Autumn 1, Week 3

This week in Class One, we have been thinking about people who help us at home! We read the Anthony Brown story, ‘Piggybook’ to help us start to think about all the different things that our grown-ups have to do every day. The story features some very amusing pictures in which all of the Piggot family start to transform into real pigs, thanks to their messy behaviour! This led to some great discussions about how we can help out at home and the children have been practising by measuring water into washing up jugs, making pretend dinners for their ‘families’ in the home corner and have even been designing some trophies, to say thank you to those who help us at home.

Next week, we will be reading the story of the Jolly Postman to begin to think about people who help us every day such a postmen/ladies and lollipop people. We will be posting letters using stamps and envelopes and will be practising crossing the road safely, using our zebra crossing and road sign toys in the outside area.

A big thank you to everyone who attended curriculum evening yesterday! I hope that it was helpful to you all and has given you a little more of an idea about what we get up to each day here in Class One! Next week will be our first cake day of the year (on Friday). Children are welcome to leave their usual snack at home on this day and bring in either 25p for one cake, or 50p for 2. Children must bring their money in a named envelope please, to ensure we have no missing coins throughout the day.

Happy weekend!

Miss Ingle, Mrs Holmes and Mrs Sabri.

Autumn 1 Week 2

Hello! 

We have had a great week in Class 3 practising Addition and solving simple word problems using our knowledge of Addition. In Literacy we read stories with a familiar setting and used our imagination to plan our own story, which we look forward to writing next week! 

In Geography we looked at a map of the UK and practised naming the four countries as well as their capital cities!

In PHSE we discussed how we wanted to treat each other in class. The children agreed that "we should listen to each other, be kind and never laugh if someone has something important to say."

In Science we sorted and classified different objects into groups: living, non-living and never been alive.

We have really enjoyed meeting new parents at the school gates and appreciate your patience especially at home time, as it is taking some time to remember all the new faces! 

We look forward to another week of fun in Class 3! 

Have a lovely weekend and see you next week!

Autumn Week 2

A second fab week in Class 5 has whizzed by! All the children are really starting to understand the rules and routines of their new class and are becoming more responsible for their behaviour and learning attitude!

Another week of Place Value activities in Maths finishing today with a variety of maths challenges to choose from. All the children had great fun figuring out new ways to be successful at the task and persevered to achieve their learning objective.

We have started reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone as our text in English and will be using this fiction text as a source for our writing over the next term. I am very excited and so are the children who know a bit about Harry Potter!

Just a reminder that your weekly homework is due in on Monday and you will also have your spelling test.

Have a great weekend,

Miss Walker J

Class 4 week 2

I am so impressed with Class 4 this week! There has been some brilliant learning taking place, we've pushed ourselves and used our learning powers - even my brain is aching!! 

Everyone is already developing a brilliant attitude to learning to learning, perfect for Key Stage 2 and I couldn't be more proud! We have been developing place value, writing descriptively, learning about The Old Testament and learning about the first stage of the Stone Age. 

Well done class 4!

Please remember homework is due on Monday as well as our spelling test. 

Please ensure SNACK BOXES are labelled - there are lots being left over!

Autumn 1, Week 2

Here we are at the end of our second week back and Class One is now complete with all 30 children now in class. We are all feeling very proud of the new cohort in the way they have conducted themselves around school and in the kind and sensible way they carry out their learning each day and it has been lovely this week to watch them begin to form friendships with new children and get stuck into the many activities we have had planned for them this week.

This week, your child has very busy taking part in…

  • Circle times to discuss likes and dislikes
  • Painting in the art corner
  • Trying out some number games on the class computers
  • Learning single letter phonic sounds and forming them without taking our pen off of the whiteboard/ moving the pen in the correct direction.

A thank you once again for your patience at the gate during home-time and morning drop offs as we learn all of your names and faces. As you can imagine, learning parents, grandparents, child-minders, aunties and other family friends for each child is not an easy task but we hope to get a little quicker at this soon. In the meantime, please continue to inform a member of office staff or class adult if someone new is picking up your child, as we will be unable to let your child leave unless we have had consent and notification of this.

Lastly, you may notice that over the course of the year, your child may come home wearing a badge on a Friday afternoon. These are from our Friday awards assembly in which your child can win a values, effort or achievement award. Your child will be able to wear their badge for the whole week but will hand it back in the following Friday morning so that it can be given to the next person. We ask kindly that children look after their badges each week and that parents ensure that the children bring it back in on the following Friday. Thank you for your cooperation.

Enjoy your weekend everyone,

Miss Ingle, Mrs Holmes, Mrs Gemmell and Mrs Sabri
