Welcome back Fern Class,
We are super lucky to be in the ‘new look’ Fern classroom. The room looks brilliant after a summer of renovations!
Before we start our main topic we are learning about Elmer the elephant. Elmer is not afraid to be different and stand out from the crowd… why be a grey elephant when you can be a patch work of pattern and colour?! We are using this message to think about how we are all unique and should wear our uniqueness with pride.
The first few weeks of term will focus on setting Year 1 and 2 expectations and creating a happy, focused and engaged learning environment. Our actual topic for this term is Knock Knock. This topic includes a range of cross curricular learning opportunities.
We are ready to work hard, learn lots and have fun and there are a few things you can do to support us in this. Please read with your child(ren) a minimum of three times a week (new Reading Records are on their way), this will mean your child is entered into our weekly Reading Raffle prize draw and for each week the whole class is in the draw they earn reward points. I would also recommend that all children have a see through, non-spill water bottle in the classroom. Children with water bottles in the classroom can then access their water with no disruption to learning. Please could you ensure that these bottles are just filled with water.
Thank you for your continued support, we have already had a brilliant start to the school year – a big thank you and well done to the children (and parents) as all the children have been coming into school on their own.
If you have any questions please do come and speak to me.
