We are a mixed age class of Year 1 and Year 2 pupils. Our teacher is Mrs Manning and teaching assistant Mrs Rogers-Leggatt, we are also lucky to be helped in class by Mrs Porritt and Mrs Jones.
This Summer term our topic will be 'Seaside and Holidays' which we will link as much of our learning to as possible.
In English we will be using 'Talk4Writing' to develop our writing skills.
Below is information about our class which you will hopefully find helpful.
Home School Book – Children have a home school book (blue book) which will be checked daily by class teacher/TA, therefore if you have any messages/changes of arrangement for collection etc, please record in this book (children should put books in the tray every morning).
PE – Children will have a sports session with Severn Sports every Wednesday morning and should come to school in their PE kit and trainers ready for this, with their school uniform and shoes in their bag to change into after PE. We will also have PE on a Monday afternoon and the children should bring their PE kit in their bags for this session and children will leave school in their PE kit.
Outdoor Learning – We will be having a session of Outdoor Learning on a Friday afternoon,
could you please ensure that children have a waterproof coat, wellies, a hat and gloves.
Reading Books – Your child will be bringing their reading folder home with their reading books
and reading journal. Please read the information in the reading journal and try to read with
your child as often as possible (ideally every night but at least 3 times a week for ten minutes) and write a comment in their reading journal. It is important for your child’s reading progress for them to read regularly at home as well as in school. Reading books will be changed once a week (RWI: Monday and Reading books: Wednesday). Please ensure that children bring their Reading Folders into school every day and place them in the box.
Homework – Will consist of Reading, Spelling, SPAG and Maths. Every week, the children will be set Reading and weekly spellings whereas, SPAG and Maths will alternate. Homework will be set on Fridays to be returned on Tuesday.
