Welcome to Alder Class


You will find lots of exciting information and photographs here on our class page.

 Please make sure you are signed up to Seesaw. If you are not yet signed up, please contact the school office. We want Seesaw as a communication tool and digital portfolio that allows you to have a personalised window into your child's time at school. The class teacher and your child can document any learning so that it can be shared, supported and celebrated.



A few important things that you can help and support your child at home with:

  • PE is on Thursdays and Fridays.  
  • Forest School is on a Wednesday afternoon.
  • Children must read as much as possible at home. They will receive a Merit for 'five reads a week'. As you can imagine, this will not only support them in their progression but enrich their self-esteem which is vital to positive learning.
  • Please practice times tables every week. Times tables underpin a child's ability to develop mathematically in all areas. 
  • Spelling tests will happen every Wednesday so please ensure your child knows their spellings. It makes more sense to learn their spellings and then practise it within a sentence as this embeds what they have learn.
  • Thank you all in advance for your support in this.
  • If you have any questions, or any problems regarding the above, please do pop in and see us and I can arrange an appropriate time to speak with you.

Term 5


We have been continuing our topic 'The Generation Game'. We have had a visit from Miss Hawking's family and we asked them lots of questions about their lives and we asked Miss Hawking's sister questions all about her new born baby.


During forest school, we investigated how to work out the age of trees. We examined and counted the rings that we could see in the logs.

Then we measured the circumference of the tree and used our mathematical skills to calculate the approximate age of the tree.
