Class 1GF

 

Welcome to Class 1GF

 

Teachers of Class 1GF: Mrs L. Grove and Mrs A. Fallows

Teaching Assistant: Mrs N. Bhatt

 P.E. in Class 1GF

  • Monday - Dance/Gymnastics - remember no earrings
  • Thursday– Outdoor games (we do not get changed for this)

Children need to leave their P.E kit at school; we will send it home to be washed every half term. For outdoor games children do not need to change into kit.

Long hair must be tied back and no jewellery please. In Year 1 children should be able to change for P.E by themselves.

Spellings

Spellings are given out on Friday and need to be learned for the test the following Wednesday. Please help your child to learn their spellings at home – remember Look, Say, Cover, Write and Check.

Homework

The children have a homework folder. Homework is given out on a Friday and needs to be returned to school by the following Wednesday.

 

Visits

During the year we will make regular visits to Highfield Country Park. We have at least one class trip during the year, usually to the farm and we will also visit other places in the local area during the year.

Reading books

Your child needs to bring their book bag to school every day. Each week your child will read as part of a group and to a member of staff. Children need to read every night at home and this needs to be written down in their orange reading record.

As your child finishes their reading book they can change it for another one in the morning. Mrs. Grove or Mrs. Fallows will periodically assess your child’s reading  to see if they are ready for the next book band. If you would like to help in school we would appreciate some help with hearing the children read. Please see Mrs. Grove or Mrs. Fallows if you are available in the afternoons. Thanks!

Your child will also be given key word lists that you can help them to learn to read and write at home.

Golden Time

We have golden time on a Friday. During golden time children can take part in a range of activities in both classes. Children who have not behaved appropriately during the week may have to miss either five or ten minutes of their golden time.

Friday assembly

Children who have received certificates for out of school activities such as swimming or sporting activities can bring their certificates to show in good work assembly on Friday mornings. During the year there will be an opportunity for parents to come and watch the children in their class assembly. The dates for these will be given nearer the time.
