Brunel

Welcome to Brunel Class! Mrs Bagnall and Mrs Wicheard will be your teachers this year, and Mrs Pike is our class Teaching Assistant. Mrs Bagnall will be in school on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs Wicheard will be in on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Important information

PE will take place on a Monday and a Thursday. Please come into school wearing your PE kit on these days. As the days get cooler, don’t forget to wear tracksuit bottoms and a jumper.

Every Tuesday and Thursday, Mrs Pike will change any books as needed.

Recorder lessons will take place on a Monday afternoon.

Ways to support your child at home

Please listen to your child read every day at home. This does not have to be their reading book, however we would like to see that these are being read at least four times a week.

Please help your child to practise their number bonds (to 10/20/100) and their times table target. These will be given to the children early on in the first term. Every Friday the children will be given a short Times Tables Quiz based on these targets.

Children will be given a Mathletics username and password. This is an an excellent way for children to practise a variety of Maths skills online. Other useful websites include Topmarks, BBC Bitesize, ICT Games and Cool Maths Games.

Each week, the children will be given a set of spellings to practise at home. They will be quizzed on these every Friday.

Autumn Term 1 – Where Am I?

This term our topic is ‘Where Am I?’ During this topic we will be learning about our local town of Corsham and carrying out some Geography fieldwork. We will be using maps to find out where we are in the world, and study human and physical geographical features of local landscape.
