Chamber Classroom

We are located in one of the ground floor classrooms at the rear of the school.  Take a tour of our classroom.

Our Day

Our timetable may change occasionally according to needs. We begin our day with an assembly or class worship. We then have guided reading followed by English and a 15 min break (including milk/water and fruit). We complete our mornings with Maths. Each afternoon always begins with a phonics session followed by a variety of subjects throughout the week: Physical Education (PE), Music, History/Geography, Science, Religious Education, Handwriting, Computing and Art.

Home Learning

Spellings: Will usually be given out on Mondays to learn for spelling tests the following Monday. Completed spelling sheets need to be returned on a Monday to encourage children to complete their spellings in good time. 

Class Newsletters and Mission homework are sent out at the first week of each half term. There will be twelve tasks which can be completed at any time over the half term. We suggest compiling two pieces a week.

In maths children are continually reinforcing their knowledge of reading and writing numbers and place value. Children have been working hard on number bonds and investigating patterns in addition and subtraction calcualtions. During Autumn 2 children will be investigating shapes in the environment and their properties.

In English we explore books from a range of genre to develop our speaking and listening skills, reading and writing. We also work hard to improve our knowledge and use of different punctuation and grammar. We also develop our word decoding and spelling skills during daily phonics sessions and a weekly spelling test. We retell stories, poems and non-fictions texts using a range of talk for writing activities. These include performing the text using actions, story boards and rewriting it in our books. We also use the different texts as models to modify texts and invent our own ideas for writing new texts.

Things to Remember

PE for Fox and Chamber classes will be on Friday this half term. 

Children are to come into school in their full kit (blue T-shirt, jogging bottoms, their school jumper and trainers). 

No ‘sports wear’ or jewellery is to be worn in P.E days. 

PE will be taught by our specialist PE teachers as part of our partnership with Dream Big Sports.

Please ensure your child brings in their book bag (with reading book and reading record) every day so that we can ensure that we can read with each child on a 1:1 basis at least once a fortnight in school. Homework journals only need to be sent in every Wednesday to give children an opportunity to share and celebrate their achievements with the rest of the class. Practical homework can be brought in at any time, e.g. completed models. 

‘Baking Money’ will continue to be collected every Monday morning at the gate. This is a voluntary donation we ask for each week (£1 per child) which goes towards funding class rewards, treats and other curriculum enhancements.


Your child can also visit the school library each week (Friday) and can change their library book and bring it home to share.  It is essential this book is looked after as a small charge will be asked for if the book is lost or damaged.
