Welcome to Class 1! In our class the Teachers are Miss Owen and Mrs. Renison (on a Wednesday)
and our Learning Support Assistants are
Mrs. Doran and Mrs. Mullane (1-1 support)
Welcome back to all of the class 1 children. We hope you all had a restful and enjoyable Christmas break and you are all ready for an exciting new term. This week we have been getting back into the school routine and learning lots of new things through our play. We have looked at the traditional tale 'Jack and the Beanstalk' and discussed the length and height of objects around our class. We also noticed that traditional tales often start with the words 'Once upon a time' and end with 'Happily ever after'. Perhaps, there are some traditional tales at home that you could read together? We also started our Happy Hedgehog P.E. lessons again today and had great fun playing with the parachute.
Miss Owen says 'I am very grateful for all your exceptionally generous gifts, you are so thoughtful and I am overwhelmed, thank you very much. Also many thanks for all the lovely cards and kind words.'
Mrs Doran says 'I am overwhelmed with your kindness and I am looking forward to going out with Miss Owen shopping to spend my voucher. Thank you!'
Mrs. Mullane says 'Thank you very much for your generous gifts I am overwhelmed by your generosity.'
Mrs. Renison says 'A very big thank you for the lovely cards and gifts.'
The children have now received a reading book and reading record book.
We will conduct a guided reading session using these reading books everyday. Therefore, your child needs to bring their books everyday in their book bag.
The children will change their books once a week with their teacher and when this is done the teachers will write a note in their reading record book. Please feel free to make a comment in response to the teacher each week if you would like to.
Please continue to regularly read and enjoy lots of other stories and other types of books at home with your child in order to help them to understand about characters, settings and main events.
Happy Reading Everyone!!
We will attempt to send home small tasks for the children to complete at home every Friday. Please return the completed work in their home learning folder on a Monday. If you are unable to complete the tasks over the weekend please return the folder and we will add the new pieces and return it to you so that you can complete the outstanding pieces at your earliest convenience.
We will look at your child's work and it will be kept in the home learning folder so that you can return to it throughout the weeks to practise the skills learned.
