Class 1: EYFS

Welcome to Class 1!

 

Class 1 Home Learning

 

Your child will be bringing home a home learning pack. This pack includes 3 exercise books, 4 sets of word cards, sound mats, a pack of reading books and some additional printed resources for phonics, writing and Maths. 

 

An outline for the week with daily tasks and specific activities for each of the days will be upload on here under the week subheadings. This may require the children to record in the exercise books or booklets that have been sent home, be set on Mathletics or be a practical task. Under the PE, UTW (Understanding the World) and Creative activities heading will be a range of other activities that is linked to our current topic (Dinosaur Discovery and then Easter). 

 

The daily tasks are really important and we urge you to complete these as they are quick and probably part of your normal routine anyway such as reading, phonics sounds and number recall. There are then English and Maths tasks for each day - please complete as much as possible. I have tried to balance them out so if there is a bigger Maths task then the English is less and vice versa. If you want more activities or some games, I have include a list of links that have all different resources on. The other activities are free choice but we would encourage one of each UTW, PE and Creative across the week this may be based on activities you have chosen at home or from the list of ideas I have included. 

 

Please use Tapestry to share what the children have been up to. You can add photos, videos and comments that we can read and respond to. Seeing what the children have been up to will also help me to plan tasks for the following weeks and it would be great to see what they are up to!

 

How to upload to Tapestry: 

Choose the ‘Add Observation’ option (or the ‘plus’ icon on your iphone/ipad) and add the relevant information into the boxes on the screen. Photos and videos may be uploaded by choosing the ‘add media’ option. When you have saved your observation, you may go back to the home screen at any time by choosing the ‘Obs’ tab or clicking on the logo (on the cloud, top left corner).

 

We will be checking emails so please email me at C1@longborough.gloucs.sch.uk if you have any questions or queries. 

 

Thank you for your continued support with your child's education. We all appreciate that there will be some difficult times ahead and we hope that you will keep in contact with us so we can support you as required. 

 

Best wishes, 

Miss Georgina Holder 

Class 1 Spring Term


Our whole school theme is ‘What a Wonderful World’ and our topic in Class One is Dinosaur Discovery. 

 

Each term we focus on a Christian Value in our daily Worship and link it where appropriate to other areas of our learning. Our focus this term is 'Forgiveness'. 

 

Throughout the week, I will be leading and teaching Class 1 and Little Pickles with the assistance of Miss Chammy Mountford and Ms Becky Gorton, our teaching assistants. On Monday and Thursday afternoons, Mrs Simone Hourihan (our Class 3 teacher) will be teaching in Class 1. Every Friday morning, our specialist Forest School teacher, Mrs Ellen Swayne, will be in charge of the class and lead our main Forest School Session until lunchtime. 

Day to Day Essentials:

As part of the Early Years curriculum, we encourage the children to use our outside area and the field as part of their learning in all weathers. Please ensure that the children have PE kits, wellies and coats in school every day. 

 

It is always useful to provide a spare pair of underwear in the children's PE or book bag in case of any accidents, you may also wish to provide a spare pair of trousers/skirt to change into. We will speak to you at the end of the day discretely and return any washing to you in a carrier bag if needed. 

 

PE: 

On Monday afternoons, Mrs Hourihan and Mrs Hobkirk will be teaching PE in Class One. All children should have their PE kits in school everyday, as we may do other physical development activities that require PE kit through out the week. 

 

Forest School: 

The children will be participating in Forest School and outdoor learning in our wonderful grounds whatever the weather. Please ensure that your child always has wellies, a warm jumper and a waterproof coat in school for these sessions. We have school waterproof leggings/dungarees and waterproof coats available so that all of the children can participate without getting cold or wet. 

 

 

 

I look forward to seeing you on Friday mornings and working closely with you this year. Please don’t hesitate to pop in and speak to me or arrange a meeting

May Day celebrations

We made houses for Jack and his Mother to live in.  Unfortunately the giant came along and had an almighty  sneeze.  Luckily, we had thought carefully about what materials to make our houses from in order that they could withstand a giant's sneeze.  As is tradition in a fairy tale, there was a happy end and all of the houses stayed fully intact.
