Welcome to Class 1!
Summer Term 2020
Dear Class 1,
I hope that you are all well and enjoying this fabulous weather! The pictures that I have seen of you on Tapestry so far have been amazing and look like you are having lots of fun!
The summer term is going to be a slightly unusual one for us all. We are not sure yet when school will open so everyone is going to need to try really hard to do a little work at home, have lots of fun with your family, play games and get some exercise. Most importantly we want you to stay safe at home and look after each other.
You can email anytime with any worries that you may have or even if you just want to say hello! - through Purplemash or to email@example.com
Each week I will post a new plan with your work for the week. Do what you can and don’t worry if activities don’t get completed. Parents if you can think of any other way to achieve the same outcome then please do so - your home schooling ideas on Tapestry so far have been fantastic!
Reception you can use your new exercise book to complete any activities from any subject. I am sure you will all do your best. I know some of you will have very busy parents who are also working so don’t worry if they find it tricky helping you - have patience and do not worry in the slightest if activities do not get completed!
Believe in yourself, enjoy yourself and be proud of yourself through this tricky time!
Trust me when I say I cannot wait to see you all very soon!
Take care everybody 😊
Have a look at the pictures on the slideshow of what we get up to! Information about what we are learning can be found under the slideshow.
In Class 1 we have 3 members of staff working with the children at any one time. Mrs Williamson is our class teacher, Miss Bell is our nursery teaching assistant, Miss Barber is our teaching assistant in the mornings and Miss Byers is our teaching assistant in the afternoons.
Below is some extra information about different people that visit us each week to help us learn:
During Phonics we will be split into groups. Mrs Williamson will be teaching the Reception phonics through a variety of active and non-active games. Miss Bell will be working with our Pre-School children to help them learn the basic sounds.
Mrs Thornton will be teaching us RE and Computing on a Tuesday afternoon. During Computing we will be learning about how to be safe when exploring the internet and using technology.
We use an online learning journal called 'Tapestry'. The teachers will add observations and pictures to children's learning journeys but if they have done something amazing that you wish to share you will be able to log in to you child's journal and upload it. Please speak to Mrs Williamson if you have any questions or problems logging in to Tapestry.
Keep your eyes peeled for more updates from Class 1 as we continue our adventure together.
