Hello, my name is Mrs Issat and I am the class teacher. We also have Mrs Gilibrand and Mrs Shirazi working with us.
We are all very excited to be welcoming the children back to school and have exciting things planned!
Spring 2 Information:
This half term we are thinking about the question:
'Why do ladybirds have spots?'
This term we will be exploring different minibeasts in class and outside in our Forest School. We will look at different minibeasts and facts about them. At the end of ther term we will make our own non fiction book all about the different minibeasts we have been looking at. We will be working hard to make our sentences better by using descriptive words. We will also be working hard to improve our handwriting by doing lots of practice in class. We will be exploring different books in Guided Reading and talking about the different features of a non fiction book.
This term we will be exploring our Forest School. In Forest School we will be doing lots of exciting activities to help us learn about minibeasts and their habitats. We will also be doing lots of planting and making our very own wands to cast spells!
In Maths we will be busy counting forwards and backwards to 30 and practise writing our numbers. We will also be looking at addition and subtraction and practising writing our number sentences. We will be looking at patterns of different minibeasts and have a go to create our own. We will also be looking money and the value of coins.
How you can help at home :)
Read with your child every night, talk through and discuss the story and characters.
Counting regularly with your child, both forwards and backwards. If they read every night they will get dojos in school as a reward.
Ask your child about their day, we do lots of different activities throughout the day and they will love to share.
Ensure your child's book bag is in school everyday.
Complete the homework given out on a Friday with them, this reflects the learning throughout the week.
Please use the handwriting sheet given on Parent's Evening to practise handwriting daily with your child at home. If you would like a sheet please ask at the door.
Please ensure your child brings in their book bag every day. Also make sure that you check these bags every night for any messages or letters that might have been given out.
Please can you make sure that you label all of your child’s clothes, this includes all parts of their uniform, PE kits, coats and shoes, as this helps us to find the owner of the item much faster!! We have PE on Wednesdays, please ensure your child's PE kit is in school.
You will receive newsletters and information from school regularly, however, if you have and questions or queries please do not hesitate to speak to me.
