Class 1

Welcome to class 1!

Thank you for coming to have a look at our class page. We are very excited about showing you what we will be doing during the year. We will be updating this page regularly so please keep checking. I will put our weekly newsletter on here at the end of the week or sometimes I will put on photos.

We have lots of lovely activities planned for the term! Learning lots of new routines, new faces and new information! We will have lots of fun in and out of the classroom.

 

Just a few reminders to help everyone's days run more smoothly.....

  1. It can take time for children to settle: it is a big change and an exciting new adventure. We know it's hard if your child is getting upset at drop off time, but they do settle quicker once their parent has left. So grit your teeth, smile, say goodbye and leave! Thank you very much for your cooperation and support.
  2. Children need to bring a water bottle every day that can be refilled during the day-it helps our brains work. Do not put water bottles in the reading folders as we don't want any spillages and ruined books ahhh!
  3. We will have P.E twice a week (days to be confirmed), but P.E bags stay in school until half term (unless they are particularly dirty). On P.E days it would be very helpful if girls wear socks or trousers, tights are a bit tricky.
  4. The best way to help and support your child is to read with them every day. Read their school book with them and sign the reading record book. Remember to read all different types of books, magazines, letters, signposts......everything!
  5. LABEL LABEL LABEL everything please! Keep checking that labels are still attached.
  6. If I have a concern about your child, I will contact you immediately. Please don't worry, just be reassured that everything is going well and your child is happy, settled and learning well. Equally, if you have a worry or have a concern please come and see me at the end of the day or phone the office to arrange a suitable time to talk. The start of the day can be a bit hectic! 
  7. Remember children will be very tired at the end of the day , so allow them to time to relax before asking them questions about their day!

Thank you very much.

Mrs Jones and class 1.

Wow first week done and what a brilliant week it was! The children are coming into school happily and putting all their belongings away independently.

They all presented their “All about me” bag to the class and everyone listened so well. Their bags were then used to inspire the activities for the week. We had maps and books about different countries, tractors, farms, Superhero costumes, shells ……

On Friday the children went into the school assembly (which we don’t usually do until week 3!) which is the celebration assembly. Each teacher chooses 1 child from their class to receive the star trophy, someone who has been kind, helpful, worked hard, persevered or has just been generally lovely! I chose Darcey this week as she is so helpful and good at tidying up, a very important skill in Reception! We also won the attendance award as we had 100% attendance, we have to share it with 2 other classes.

Next week we will be learning about dinosaurs! We will be reading dinosaur stories and information books, sorting dinosaurs by their different characteristics and size. We will be digging for dinosaurs, feeding dinosaurs and trying to get them out of an ice egg!

We will be continuing with our baseline activities, finding out exactly what each child knows and then we can plan what we need to teach them.

If your child has any dinosaur books or dinosaur toys that they would like to show that would be great, please make sure they are labelled! Thank you.

P.E will be on a Tuesday afternoon. It would really help if girls avoided wearing tights on this day for the first term, unless they can put them on independently! Thank you very much.
