A welcome message from the class teacher:

Welcome to Puma’s class page. My name is Miss Bradney and I am the class teacher for pumas. I am in my third year of teaching at SHMPS and before completing my teacher training, I worked as a special needs teaching assistant in a school in Ossett. Our class animal is a puma, which as a class we are all very happy about. Pumas as an animal are very adaptable and face challenges that are thrown at them, an attribute which we praise in pumas class. 

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.
