Orange Class 2017 - 2018

Mrs Swallow

Orange Class Teacher

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 childrenaccess 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 learning about Dinosaurs (please see the topic web for more information)!


Snacks – Please send snack in a SMALL container or just with their name on. 

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, 10 minutes a day really does make all the difference. Please write in child’s reading diary so that they can move across the ‘dinosaur feet’. Books will be changed on a Monday and a Thursday. 


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


Homework – In orange class the children will be given weekly homework. In their homework books there is a list of homework that will be given out throughout the half term. It is all based on our topic - Dinosaurs! Homework and spellings will not start until next week!


PE and outdoor learning - PE will be on a Tuesday and outdoor learning will be on a Wednesday. Please ensure PE bags and Forest School bags (with wellies and waterproofs)are back in school and named.


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. Let’s get started on a great year!
