Mrs Peta Phillips (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday)
Welcome to Leopards Class! We are so happy to welcome you into Year 1. We hope you enjoyed the summer holidays and that you were able to spend time with your friends and families.
In Leopards class this term, we will be doing Maths, English, Science, Topic, RE, Art, PE and Music.
Please make sure you read as often as you possibly can with your child. It is so important and will help them within all aspects of the curriculum. Children must bring their reading book and record in every day as we like to try to hear every child read over each week. We will be changing books on Mondays and Fridays. Please make sure you remind your child to change their book on these days if they need to. You should have a Leopards reading record to write down every time your child has read, please let us know if you have misplaced this. We encourage reading with your child to take place as often as possible (at least 4-5 times per week) to further develop their phonic knowledge and understanding of different texts. The same reading book should be shared several times during the week to embed fluency and understanding. This is the pattern we advise:
1st : Read
2nd : Recount
3rd : Ask questions
4th : Reread
This term, our topic is “Superheroes”. We are enjoying spending time in our superhero role play and small world areas creating lots of exciting stories. We are learning all about the real superheroes in our lives such as doctors, nurses, fire fighters etc.
Our PE days are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure your child has a PE kit with labelled clothes.
A lot of you have already brought wellington boots in for your children, thank you! It would be wonderful if your child could bring wellies from home so that they can wear them when we go out onto the field on those rainy days. We have a rack so that they can keep them in school.
This year, I will be setting small homework tasks every Friday via Google Classroom. We will be setting this up over the next week or so and will be sure to send home your login details. Once you have these details, please make sure you log on as soon as possible so that if there are any issues, we can address them quickly.
Thank you and we are looking forward to a fun-filled year!
Miss Williams, Mrs Phillips and Mrs Ferryman
