Welcome to Gold Class


On Tuesday 19th March Gold Class walked to Pets at Home to learn about pet care.

While we were there we looked at the fish. When we returned we set up the fish tank and left it for 24 hours.

On Thursday 21st March Mrs Weatherley collected our new class pets - Charlie, Lola, Lilly and Lloyd. They are Platy's!

We send a big Thank You to Pets at Home for letting us have them.

Gold Class are making good progress with their Danecourt Progress Steps and have been working hard to achieve their targets. 

Term 4 Gold Class are learning about Seasonal Changes, so we are looking at the weather and the four seasons. We know that the four seasons are Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. The children are learning what the trees look like in each season and have created some lovely craft work.

Our Geography topic is 'Things that go.... Whoosh, Splash and Bang'. We have begun with 'Whoosh' the children have made kites from paper and string and talked about how they work with the wind. We have also talked about different strengths of wind - wind, storm, hurricane 'Freya' and tornadoes. Gold Class made their own tornado in a bottle! We will be learning about Splash and Bang as the term goes on.

Gold Class continue to read both in school and practising at home the words they find tricky or are new to them. The language will help when they are writing a story, poems and a fact files this term.

Reading this term focuses on 'Oh say can you say what's the weather today?'' and other stories.

In maths they will be looking at maths terminology, fractions and weighing.




We will be concentrating on creating a weather forecast. Gold Class have been using Purple Mash and have been given a '2Do' list.


We continue to remind the children of the dangers of the internet and put into practise Internet Safety, (Internet Safety Day was on Thursday 7th February 2019) we continue to remind them about keeping personal information to themselves and not to reveal passwords to anyone. Please continue to encourage and support these safety precautions at home - Thank you.
