Class Information

Class Teacher: Miss Kennedy

NCC cover Thurdsay morning: Mr Martindale

(PE/Health and Maths)

Gym Days

Planned gym days are Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning, However, as this has to be outdoor at the moment this is not always possible and we will take children outside another day instead when we can.

It is helpful if children are suitable dressed for outdoor PE every day.

Numeracy Learning

We have been focusing on revising previous learning in addition and subtraction to 20, Number Talks, Big Maths Beat That and learning in time including days, months and reading calendars.  We will soon be moving on to place value in numbers to 1000.

Mr Martindale is teaching 2D and 3D shape.

Literacy Learning

Spelling has been introduced with several related activities throughout the week.  Pupils have picked up where they left off on the Jolly Spelling programme.

Jolly Grammar has been picked up from where the children stopped last year.  The children have learned the actions for verbs, nouns, proper nouns, adjectives, adverbs and pronouns.

Writing

We have been focusing on describing characters to encourage children to include more detail and write longer pieces of text.  We will move on to describing settings before developing stories.

Comprehension

In class comprehension will be taught as a whole class using appropriate texts.  Your child may also have reading tasks related to their weekly reading books.

Homework

While the weather is still reasonably good, we are introducing homework gradually.  Your child will have reading homework on a Monday, they will have the book until a Friday morning.  Please hear your child read as frequently as possible and ask questions about/discuss the story to ensure understanding.

Spelling activities are being completed in school at the moment however when spelling homework is given, there will be a letter provided to explain the tasks.

Maths homework has not yet been set.

Health and Wellbeing

It has been very important to include lots of learning in this area after our long break away from school due to Covid 19.  Children have had lots of opportunities to discuss and record their worries and best memories during their time away from school and any worries on their return.

We have been learning about being Bucket filler – please ask your child about this, revising our learning about feelings and how to control them in PATHS, participating in lots of Mindfulness activities and learning about Growth Mindset.  We have enjoyed Mojo’s videos on moods and attitudes and stretching our brain to learn new things.
