Welcome to Class 1!
Mrs Holmes and Ms Fairchild teach Class 1 which includes our nursery, reception and year 1 children. On Monday afternoon Class 1 has Forest Schools with Mrs Curran and Mrs Brown and on Thursday afternoon it is PE and Music with Mrs Redgate and Ms Smith.
In order to access good outdoor learning provision on a daily basis we ask that all children bring a pair of wellies to leave in school.
Can they also bring a hat and gloves as it can be very cold!
PE for all children in class 1 is on a Monday and a Thursday. Please ensure that your child comes to school in their PE kit on both of these days. We will be covering dance, cheerleading, games and gymnastics.
Forest Schools for all children in class 1 is on a Tuesday. They will need to bring their Forest schools kit each week.
Pupils receive homework on a Friday. This may include:
Maths task set on MyMaths
Tasks related to their topic
Children are expected to read at least 4 x a week
Homework needs to be completed by the following Thursday when this will be checked online and reading diaries/phonics activities reviewed. Your child will receive Class Dojos for all tasks completed to a good standard.
50 Dojos = a prize!
Children will have a reading challenge set for February half term and for the Easter holidays. Further information will be sent nearer the time.
Children will be rewarded with class dojos for completing the challenge!
Our Big Question
Our big question this term in Class 1 is 'What Makes History?' In our history lessons we will be learning about the history of toys and finding out how children used to entertain themselves before X'Boxes and Playstations. In English we will be writing recounts and poetry and, of course, we will be continuing to learn phonics so that our reading and writing can go from strength-to-strength.
