Welcome to Lilac!
Miss Gaff - Teacher
Welcome to Lilac.
I'm Miss Gaff the Lilac Class teacher.
Together with Mrs Shaw, Miss Wilson and Ms Smart, we are going to have lots of fun learning new things!
I'm looking forward to a fantastic year with you all.
Monday 2nd December 2019
The Christmas countdown begins! The children have now all been given their parts for the play and we are very busy at school rehearsing our lines and parts. Please ensure you continue to practise these at home with your child too.
I hope you all enjoyed the Christmas fair on Friday.
This week Year 1 will be continuing to practise counting back from 100. We will also be learning all about money and how we can add up coins to make different amounts. In English, we will be exploring our new book 'surprising sharks' where we get to learn all about sharks up until Christmas!
New spellings have been sent home for the children to learn for next Friday so please continue to practise these at home with the children!
Reception are doing really well with their reading books, so please ensure they are looking at these each night by discussing what is happening in the pictures, they will be beginning to get books with words in so please encourage using their robot arms. Please ensure you sign their reading records and bring the books to school each day.
Reception have now completed phase 2 sounds and have now learned then vowels and their importance.
The children need to still be ensuring their letters are formed correctly as well as sitting on the line and being the correct height. In Maths the reception children will be learning all about repeated patterns and seeing if we can create our own patterns too.
P.E is every Monday and Thursday so please ensure the children's PE kits are in school and we will send them home at half term to be washed!
Please ensure your child's book is in school every day and that you are continuing to read with them at home.
I cannot empathise the importance ensuring your child brings a coat into school every day as the weather is forever changing and it is always best to ensure they can stay warm and dry.
Miss Gaff and all Lilac staff
