Welcome to our Class Blog!

Each week we will share highlights from our learning and messages for the class.
What a fantastic start the children have made!

All members of staff have been so proud of how well the children have settled into their new learning environment.

This week we have been learning new routines in school and making new friends. We have also being talking about our families. It would be wonderful if you can send a picture of your family for the children to share in class.

At lunch times children have been partnered up with a ‘lunch time buddy’ from Class 4. The older children have been great at helping with choosing food and showing them what we do at lunch times.

We have also had our very first PE lesson with Mrs Sharp where we had lots of fun dancing with Pompoms. Please remember our PE lesson is on Wednesday so children need to come to school in PE kit on this day. Children will also need to bring in their drinks bottle daily filled with only water.

You may have heard your children mention ‘merits’ at home. Merits are given out to children who show good behaviour, hard work and kindness to others. Children can collect merits to choose a treat from our merit catalogue.

We have also started our Read, Write, Inc. phonics lessons. Children have begun to learn our initial sounds. More information about this will be updated on our class page soon. It will show you how we teach phonics in school and ways in which you can support your child at home.

We would love to share photos on your children on our class page. Please send in consent forms if you prefer not to have your child’s picture used. If you do not return your form it will be presumed that you give consent for photos to be shared online.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask any member of the Class 1 team. This can be either in person at collection times or ring the school office and we can arrange a time to speak.

Thank you
