Welcome to our Class 1/2HL Page!
Mrs Hawes and Mrs Leng with Mrs Bi
This year your children will be in one of three home classes; Y1/2HL, Y1/2H or Y2P
Your children will be registered in their home classes in a morning.
School begins at 8.50am (Doors open at 8.45) and finishes at 3.00pm. Please ensure children are collected at 3.00pm by an adult. If it is an adult not known to the class teacher, please let them know in advance.
Our morning routine is as follows:
Fifteen minutes to nine, doors open.
Pupils hang coat etc on peg, put book bag in their drawer. We encourage children to be independent. Parents are invited into classrooms for the first half term and then we ask that parents drop children at the classroom door.
Lunch bag, if children have brought one, to be placed on a table in the classroom.
All children will have a book to take home to read with an adult. Children can change this whenever they have read at home. Please send their reading record in to school every day. You can write a comment or sign when you have read at home.
After registration, we will have registration. Some days children have PE and music too. Children will complete their literacy and maths lessons in their learning groups. This means they may be taught by another teacher who works in KS1. Our learning groups are reviewed regularly.
In the afternoon, children will be registered in their home classes and will stay in those classes for topic subjects.
On Wednesdays, children in both years will have music and PE. This means it may be a different teacher who greets children on the door in a morning.
Please make sure your child’s PE kit is in school all week. Children have PE with a teacher from WPT on Wednesdays. Your child will have a second PE lesson with their class teacher on another day of the week.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and will be expected back into school by Wednesday so that teachers are able to look through it.
Our topic for this term, is ‘Fur, Feathers and Scales.’Within this topic, children will be finding out about animal types, habitats and how to protect local wildlife. We will also be producing our KS1 School Production. This year’s show is called ‘A Sky Full of Stars’ and has features lots of our favourite songs!
Please ensure your child has a water bottle to keep in the classroom. This can be taken home everyday and filled with fresh water.
We have lots of exciting things planned and look forward to the next term, as well as preparing for Christmas!
