Welcome to Pearl Class!

Welcome to Term 5! We hope that you had a great Easter break and are all ready for the exciting times ahead.

Have a look at the photos from previous terms to give you an idea of the fun learning activities which Pearl class enjoy. We will keep you posted about any special events coming up.


In English we are starting a new text called Tom's Midnight Garden written by Philippa Pearce. It is the story of Tom, a young boy who is sent to stay at his aunt and uncle's house for the summer. He is expecting to be bored and as he lies awake in his bed he listens to the grandfather clock chiming in the hall downstairs the chimes don't stop at twelve. He races downstairs and finds a wonderful garden, a garden that he was told didn't exist. What will happen?


Our new topic will involve looking at the history and geography of the local area so if anyone has any old pictures or photos of Ditton through the years please send them in! We will be doing a tour of Ditton and will be creating some amazing art work of St Peters Church. There will be an exciting DT project so we may have some budding architects!



Pearl Class has a wide range of books and we make sure that we all read every day. It is really important that this is continued at home so please record your child's reading  as the Reading Record Books are checked daily. Our Reading Rollercoaster reward scheme has been really successful and we have been giving out lots of certificates and prizes so keep it up.
This term we are starting a new reading scheme which will involve the children completing an online quiz at the end of each book. We'll keep you posted!


Maths Homework - We have been looking at addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and problem solving using all 4 operations. Take every opportunity when you are out shopping to ask questions about prices and total amounts. The children need to know both multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12 . Look at our homework page for some ideas!


​PE kits need to be in school on Monday indoors and outdoors Tuesday please check that you have plimsolls and trainers that fit!

​Please keep visiting our dynamic page as it updated on a weekly basis and you wont want to miss out on our fun activities.


​It is going to be an exciting new term and keep on checking our class page for updates on what we have done and also have planned .
