Welcome to Year One Kingfishers Class!
Miss Grimes is our Class Teacher.
Mrs Harfleet is our Learning Support Assistant and will be working in Kingfishers Class this year.
Our PE day is Wednesday and Friday so please ensure your child has a named PE kit with plimsoles or trainers. Earrings must be removed for PE before school by an adult for health and safety reasons.
Please remind your child to bring in a named water bottle every day - even in the winter months! Being well hydrated helps us to concentrate and be ready to learn.
Your child has the opportunity to change their reading book every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. When you have read with your child please comment and sign their contact book to signify they have read at home.
Please use class Dojo to communicate any messages and to keep up to date with school and class news.
We will also continue with Buster's Book club where the number of minutes read should be recorded on the Buster's Book club bookmark every Wednesday night.
Phonics is taught daily with an emphasis on children being able to read the words and then be able to put them into sentences to show they understand their meaning. They also practice writing the words and writing them into full sentences. Throughout the year, I will give out alien and real words for you to work on with your child at home. This will prepare them for their Phonics Screening test in June 2020.
Forest School will be taking place every Friday morning so please make sure your child has wellies in school along with gloves for winter months and hats for summer months. Forest School is an exciting part of the school day in which the children will be exploring our topics and other areas of the curriculum, in the outdoor environment.
