Easter Holiday Challenges 

 

Here are some Easter challenges to entertain you whilst we follow the #stayathome guidance. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Welcome Butterfly Class

Hello and welcome to the Butterfly class. Helping the children with their learning this year is Mrs Hill (Class Teacher). In addition, we also have help from our wonderful Teaching Assistants, Mrs Page,  Mrs Corey and Mrs Axworthy. 

 

P.E

 

Please note that we have PE on a Wednesday and Friday,  so please remember to dress your child in their PE kit on these days. Please ensure your child has their coloured PE top, PE hoodie,  black bottoms, hair tied up and jewellery removed on these days so that they are ready and safe to take part. Thank you for your cooperation. 

 

Forest School

 

On your child's forest school day, please ensure they arrive at school in suitable clothing. We are able to provide the children with a waterproof suit and wellington boots to wear over their clothes. We ask that their uniform be in a bag for them to change into when they return from for forest school. Thank you for your cooperation.    

 

 

  


 

SPRING TERM 2

 

Foundation

This term, our theme is 'changes.'  As we  into spring, we will observe seasonal changes, investigate life cycles and growth and decay. In Storytelling session, we will begin learning 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff.'  We will create a story map, and learn to write simple sentences to describe the troll. He likes to wonder about so look out for our wanted posters.  To link with our topic of changes,  we will also learn the story of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' written by Eric Carle.   The learning environment will continue to reflect the children's interests and all areas of the EYFS curriculum in which they need to develop skills.  We will continue to identify next steps in learning. For more information on other subjects, please find the topic overview a the bottom of the page.

Year One

We will continue to learn more about 'The Great Fire of London'. In History, the children will learn how London changed as a result of the 'great fire'.  In storytelling, we will be making links to our Science topic by learning the story 'Monkeys in Hats'.  We will innovate our own version of the tale and investigate the best material for a hat based on its properties. 

In Maths, we will learning to measure weight, height and length.  For more information on other subjects, please find the topic overview a the bottom of the page.

HOMEWORK

 

 

For foundation, we ask that you read with your child for 10 minutes EVERY night.  Please ensure you (or your child) place the book in the reading box so it can be changed. Thank you.

 

For Year One, homework will consist of spellings to practise for a test on the following Friday and Fantastic Facts maths work which helps recall and speed. The spellings are linked to the Year 1 National Curriculum. Please ensure you also read with your child for 10 minutes EVERY night. 

 

READING

Year One and Foundation

 

Children should bring in their reading records every day and are encouraged to read every night at home. Please do encourage your child to read at home, it'll only take 5 to 10 minutes and makes a tremendous difference to their confidence and attainment in class!  The reading book you receive will be in line with your child's reading ability.  The children are assessed regularly and book levels are set accordingly.   Books will only be changed if the reading record has been signed by an adult at home.  Thank you for your cooperation.

STAR OF THE WEEK

Star of the Week will be awarded to a different child every Friday afternoon for being a superstar all week! It could be for their attitude to learning, behaviour or producing outstanding work (to name a few!). They will then take home the class bear for the weekend and write about their adventures in our class book. Who will be the first star of the week this year?
