Welcome to our class page.
Autumn 1 Update 2021
Our topic this half term is 'God's Great Plan'. The children will learn about the beauty of God’s world and explore and respond to the wonders of creation. They will also hear about the story of Creation from Genesis and talk about its meaning. They will be reflecting on the knowledge that God made us because he loves us and develop their understanding that we show God we love him by looking after the world and each other. They will learn that we can spoil God’s creation and that we have a responsibility to look after it, as well as hearing an appropriate part of the story of Noah and the Flood and its message of salvation, hope and trust.
During this half-term we will be looking at a variety of books. These include: Tuesday and Puffin Peter. We will be having a large emphasis on writing single clauses ensuring correct punctuation and finger spaces are used.
In Maths we are developing our understanding of place value, counting forwards and backwards, comparing quantities and developing our number formation (working with numbers from 0-20). We have found lots of interesting ways to represent different numbers using classroom objects, resources and written methods e.g bead strings, unifix cubes and tally marks. We will move on to addition and subtraction skills and consolidate our number bonds to 10.
Please read at home with your child and sign the reading record when you have read. Regrettably, we are unable to change school reading books until the previous books have been returned and the reading record is signed.
Reading books will be allocated on a Monday to read throughout the week. These need to be handed back in on a Friday, ready for new books to be given the following Monday. Bugclub is to be used for reading over the weekends.
Homework will be sent out via Google Classroom every Thursday and is due in the following Thursday.
P.E. and Forest School Days
Our P.E. days are Monday and Friday. P.E. kits should be kept in school at all times. We will send them home over the school holidays. All long hair needs to be tied back.
Our Forest School day is Friday. Children will have a session once a fortnight. Please make sure that they have the appropriate named kit in school.
When children arrive in the morning they are expected to say goodbye to their parents on the playground. The children then come into class and change out of their coats and outdoor shoes and put away their book bags, water bottles and lunch boxes. Once their belongings are away the children go to their places where they complete early morning work. At 8:45 the classroom door is closed and registration is taken, finishing with morning prayer. Any child arriving after 8:45 must enter school through the Main Reception Area where a late slip must be completed.
