THIS WEEK IN CLASS

W/C 6/11/23


BLUEBELL CLASS (2/3)

Hello Parents and Guardians of Bluebell class.

Just a few reminders/pointers to begin with: please can P.E kits continue to come into school on Tuesdays. Please could spelling books be brought into school on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays ready for your child's new spellings. Also please could name labels be put into all clothing to avoid any mix up in the classroom and wrong clothing going home or getting lost at school!

Please feel free to ask your children about the following learning that they will be doing this week:

This week in English the children will be learning about the book 'We Are Water Protectors' and will be learning about the importance of protecting our waterways to keep the planet and ourselves healthy.

In Maths the children are continuing their year 2 and year 3 addition and subtraction skills unit, with both year groups using place value grids and Deines blocks manipulatives to support their learning.

In Science the children are learning about electricity and will be going on a appliances hunt around the school. We will also discuss the importance of being safe when handling electrical items.

In R.E the class have just started their new topic of Prophecy and Promise. Last week the children went on a tour of our local church: Our Lady Help of Christians and St Denis led by Canon Lock, we even got to use the hidden tunnel! Continuing this learning this week the children will be looking at some of the different roles that people take during Mass by creating job adverts.

In the wider curriculum topics this week the children will be discussing the different bodies of water that they know of and learning about seasonal foods around the world.

They will be learning about Remembrance Day and taking part in a variety of activities including making poppies, class discussion and writing activities.

The class have continued their P.E sessions with Kinetic Sports.

Spellings will aim to go out with children on the Monday the week before the spelling test to give the children over a week to learn them.



Many thanks,

Miss Michael and the Bluebell class team

 

BUTTERCUP CLASS (R/1)

Welcome to Buttercup Class!

We would like to send a warm welcome to all of the children and their families who are very much a part of Buttercup Class this year.

As your teachers and teaching assistants, we are very excited about what the new year brings and to see what is in store for the children as the year unfolds.

You are super lucky this year because you have kinetic sports delivering high quality sports sessions on a Monday afternoon. We ask that the children bring their P.E kit into school on P.E days (Reception children will begin to change for PE next half term).

We will continue to have our Celebration Assembly on a Friday afternoon, just as we did last year.

The main focus for homework this half term will be reading and phonics based activities. We ask that you spend 10 minutes a day reading with your child. The Y1 children will bring home 2 RWI books that are directly linked to their learning in school. The Reception children will initially have wordless books and will soon be bringing home the sounds that they have learnt during their RWI lessons each week to practise.

We begin the year with a history topic about the history of toys. We would love it if any grandparents would be willing to come in and share what toys and games that they played with when they were young. We will also be going on our first field trip linked to this topic towards the end of this half term. More information about this will be shared soon.

We are looking forward to better getting to know all of our families and want you to remember that we are available to answer questions, reassure and support in any way that we can.

Many thanks

You will have homework sent home each Monday, starting on the 11th September. We encourage the children to read for 20 minutes a day in addition to practising their weekly spellings.

We begin the year with a history topic which teaches about the Stone Age and the Iron Age. The children will have some projects to complete during the half term as part of their home learning. In science, we will be exploring rocks and fossils.

We are looking forward to better getting to know all of our families and want you to remember that we are available to answer questions, reassure and support in anyway that we can.

Many thanks
