Monday 20th June

 

 

 

Good Morning!

 

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend. Where has the time gone? We are now well into our final half term in Oak Class. Last week the children sat their phonic assessment. This is an unusual assessment as it assesses the children's ability to blend to read words. The children did really well and were very relaxed during their assessment. The tokens at the end definitely helped!

The weather is looking much warmer this week. If you can please put sun cream on before coming to school and remember to send your child's water bottle every day as they are encouraged to drink much more frequently to keep hydrated. 

 

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

Maths

Both Year 1 and Year 2 will be working on

  • adding and subtracting using number patterns
  • adding and subtracting using number bonds to 10

 

Literacy

 

We are starting our last book! This is a lovely story called The Bee Who Spoke by Al MacCuish. The story is about a young Parisian girl called Belle who travels to with her family to the countryside with her family. Following a very minor accident she gets lost and is rescued by a talking bee. The two share adventures and Belle is amazed to learn how nature works in harmony, whether in the countryside or the city.

 

We will be

  • responding to illustrations
  • making a list
  • creating a class poem
  • exploring the main character
  • focusing on the language of the text

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.
