Hello and welcome to the Water Class page.

Water Class 2017-18
Summer Term 2018
At Cowick we like to make our Curriculum fun and inspiring for the children. We use a theme to link in most of our lessons. In Water Class during the Summer term most of our work will be based on themes linked to our topic 'Flying Without Wings!'.
Your child will be given regular homework to consolidate what has been taught within the classroom. This will come in different forms throughout the year children are encouraged to be as creative as they wish in the course of completing their activities! Homework will usually include Maths, Spellings and Reading.
Homework is issued on a Thursday, to be handed in the following Tuesday.
Children in Water Class will receive two sets of spellings each week. One of the sets will be the children's 'Big Spell' words. The children will be tested on these each Friday in a traditional spelling test. The children have the opportunity to earn themselves tokens for successfully learning these.

Children are also expected to read regularly at home. The children will receive a pack of books from school on a weekly basis. We ask you to listen to your child read on a regular basis. We shall collect the pack of books in once a week to change them. If your child reads all the books in the pack they can read books from home or the library until the pack is changed. I also encourage children to read other books, magazines and newspapers to broaden their reading skills in school to develop their love for reading.
If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to make an appointment to come in and see myself. I hope you and your child have a fun filled and enjoyable school year in.
Thank you for your support.
This Summer Term, the children in Water Class will be learning through the topic of 'Flying without Wings!' work shall be based around Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach.

This week is E-Safety week. In Water Class, we have discussed how to stay safe online. We made a word cloud with all the key language we used to help us remember how to be S.M.A.R.T online.
Recently, we have been busy writing letters to Team GB athletes who inspired us while we have been researching London 2012. We tried to post our letters but they were just too big! A big 'Thank You!' to Mrs Reed for going to the Post Office to send them away for us all.
