Welcome to Kenya Class!

Class Teacher: Miss Barsby

Teaching Assistants: Miss Chamberlain, Miss Curtis and Mrs McCombe


We are very excited to be back in school with your children and we are happy to say we have settled in well to the new term. This term we will be learning about Space and we have already begun to launch to the moon in our writing unit.

PE days will be on a Monday and a Tuesday. Please ensure your child has a full Welland Academy PE kit and that they arrive for school already dressed for PE. Also please make sure that long hair can be tied back for PE and if your child has earrings please make sure that they are removed before the lesson. 

Spellings will be handed out on a Thursday and tested the following Thursday.

English currently has a focus on our theme 'Scream Machine' and 'Ants in your Plants'.

Maths this half term will be focusing on division and fractions, decimals and percentages. 

Guided reading is based around our topic of Scream Machine and Ants in your Plants. 

Times tables will be tested every day during our Maths lesson.

Homework will regularly be distributed through teams every week. Alongside this, they must practice their spellings weekly, their reading daily, and if they have a Lexia License then they will need to be using this daily.

If you have any questions about  your child’s class, routines, or learning we are pleased to talk to you briefly on the playground at the end of the day. If you would like to speak in confidence, or have a longer conversation, please make an appointment at the office.

Thank you!
