Please see attached the timetable for Show and Tell next half term. The theme is 'My Favourite Book'. This will give the children a chance to talk about their favourite book, which can be fiction or non-fiction.
We have had a wonderful day celebrating Harvest. We made leaf crowns with the leaves we collected earlier in the week and we ate the soup that we made yesterday.
This week is the turn of Elowen W, Elowen C, Elsie, Fletcher H and Charlie G. The children can bring in something they would like to show the class and we will send it home on Friday.
This week we are going to be making vegetable soup, making harvest crowns and then having a bit of a Harvest celebration on Thursday. We have been learning a song and hope to be able to record us singing it and share with you on here. The children do not need to bring anything in but if you do have a spare bit of veg we would be very grateful.
Show and Tell
Next week it is the turn of Josselin, Martha, Chase, Aiden and Zenara. Please send the items in on Monday and we will store them safely until Friday.
Year 1 and Year 2 Spelling
To help the children learn the spellings we have put together a spelling menu which we have stuck in their homework books. The activities on the menu are a fun way of practising spellings. If the children come up with new ideas we would love to hear them. We have also changed how we test spellings, from next week we will be doing a pre test on Monday and then a test on Friday. This is so that the children can aim to beat their own score.
Thank you so much to you all for helping your children with their reading at home. Ordinarily we would have volunteers in to hear the children read but this is not possible given the current situation. We listen to the children read once a week on Thursday afternoon or Friday morning and change their books. This is the only time the children need to have their reading folders in school. If a children has read their book several times at home we will provide two books the following week. Don't forget to fill in the reading Karate sheet at the front of the reading record.
This week is the turn of Grace, Amber, Lola, Beth and Charlie T.
Your child should now have a Reading Karate record sheet in their reading record. Every time they read with you please fill in the sheet. A member of staff will then counter sign it once they have checked there is a reading record entry for that date.
Your child should have brought home a letter about balance bike training. Please complete and return tomorrow (Tuesday 6th)
Show and Tell
Next week the children who are invited to bring something in for Show and Tell are; Louie, Olivia, April, Amelia and Oliver. This half term the children can choose anything, next half term there will be a theme. Please send the item in to school on Monday and we will store it safely and send it home on Friday.
We will only be listening to the children read and changing books on Thursdays and Fridays therefore could we ask that they are only sent in on those days. This is to avoid unnecessary transmission between school and home. Children who read the complete book at home more than once will be given two books from next week.
The first spelling test for Year 1 and Year 2 will take place on Monday and will be the words from the Week 1 column.
If you are out and about this weekend and would like to collect some brown leaves we would be very grateful as we need some for an art project.
We've had another fantastic week in Class 1. Here are just a few notices, if you have any questions please get in touch.
From next week the children will come into school on Thursday in their PE kit. We will have PE in the afternoon and then send the children home in their PE kit.
Show and Tell
The five children who wil have the opportunity to take part in Show and Tell are Maedey, Rhys, Seren, Archie A and Logan. Please bring in the item on Monday, we will store it safely in school and send it home on Friday. Children do not have to take part if they do not want to.
All of the children have homework books and will have brought them home today. Reception children will have Maths worksheets and phonics worksheets. Year 1 and Year 2 children will have spellings and a topic based homework menu. In addition to this we would encourage the children to read (share a book() regularly at home.
We will hear the children read in school on a Thursday afternoon or Friday morning, when we will also change their books. Please could you ensure that they have their reading books and reading records in school on these days.
Some of you may have noticed we have two CCTV cameras in our outside area. We haven't been using them but would like to use them to increase the level of supervision we can provide. This will not replace adult supervision. The CCTV is not linked to a network and is not recorded. If you have any concerns regarding this please let us know.
A very big welcome to everyone who is going to be in Class 1 this year. We are so excited about the year ahead and all the fun learning we are going to do together.
Our first day back is Monday 7th September and we will be spending most of that day getting to know each other, making new friends and catching up with old friends. The adults looking after you are going to be Mrs Lake (teacher), Mrs Price and Mrs Saberton.
We will all be on hand to help your child find their way to the classroom, help them find their coat pegs and show them where everything is. Unfortunately, we are not able to invite adults into the classroom at this time but we will do everything we can to support the children coming into the classroom on their own. Drop off time for Class 1 is 9am and pick up is at 3pm. Please see the separate guide if you are unfamiliar with the school layout.
All children in Class 1 are entitled to a free school meal. There is no need to pre book, we will check with the children each day to see if they need a school lunch. You are welcome to send in a packed lunch from home. A fruit snack is provided daily and the children should bring a named water bottle into school every day.
In order to reduce the risk of spreading the virus we ask that only the items on the checklist are brought into school. We will be holding Show and Tell sessions but more information will follow in a newsletter next week along with information about our topic, phonics, reading and homework. Our main priority is to ensure that your children are happy at school. For many of them it is a long time since they were at school or pre-school and we fully understand that starting back this year may seem more daunting than usual for children and parents. Please be assured that we are here to listen to any worries you have.
