Welcome to Tala Class


Tala Class Teacher is: Mrs Cannings

Tala Class Teaching Assistant is: Mrs Wheeler


Our topic for Autumn Term 1 is: The Big Build

This term we will be exploring how to use materials to change the world around us. We will be looking at various buildings and learn how the world looks from above and how we represent our natural and made world in maps.


In English, the children will be writing narratives with repeated patterns based on, ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and writing labels, lists and captions based upon the story, ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?’ by Eric Carle.  


We will also be designing and constructing houses and carrying out an experiment to see if they can stand up to the ‘huffs and puffs’ from the Big Bad Wolf!


Forest School sessions happen every Tuesday - please send in wellies and waterproof coats/ trousers for this session. We have plenty of waterproof trousers or wellies if required.


PE Sessions will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays with our PE Specialist Instructor. Please send in PE Kits on a Monday in case we fit in an additional session or your child needs to get changed at any point. We also complete the 'Daily Mile' each day so your child can change into PE shoes if preferred.


Homework - Across the school we use an activity grid approach which provides the opportunity to apply and consolidate classroom learning. Please choose one activity per week to complete at home. 

Here is the homework grid for this half term.
