Friday 18th September
Another week has flown by and the children have started working in their English and Maths books. I have noticed that a lot of children are not forming some letters and numbers correctly, so this is something to work on. I have included this in the weekly homework bulletin (below). The bulletin gives you some ideas of ways to support your child at home, based on what we have been learning in school that week. It will be available on the website and emailed to you as well.
A big thank you to all the parents who were extremely efficient and checked the website last week and sent baby photos to the class email - I intended to send a text out but I didn't need to! (Please don't worry if you didn't send one as the children had fun looking at photos of their friends as babies.) Perhaps this week you could talk to your child about the toys you liked to play with as a child and send a picture, as toys will be our next history focus. If you can get grandparents involved too, that would be great!
Friday 11th September
What a great first week we have had! All the children have settled really well into Year 1 and begun to embrace the new challenges. Over the next couple of weeks during history lessons we will be looking at how the children have changed since they were babies. It would be helpful to look at some photos, so please email a photo of your child as a baby to the class email address at your earliest convenience: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Welcome to Oak Class!
I met most of the new Oak Class either in person or via Zoom in July. It was great meeting you all!
My name is Miss Stokes and I am your Year 1 teacher. Sometimes we will also have Mrs Hilson in our classroom to help you with your learning.
I am really excited to see you all on Monday 7th September and to begin our new learning adventure. I have been working hard to think of ways to make the classroom look a little bit more like your reception room so that you feel comfortable, but it is much smaller!
We are going to have fun learning phonics, reading, writing, maths, science, art, and lots more! You will be able to play with your friends and enjoy investigating and exploring together. Every Thursday you will have a P.E. afternoon with Mr Parker - remember to have your P.E. kit in school (ALL named please!) I know that you are going to work hard and always try your best, and I promise to do the same!
