Welcome Back

Hello and welcome back to school for another exciting year.  It has been a different start to the year following the lockdown but the children are quickly becoming familiar with their new class and members of staff. 

 

This Year we are in Green Class.  As a team we would like to introduce ourselves.  My name is Ella-Marie, but please feel free to call me Ella, and I am the teacher in Green Class.  Within the class we have a fantastic team including: 

  • Linda who oversees the class if I am out for short periods of time, but also supports teaching and learning every day.  

  • Emily, who covers the class when I am out on Tuesday afternoons, leading specific activities. 

  • Charlotte, Rashida and Amina complete the team and they support the children every day whilst making learning fun and rewarding.  

This year we have six boys and three girls in the class. 

 

Topic

This half term our topic is ‘All about me’ and they will be reflecting about themselves, their likes / dislikes, family and friends as well as exploring their sense and demonstrating an understanding of their body. 

English

In English this half term we will be reading ‘Where’s the Bus’.  The children will have opportunities to explore the book, name objects / animals / actions, label pictures, form sentences, respond to who and what questions to support comprehension and sequence the story through roleplay or small world play. 

Amazon’s description of the book: Rabbit & Mouse find all sorts of interesting things to do while they wait for a bus to come. But there's no sign of a bus - or is there? Young children will love to spot all the buses in the illustrations - which the animals miss because they're too busy doing something else!

 

We will also be participating in regular phonics sessions three times a week and the children's reading skills will be supported through matching activities, flashcards, games and reading books as appropriate throughout the week.     

 

The children will have further opportunities to develop their fine motor and handwriting skills through weekly activities such as Dough Disco, Write Dance and handwriting activities. 

 

Mathematics

Each week the children will revisit and develop skills linked to Maths areas:

Monday - Number

Tuesday - Using and Applying

Wednesday - Computing - Themed around different maths areas

Friday - Measure

 

These differentiated sessions will focus on: matching, sorting, 2D / 3D shape, counting and one to one correspondence. 

 

Throughout the term we hope to have a weekly walk or daily power walks to support the children in developing their skills of walking safely and develop their knowledge of the local area.

 

We are looking forward to this half term, making friends, becoming more independent, learning together and having fun!
