Welcome to Pine Class!

Miss Dalton is the teacher in Pine Class with Years 4 and 5. We are very lucky to have Mrs Granger helping us in the mornings.

 

We have new and exciting topics every half term which we work through in a cross curricular style. Please see the curriculum maps on the school website to find out more.

 

Weekly homework will consist of spellings (every Friday), times tables and at least three home reading sessions. Pine Class have PE twice a week and should come into school in their kit on Mondays and Fridays.

Welcome back Pine Class!

 

I hope you have all had a really wonderful half term!

 

I miss you all very much and it has made me so happy to see what you have all been up to. Lauren and Maisie have both been spending lots of time in their paddling pools, Angelina has been incredibly kind and sold some of her old toys to raise money for the NHS and James has got a very very cute new rescue kitten! Thank you so much to all of you who wished me a happy birthday - it would have been a lot of fun to spend it with all of you but I had a really lovely day. You made me feel very special and I can't believe how lucky I am to have such incredible children in my class! 

 

Keep working hard, you are doing such an amazing job! I couldn't be prouder of you all.

Make sure you're having lots of fun and spending lots of time outside too. Enjoy all the lovely sunshine.

 

Speak soon, keep smiling!

Love from Miss Dalton
