Welcome to Mars class. The teacher is Mrs Miller and the Teaching Assistants are Mrs Regardsoe and Mrs Browne.
Welcome back! We hope you had a fantastic summer break and are fully recharged and ready to go!
We have lots of exciting things happening around the school with some changes and surprises. Over the holiday, we have had a wigwam installed in wobbly wood and a new playhouse which look amazing. I am sure the children can’t wait to use them.
We would like to welcome our new Year 1s to Mars Class. It can be very daunting moving from Reception to Year 1, but we hope to make the transition as smooth as possible for them. During the first term, we will be following the National Curriculum and in the afternoons, the children will have the opportunity to transition with child led activities which involve our role play areas, construction, DT, Art and our shared outside area with Reception.
This term our topic is Houses and Homes where we will be looking at houses in the past and present, as well as linking this in with our History topic of the Great Fire of London. We will be looking at fiction books with houses in them, such as the Three Little Pigs and Hansel and Gretel which also link in with our Science topic of Materials and their uses. Please see the attached topic web for more information of what to expect this term.
Please listen out for the “Meet the Teacher” date. This is a great opportunity for us to meet and where I will go through information such as homework, spellings, reading and expectations in KS1.
We also hope to squeeze in a school trip relating to our topic – more details to follow.
Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
