A welcome message from the class teacher:

Welcome to Lion’s class page. My name is Mrs Bird and I am the class teacher for Lions. I have worked at SHMPS for 3 years and Prior to working at our school, I worked at a school in Leeds teaching in Upper and Lower Key Stage Two. Our class animal is a Lion, which as a class we are all very happy about. Lions are a symbol of strength and courage which as a class are qualities that we feel we embody.

 

Homework is given out on a Friday to be returned for the following Thursday. This includes Maths homework, times tables and spellings (Spelling test will be on Tuesday) . Reading at home should be completed daily.

Autumn - As part of this term’s topic ‘Vikings and Anglo Saxons’ we will be visiting the Jorvik Viking Museum which is a very interesting and informative day out. I will not give too much away about the different activities that we do there as I don’t want to spoil the surprise but it is very interactive and provides lots of excellent learning opportunities.

 

I visited the Jorvik museum when I was at school and it is a very fun and interesting day out.
