Autumn Term

Welcome to Class 1!

The start of a new year at school is very exciting and I (Mrs Rutter), Miss Seton-Jones and Mrs Hogan welcome you to Class 1!  We know the children will settle down into the new routines really quickly, and enjoy all the fun things we’ve got planned this year. Miss Jowitt also teaches in class 1 on Tuesday afternoons and we have some help from Mrs Hallsworth, Mrs Duggan and Mrs Snarr.

A few things to note to help things run smoothly are that the children need full school P.E. kit (white T-shirt, black or blue shorts and pumps) on Tuesdays, but we suggest leaving it in school until half term, when we will send it home with the children.  Children need to bring their reading books in everyday to read them with staff in school.  Please read with your child as much as possible at home, every night if you can, and record that you have read in the Reading Record book. This will really help with their reading progress and they love doing it too!

This term our topic is Toys. We will be looking at toys from the past as part of our history and how some toys work as part of out DT.

So far we have spent the first few weeks learning how to use our classroom.  We have discovered all the different areas and resources.  We are working hard and are also using some continuous provision including Writing, Reading, Maths, Creative, ICT, malleable, Phonics and Construction.  We will be setting up a toys role play area very soon too!

We have met Bobby, our class bear who likes to come home with a different child every night!

Soon we will start daily phonics sessions to practise our sounding out and blending skills and will be taking part in a wide variety of maths activities to practise our number, calculation, and space, shape and measure skills.
