Hello! My name is Mrs Hill and I am the class teacher in Willow Class. We are very lucky to have Mrs Slater working with us to help us with our learning and we are looking forward to welcoming the children into Year 1.
Our exciting topic for this half term is ...
Please ensure that your child's book bag is in school every day. Please read with your child every night and discuss what you have read. You do not need to read the whole book at once. Reading books will be changed three times a week but only if your child has had two good reads of their book.
Some activities you can do to support reading and understanding are...
* Act out the story
* Use expression
* Retell the story without the reading book
* Do a word hunt
* Be digraph detectives
* Ask your child to try and change the story slightly
Homework will be given out every Friday. The homework will reflect on the children's learning throughout the week. Please ensure homework is handed back in on Thursday to ensure new homework can be given out on the Friday.
Please make sure that every piece of clothing your child brings into school has their name clearly on it. This is to ensure if any clothing does get lost or misplaced it can be easily returned.
We have two P.E. sessions every week, including a FUNDA session with a specialist teacher. One is on Wednesday and one is on Thursday and P.E. kits will be sent home at the end of every half term to be washed. Please ensure that they are back in school ready for the first week back.
