Mrs Harry's Class 2017 - 2018

Mrs Harry

Welcome back.

I hope that you all had a lovely Easter and are ready for the new term. This term we are going to be looking at the seaside as our topic.

In English we will be focusing on increasing our writing stamina, through lots of story writing.  We will also be writing instructions for seaside themed projects, along with letters and postcards.  

Firstly we will be recapping and polishing our skills at writing traditional tales.  We will use the story of the Three Little Pigs, retelling and then innovating the story to create our own version.

Later in the summer term there will be the phonics test, so there will be a big focus again this term as we continue to practise all of the sounds in both real and alien words.  We ask that the children continue to practise these at home as well in order to give them the best chance at passing the test.

In maths we will continue to focus on place value and we will be reviewing our learning so far, using the skills and knoweledge we have learnt to help us with addition and subtraction with 2  and 3 digit numbers up to 125. We will then move on to some work with measurement, money and time.

Snacks:

Please can we remind parents that if you wish to provide a break time snack for your child it should be a healthy choice and not chocolate, sweets or crisps. Toast is available should you wish your child to have this instead which you can order online or via the office on a termly basis.  There is always fruit available if your child forgets their snack. 

PE:

PE sessions will be on a Tuesday afternoon, but please ensure that their PE kit (with outdoor and indoor kit) is available in school every day as we sometimes have to change our time slot.

Kit: Pumps or Trainers, black track suit bottoms or shorts (weather dependent), yellow school t-shirt and black jumper.

Reading:

Please read with your child daily as this will have an impact on all areas of their learning.  They have a planner that you can date and record their reading in.  You may wish to write a comment but please do not feel that you have to.

If you wish to pass on a message to your child’s teacher, please feel free to write it in their planner but please ask your child to take it to their teacher as we do not always check the planners every day.

Spellings:

This term we have made the decision as  Key Stage 1 team to return to sending 6 spellings a week home for the children to learn.  They will be tested on a Thursday with a new set of spellings being sent home on a friday.

If you have any questions relating to any aspect of school life please do not hesitate in contacting me or coming to see me. Please feel free to come in and talk to me preferably at the end of the school day.
