Welcome to Venus Class
This is our YR class. The class teacher is Mrs Susie Winchester and Ms Helen Cresswell and the teaching assistant is Miss Court.
Welcome back. We hope you and the children have all enjoyed a well-earned rest. We are amazed at how far they have come in such little time; settling into school life with confidence and enjoying all that we have to offer.
Term 2 is always full of excitement with everything that happens in the build up to, dare I say it…Christmas. As, last term the children showed an interest in celebrations by creating birthday cakes and having parties we have decided to embrace this in our next topic Hip, Hip, Hooray exploring the different things we celebrate at this time of year, including Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day, Diwali and ultimately exploring Why Christmas is important to Christians amongst other things. We will also explore the seasonal changes as we watch the last Autumn leaves fall before the ground glistens with a frosty coating and develop our understanding of why this happens and what this means.
Our PE this term will continue to be with Ms Cresswell on Monday mornings and sometimes with Mrs Winchester on Tuesday afternoons. Our outdoor learning, also known as Welly Wednesday, will still take place on Wednesday afternoons.
The children are thoroughly enjoying the new additions to our outdoor area, from making cakes and pies in the outdoor café, to performing the latest songs on the shows, to looking for fairies in the small world area. Our outdoor area will continue to grow and we will be intending to use it whatever the weather so please do ensure your child has appropriate clothing such as coats and welly boots in school (as well as gloves and hats when it turns colder).
Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to pop in and speak to us after school.
