Message from Mrs Perry

Good afternoon to Key Stage 1 parents.

I am writing to let you know further information about Lilac, Oak and Hawthorn Classes from Monday next week.  School promised to review arrangements by the end of September and we have done so.

From Monday the Key Stage 1 children will form one bubble. This means that more activities can be done in year groups.

From Monday, Year 1 will do P.E., R.E and Music together. Year 2 can also do Spanish together.

PE day for Years 1 and 2 is Tuesday.

Willow Class and Reception children in Lilac Class do PE on Thursday.

Lunchtimes and playtimes will be done in year groups.

I am sure there will be more information for you from the class teachers by the end of the week so keep an eye on the class pages on the school website.

Keep safe and well.

Mrs. Perry

Good Morning Oak Class!

 

I hope you have had a lovely weekend. What has happened to the weather? Thankfully there are lots of activities and areas that we can keep busy in if it is too wet to go outside.

On Friday this week we will be having a party. We will not be eating any food but will be playing traditional party games such as pin the tail on the donkey, musical statues, pass the parcel etc. This is to celebrate all the hard work the children have done on our first book. It will be a none uniform day and the children can come dressed in anything they like. Please keep it practical though as the children will be in it all day including lunch and playtimes.

 

As always please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any concerns or queries.

 

Mrs Hanson

Maths

Although Year 1 and Year 2 will be taught separately to make sure all children are receiving their curriculum requirements they will both be learning about the same thing e.g. place value, time, addition and subtraction. 

In Maths this week we will be continuing to look at Place Value some of the children have really struggled with this. Place value is understanding what the number is in terms of what it is made from (tens and units) and its relationship to other numbers (more or less, doubles, halves etc). This week we are going to focus on

  • recognising numbers to 100
  • understanding place value of numbers
  • partitioning numbers

 

Literacy

We will be finishing the story of Halibut Jackson. Please feel free to read the book or watch the videos on YouTube from beginning to end as many times as you like!

In Literacy this week we will be

  • listening to and joining in with the retelling of the story
  • creating a story board
  • retelling the story in our own words using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces
  • designing an invitation

A little information about Oak Class

 

Oak Class drop off time starts from 8:45am to 8:55am for a prompt start to the day.

Oak Class collection time is 3:30pm  

The children will come and leave school from the main entrance next to the office and walk through school to our classroom

We will still have a 'Sanitation  Station ' in each room and we will be continuing to encourage your children to wash their hands more regularly.

 

In order to avoid large groups on the playground breaks and lunchtimes will need to be staggered. Oak's break times are:

Breaktimes: 10.00am - 10.15am and  2.15pm - 2.30pm

Lunch: 12.00pm - 12.30pm outside and 12.30pm - 1.00pm eating lunch.

All of these things will be explained carefully to the children when they come in.

 

Homework will be sent home on Friday to be returned no later than Tuesday. The activities that we send are designed to support the learning that has been done in class during the week. Your children will need support to complete them.

 

Spellings will be sent home on Friday for the test the following Friday. 

 

PE is on Tuesday and Wednesday. This Term we are asking you to send your children in on PE days in their PE kit as getting changed can cause lots of lost clothes issues! Please can you make sure all items of clothing, especially jumpers, cardigans and coats are named.
