Welcome to Morpurgo Class
Mrs Payne and Miss Jennings
Mrs Payne teaches on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday; Miss Jennings teaches on a Thursday and Friday.
Mrs Legrand will be in class all week.
We have PE with Mrs Fielding each Wednesday. However, it is useful if PE kits are in school every day as there may be other occasions when a PE kit is needed.
READ! READ! READ! Get hooked on books. Choose one you like and start by trying to read for at least ten minutes every night. Try and build up your reading stamina so that each week you read for a little longer. The key is to choose something that you will enjoy.
REMEMBER record your reading in your B H B of E.
Monday A reading comprehension task will be set by Mrs Payne on a Monday and is due in by Friday. Each child has a Home Learning Book in which to complete their work.
Friday A maths home learning task will be set by Miss Jennings every Friday and is due in by the following Friday. The tasks will vary each week.
There is a Home Learning Box at the back of the class room where all finished home learning should be placed.

It's been fun writing detective stories.
Each child invented a detective as well as a side-kick.
When a precious Maya pot was stolen from the museum, it was time for every detective to use their 'little grey cells' and solve the case of 'The Missing Maya Artefact'.
James recreated the missing Maya pot using clay. It's in the classroom if you want a peek. It's great!
At home, Jack wrote a gripping story, with oodles of humour, entitled 'Murder at Blackberry Manor'. Mrs Payne couldn't stop smiling when she read it.
Look at Daisy's impressive Maya headdress!
