Mr Almeida




In our class we have a total of 30 children, all eager to see what this year brings us. This year we have a huge focus on independence and Mr Almeida will be helping us to become the best children we can be! 



This term our theme for our topic is Transport and Trade. We will be looking through history finding out what different resources were traded with a focus on what means of travel was used to accomplish this. We will focus on the Indus Valley civilisation, delving deep into how they managed to trade without the use of any currencies!


Planners will be checked on a Friday so please feel free to leave a note if you wish. The homework this term will be on Mymaths, TTrockstars, SPaG, Spelling Shed and Reading. Spellings will need to be completed weekly, while the others will be every other week (Children will note down in their planners what homework they will be completing in advance). 


PE kits will need to be in school for Mondays (Indoor) and Thursdays (Outdoor). 


Every 3 weeks both Japan and Germany class will be going head to head in a Times Table Rockstar's competition. Children must use their times table knowledge to score points and compete to be the winning class!


Each week everyone will be given a list of 10 spellings, following a set rule, and these will be tested the following week (usually on the Friday). As a challenge, you could also learn 3 extra words that follow the same rule and spell them correctly for 1 merit! You can practice your spellings using your Spelling Shed login, where the spelling list will added for you to play the game to earn lots of points (points makes prizes).



If you wish to follow what Japan class get up to throughout the year then please make your way to our Class Dojo webpage. If you don't have access, please contact me and I will get your login information to you.


Thank you for visiting!
