Mrs Stephenson (Tuesday and Wednesday)
Welcome to Leopards Class! I hope you had a wonderful and restful summer and are ready for another fantastic year of learning.
In each term, your child will be following exciting and engaging topics. Our topic this term is an author study, looking at Eric Carle, famous for writing and illustrating ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. We will be reading this and other books by him. For more information about our learning please see the attached Topic Web.
Our PE sessions will be outdoors on a Monday and indoors on a Wednesday. Please ensure that your children have labelled PE kit in school for these sessions, including long trousers and a jumper for our outdoor sessions as it will quickly get colder!
Homework will be set on Google Classroom on a Monday, focusing on maths and reading. You should receive an invitation to join the Leopards google class so that you can see all assignments which are set on there. You can then upload pictures of the work your child has done as evidence of their learning. Please do let me know if there are any issues with this.
Reading books will be set and changed each Thursday, which are linked to our Rocket Phonics scheme. Please read with your child as often as you can – we recommend daily for 5-10 minutes. While reading, you can support your child to sound out and blend the words, as well as asking questions about the story to check their understanding and relate the story to their own experience.
I hope this answers any questions you may have. I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful class and see how your children will learn and grow throughout the year!
