This is our YR class. The class teacher is Mrs Susie Winchester and the teaching assistant is Miss Court. Ms Helen Cresswell teaches Venus class on Mondays.
Welcome back! We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and would like to wish you a very Happy New Year.
Last term the children showed an interest in role playing as superheroes, building dens, obstacle courses and police stations so our next topic will be ‘Helpful Heroes.’ We will look at how we are each super and what makes us special, superhero powers and our favourite superheroes and real-life superheroes such as those that work for the emergency services and people we encounter every day.
We will hopefully be able to arrange for some visitors from the emergency services to come in and speak to the children about their roles. This has always been very popular in the past but they are of course, very busy. Should any parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles etc be willing to come in and talk to the children about their occupations please do let us know.
In phonics we will be focussing on the Phase 3 sounds and children will bring home a little note at the end of each week outlining which sounds they have been learning. It is important that children read regularly at home and spend time practicing their phonics sounds.
We will also begin to send out optional home learning activities each Friday. These can be literacy, maths, topic based and are fun activities for you to complete with your child, should you wish, based on the learning we have been doing in class.
Please ensure your child has appropriate clothing such as warm coats and welly boots in school (as well as gloves and hats when it is really cold) to enable them to participate fully in outdoor activities.
Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to pop in and speak to us after school.
