Dear Parents,

It is my pleasure to welcome the children, and you, to Orange Class. This year will be a wonderful year full of learning and fun, not to mention a year of change for your children as they move from the Foundation Stage into Year 1. The exciting and challenging curriculum in Year 1 will give the children access to a variety of different experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. 

This year we have got lots of exciting topics planned, where the children will build on a love for learning and make more magical memories. We are starting our journey with our topic ‘Big, Scary; Wild, Hairy’!  Please see the topic web for more information. (It will be on the website once we have returned to school).

Snacks – Please send snack in a SMALL container or just with your child’s name on. If your child has toast money, please ensure it is in a named wallet or purse.

Reading  - We will read with your child each week during individual reading and guided reading sessions. Reading is such a vital part of your child’s learning so please continue to read at home with the children. Ten minutes a day really does make all the difference. Please write in child’s reading diary so that they can move across the ‘big feet’. Books will be changed on a Monday. Children will have four books for the week. Therefore, to read 5 times a week, each child should be aiming to read four school books plus a book from home - or their favorite school book again! 

Spellings – Children will be given weekly spellings to learn. These will be given out on a Friday. The children will be quizzed on them the following Friday. Please ensure that spelling books are in school every Friday. 

Homework – In orange class, the children will have weekly homework. We will stick in the homework sheets into their homework books this week. There is one piece of homework for each week. However you are welcome to do them in any order you please. Homework will be checked when the children put their homework book in the tray. 

PE and outdoor learning - PE will be on a Tuesday morning and outdoor learning will be on a Friday. Please ensure PE bags and Forest School bags (with wellies and waterproofs) are in school and named at the start of term. 

Helpers – if you are able and would like to come into help hear readers then please let me know which day you are able to help. Your support would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Finally, please put your child’s name on ALL of their belongings! 

In advance, I would like to thank all parents and guardians for your support, enthusiasm and most importantly thank you for trusting me with your amazing children.

So today, let’s start something new. A brand new orange year. #Adventure is out there!
