Hello and welcome to Class 8 and we are called the Falcons. My name is Mrs Mitchell am I am Class 8’s teacher. We also have Mrs Exposito who is our wonderful teaching assistant who works with us and teaches the class on a Wednesday during my planning time. This year, we will be learning about a variety of topics in a fun and interesting way. We will be having visitors in school and going on trips, to enhance our learning experience and make our learning as interactive and as fun as possible! Our learning this year will include…
- Autumn 1 – The Maya Civilisation
- Autumn 2 – Earthquakes, Tsunamis & Volcanoes
- Spring 1 – Ancient Greece
- Spring 2 – Deserts
- Summer 1 – The History of Arnold
- Summer 2 – The Geography of Arnold
As well as the topics above, we will also be learning about lots of other subjects and completing lots of projects around these. Please see the Curriculum section on our website for additional information.
Our PE days are on a Wednesday and Friday so children can come to school in PE kit on those days. We check our planners on a Monday so please sign these when you read. Spelling and maths homework are sent out on Monday and due back in by Friday 😊
I have worked in Education for 32 years and have now been teaching for 10 years. I have worked in EYFS, Year 1, Year 3, year 4 and also spent some time teaching at Further Education colleges in Nottingham. In my spare time I like to go to the gym, read and get out walking in the beautiful parks and countryside in Nottingham with my husband and children.
I consider it a privilege to teach and enjoy facilitating the learning of your children, hopefully in a way that inspires and motivates them to believe in themselves and be the very best that they can be!
