Squirrels

Good morning Squirrels! I hope you are wide awake and ready to enjoy a day of school work in your pyjamas. 

 

Once you have completed it, I would love to see what you have done. We now have a class email so you can send me some photos or files of things you have done. You can also send me a message if you need some support or guidance.

Please send to this email address: squirrels@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

 

Look after yourselves and keep checking back here each morning for your daily learning. 

Stay amazing!

 

 

Welcome to The Squirrels Class!

 

Hello, I'm Mrs Duddridge (the class teacher) and our wonderful teaching assistant is Miss Stacey. We are also joined by Miss Banks-Bunnett who is an apprentice and will work across the three classes in KS1. 

We are here to support your children and make them flourish in all areas of their learning. If there is anything you are worried about at home or want us to help you with then please just ask us on the door, or if you want any more help then I will meet with you after school. 

We look forward to having a brilliant year with you all! smiley

Important notices

 

  • Our class PE day is a Friday. Please ensure your child comes to school wearing their full P.E kit. Normal school uniform is to be worn for the rest of the week. 

Curriculum

 

 

 

Homework and home learning 

 

Children will bring home their reading books everyday. Please remember to sign their reading diaries to show us they have read with you. We encourage the children to read at home for 5-10 minutes a night. The children are prompted to change their reading books as often as possible as reading can make a tremendous difference to their confidence and attainment in class. 

 

Each week the children will bring home spellings to learn. The spellings are currently linked to Year 1 & 2 common exception spellings set by the National Curriculum. Spellings will be sent home every Friday and the children will be tested on the following Friday. Please encourage your child to practise daily and orally test them as much as you can. We want all of the children to be able to spell the word using the letter names rather than the sounds they make. Some children still need to practise decoding the words you say on their own (independently). 

 

Children will also bring maths homework. They will be given Fantastic Facts and a Times Table sheet (flying). The children are encouraged to learn their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables by the time they leave Year 2. The Times Table sheet tests their fluency of being able to answer a series of questions in a set amount of time. We have named each 'station' a different country name. For example, The United Kingdom is for 2 and 10 times tables, France is 2 and 5 times tables and Spain is 3 and 5 times tables, etc. We have specific lessons teaching them how multiplication works and is useful and relevant in their daily lives. 

If you would like any blank sheets feel free to pop in and let me know.
