Welcome to Neil Armstrong Class! 



Miss Clarke, Mrs Bye and Mrs O'Rawe

This term we are studying....

The Romans 

Our Autumn term big question is:

Do we look after the Earth, or does the Earth look after us?

Preparation Homework

Preparation homework will enable the children to start their lessons with some knowledge before we begin. This should allow them to progress further and quicker in lessons.

One piece of Maths homework and one piece of English homework will be set weekly. Homework will be given via this page and should be completed in their purple homework books. The children should try a few questions from each section before checking their learning and moving on to the next. For sheets with stars in the top left-hand corner of the page, the children should choose a sheet to complete. The answers are provided at the end of the sheets; the children should check their learning, as they do in school. 

This will be set on a Monday and will be due in on the following Monday.



New spelling scheme for September 2019. Spellings will be given out on a Monday and tested two weeks later. 



Children should be reading 3 pages per night of their reading book and completing their Accelerated Reading test when they have completed their book.


T.T. Rockstars

The children should use the T.T. Rockstars programme to practice their time tables regularly. 


Lucky Listener

Some weeks, we may have Lucky Listener. Lucky listener consists of the children reading a chapter to as many people as possible and getting them to sign the chapter. The children will receive a House Point for every signature they receive.  


Our PE lessons will be on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Please remember earrings are not allowed to be worn during PE lessons.

Our new PE tracksuit can now be ordered from Penn Sports.
