Orange Class 2020 - 2021

Miss Addis

Orange Class Teacher

Dear Oranges,

Welcome back from another lockdown! Firstly, I would like to say a huge thank you to all for your ongoing support throughout this time and to thank you for everything that you have done to support the transition from school to home learning and now ironically back to school again. It has truly been a roller coaster of a year so far, but you have ridden the wave and triumphed.

This term, we will be continuing our topic of ‘If you go down to the woods today’. We will be learning about traditional tales and incorporating this theme through a cross curricular approach in music, forest school and much more! Our first week of learning is based on the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’. We will be learning the story, creating wanted posters, undertaking drama activities, and creating our own houses for the Three Little Pigs in the outdoor area. In maths we will be learning about height and length and using non-standard units of measurement. This will be lots of hands-on activities allowing the children to develop a concept of how tall something is and compare It to another object.

Reading - We will start a new reward system for reading. If the children read 5 times in a week they will get a sticker on a special bookmark, once the bookmark is full they will receive 5 dojos! As diaries, reading books and book bags will not be taken to and from school for the next two weeks to try to minimise risk; it will be the children’s responsibility to move themselves up on the reading stars, if they have read at home (they made need a prompt as you drop them off in the morning!) Please read anything you have at home or utilise resources from . In school the children will read everyday in whole class reading and once a week in guided reading.

Spellings –Children will be given weekly spellings to learn via TEAMS on a Friday, you do not need to upload anything to teams, please practise at home either in your spelling book or a note pad. We will then check these spellings in school the following Friday. This will commence the second week back after half term.

Homework –Homework will be set via TEAMs which I am sure we are all used to by now! Please upload your child’s work onto teams. This will be instead of sending home the children’s homework books. This will commence the second week back after half term.

PE and outdoor learning - PE will be on a Tuesday morning. Please can children come in PE kits on these days.

Forest school- Forest school for Orange Class will start on Wednesday for four weeks. If on any other occasion, like last term if we have outdoor learning on any other day, I will let you know via text/email.

If there is anything more I can do to support you, or if you have any questions please email me.

Kindest regards,

Beth Addis and Julie Howard
