Orange Class 2017 - 2018

Mrs Swallow

Orange Class Teacher

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a magical Christmas and that the children are rested and ready for another exciting term in Orange Class.

This term our topic is ‘To Infinity and Beyond’ (please see our topic web for more information.

Reading - We will read with your child as much as we can during the week. It is vital that you continue to read at home too - 10 minutes a day will make all the difference. You were amazing last half term so keep up the great work Also, if there are any parents/grandparents that would like to come in to hear readers we are always extremely grateful.

Spellings will continue like last half term. Some spellings may be the same but practice makes perfect. Please remember spelling books on a Friday.

Phonics As we get closer to the phonics screening test you will notice that some of the children’s spellings and some homework is phonics based. More homework will be centered around phonics as we get closer to the screening test.

Homework weekly homework is now in the homework book.

PE PE will be on a Tuesday.

There will be no weekly outdoor learning, however, please bring wellies and forest schools bags in anyway as some of our lessons will be outside, just not on the same day every week. Children will be able to come in their school uniform everyday. I will send texts/emails if this is different.

The children are also preparing for Barnaby Bear in Space this half term, more details to come. Finally, please make sure uniform and snacks are labeled.

I love this term in Year 1; it is one of my favourites. The children are settled and ready to make more exciting steps in their development. The sky is the limit- to infinity and beyond!
