting out new topic called Superheroes!

At the heart of this project children will write narrative and fantasy stories using a comic and storyboard format and develop additional skills in the use of speech marks and captions.
In this project the children will learn to:
