Class 2 2020 - 2021
Class 2 Teacher
Hello and welcome to Class 2.
*** IF YOU STILL HAVE ANY READING BOOKS FROM THE PREVIOUS SCHOOL YEAR, PLEASE COULD THEY BE RETURNED TO SCHOOL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THANK YOU**
Message from Mrs Seddon
I hope you have had a lovely time over the summer and I am sure you are now ready to start the new school year, so welcome to Year 1.
I am looking forward to getting to know you again and working together so that we have a very exciting year.
Our teaching assistants are Mrs Prickett and Mrs Luckman.
The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception. Learning through play will continue to be an important part of the school day, and the children will gradually be eased into more formal learning as the term goes on.
This half term, reading will be the homework focus. We ask that you read with your child for at least ten minutes a night and sign their reading record regularly. We will listen to your child read at least once a week but please ensure that their reading book is in school every day.
To encourage regular reading at home, we will be launching a 'Teddy Bear's Picnic' reward where children will earn items for their 'picnic plate' for reading at least three times a week. Once the plate is full, they will receive a prize and a certificate.
In English we will be learning about..
Stories involving fantasy
Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers
During our lessons we will be discussing our ideas with our friends and making sure our sentences make sense before we write them. Finally we will write our own versions of the story remembering to use our capital letters, full stops and spaces to write simple sentences.
We will also be using adjectives, adverbs and conjunctions such as and, but, so.
Handwriting and phonics will also be taught twice a day.
In Maths we will be recapping lots of the Maths that we missed while we were off as well as…
Counting and Understanding number
Place value to 10 and then 20
Calculating-adding and subtracting
Puzzles and problem solving
The children will be doing PE on Mondays and Thursdays.
The children need their own water bottle to keep in class which they can access throughout the day and they will change their water regularly. Please make sure your child’s name is written clearly on their water bottle. Also ensure that all your child's clothes are labelled with their name.
I am looking forward to working with you all in our new classroom.
