We are covering the following skills in Numeracy this term:

Geometry - properties of shapes

Pupils should be taught to:

  • draw 2-D shapes using given dimensions and angles
  • recognise, describe and build simple 3-D shapes, including making nets
  • compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons
  • illustrate and name parts of circles, including radius, diameter and circumference and know that the diameter is twice the radius
  • recognise angles where they meet at a point, are on a straight line, or are vertically opposite, and find missing angles
  • Geometry - position and direction

    Pupils should be taught to:

    • describe positions on the full coordinate grid (all 4 quadrants)
    • draw and translate simple shapes on the coordinate plane, and reflect them in the axes
 It is ESSENTIAL that your child fluently knows their times tables both division facts and multiplication and have quick recall on these. This is ongoing homework for them and is vital to their progress this year - they should have their x tables rockstars password and every Friday whoever is the highest in their challenge group will be rewarded and they will be celebrated in class. If you do not have it then please email me.
 
AWARDS
We have a brand new award system beginning in Spring 2023!
We now have 12 values that we believe are the beating heart of Coppice and we shall refer to these as our "CARE Values" these have been selected in consultation with our children and staff.
C stands for: co-operation, committed and considerate
A stands for: accepting, aspirational and achieving
R stands for: respectful, responsible and resilience
E stands for: excellent, empathetic and enthusiastic

We are very excited to be starting work on our new values system when we come back in school in January.  Each week we have a new value – 12 in total.  Our first value will be Respect.  The children will have an assembly Monday morning about how to show and give respect to others both in school and at home!  We will be expecting this to be demonstrated to all members of our Coppice community,  it is important that even when we move onto a new value, the old one isn’t lost.

 

Our new core values will now form the basis of our ambassador passports (these have now been renamed – core value passports and the children can achieve their bronze, silver and gold awards throughout the year for each core value. We will of course keep you informed about how your child is getting on with this throughout the year.

 

Each week Mrs Seaton will sent out a Newsletter that will reflect the value we are working on so that it can also be supported at home.  We look forward to seeing our children bright and early ready to embrace the new weekly challenges!
