This year the Foxes are being taught by Miss Miller (Class Teacher). Miss Butcher is our fantastic Teaching Assistant and she is in class with us everyday. We are very friendly and invite you to pop in for a chat if you have any queries or concerns - the classroom door is open from 8.30am everyday and Miss Miller will be available to speak to until the bell goes at 8.40am!
We are kicking off the year with a whole school topic of 'Health and Happiness'. We will be learning all about how to keep our bodies healthy, taking part in lots of fun PE activities as well as thinking about how to keep our minds happy and calm too. Foxes are going to work especially hard on our handwriting this term and will be practising every day. In maths, we will be looking at place value. This means we will be working out the value of every digit in a number, investigating number patterns and ordering numbers.
PE is every Wednesday and Friday. All children should have full PE kit in school every day. PE kit should include: house colour t-shirt, shorts or jogging bottoms, trainers or plimsolls.
Homework will be sent home every Wednesday and is due back the following Monday. Homework will consist of 7 weekly spellings as well as some maths or grammar practise.
All children should bring their Reading Record back into school every day as we use these in our Guided Reading lessons. It is important that the children read regularly at home as well as at school, recording their efforts in their Reading Records, to be checked in class.
Children should also bring a bag/ book bag into school everyday. This encourages the children to be more independent and organise their belongings, as well as transport letters and homework back and forth without them being lost or damaged.
