Welcome to our Class 1 page. Here you will find information about our term including useful dates, timetable outlines and our term's topic. Photos and videos are regularly uploaded onto the page so please be sure to take a look every now and then to see what fun adventures we have been up to.
Every morning, Class 1 are taught by Miss Ella Hewitt. On a Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoon the children are taught by Mrs Alexandra Norburn-Walker. On a Wednesday afternoon children take part in a creative curriculum session. Creative curriculum groups change each term so please speak to your child's class teacher to find out which group they are in.
New for this term, class 1 will be starting forest school on a Friday afternoon with Mrs Swayne, a specially trained forest school teacher.
Our afternoon timetable this term is as follows:
Monday - Topic
Tuesday - Understanding the World
Wednesday - Creative Curriculum (see schedule)
Thursday - PE
Friday - Forest School
To help with the transition into school life, we offer a staggered entry for all reception children. For the first two weeks children will be in school from 8:35 - 12pm, the third week children are invited to stay for lunch so pick up time will be 1pm. Your child has a peg all ready for them in their new cloakroom. Please ensure to bring in your child's PE kit (this can be kept at school), a coat, a pair of wellies, a bookbag and a water bottle. Please make sure everything is clearly labelled.
On Friday mornings you are invited to come in and take a look at the work your child has been doing that week from 8.35 - 9am. We ask that you leave promptly at 9am so that your child can settle and the learning can get underway.
If there is anything we can help you with please feel free to come in and speak to us. If it is a serious issue we may schedule an after school appointment as things are a little less hectic at this time.
A class letter with more information will be sent out as the term gets started so keep an eye out for this via your email. We look forward to getting to know you and your little one as the term progresses.
If you have any questions, please feel free to speak to either of us directly, or make an appointment with the school office.
Miss Hewitt and Mrs Norburn-Walker
Please help your child to verbally learn their spellings by Friday each week. The spellings selected will coincide with the phonic sounds we are learning at school each week. Spellings can also be found displayed in the classroom on the wall by my desk.
Your child will not be expected to write their spellings, instead I would like your child to be able to verbally segment each spelling into its individual graphemes e.g. the word 'main' would be broken into the graphemes m-ai-n.
This week's spellings are:
RE - 'I can share times when I have felt special in my life.'
Class One have been thinking about people/times/places/things that make us feel special. Below is an example of some of the lovely ideas they shared.
