Reception and Year 1
Class Teacher: Miss Samantha Mewett
Teaching Assistants: Miss Nancy Worthington and Mrs Rosie Redford (AM)
Welcome to Willow class
Happy New Year everyone!
We hope you had a restful break. Miss Mewett, Miss Worthington and Mrs Redford have been busy getting the classroom ready for the Spring term. We are very excited!
This terms topic is…….. Once Upon a Time! We will be focusing on a variety of traditional tales and tales with a twist. We have lots of exciting things planned in for this topic for your child to enjoy and have fun with. Attached below is a curriculum coverage map for Year 1 and Reception to give you more information on what they will be learning in each area.
Homework is set weekly; children will be sent home with either a maths, writing or topic based activity. Please can homework be completed and returned the following Thursday.
As well as homework I strongly encourage daily reading at home, this helps to support reading and writing in all areas of education. Once your child has read their school book at home please sign their reading record and we will change their book.
In Willow, the children thoroughly enjoy making and building. If you could offer any empty boxes, tubes or pots for our junk modelling area we would be very grateful.
PE for this term will take place on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please ensure your child has their full kit for these days.
If you ever have any questions please feel free to come and speak to me at the end of day.
