Welcome to Parrots class with Mrs Wiles, Mrs Aves and Mrs Standing.
Welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely break and feel a little rested! We have loved finding out what the children have been up to over the holidays - they have been very eager to share their news with us (and Archie the Elephant)! We would like to say a massive thank you to you all for your lovely gifts - your generosity was overwhelming.
This term, we have started our new topic - Winter Wonderland. The children have been very busy as they have discovered some 'frozen' animals in our outdoor area - they have been exploring and problem solving the best and quickest ways to remove the ice and rescue the animals... they have been very inventive so far and have had lots of fun! Checkout our curriculum map below, to see what else we will be learning this half term...
Doors open at 8.45 am and registration is at 8.55 am. School finishes at 3.15 pm.
Parrots' P.E. days will be on Wednesday and Thursday this term. Please make sure earrings are left at home on those days, or that your child can safely take them out themselves. Long hair needs to be tied up. P.E. bags need to stay in school and we will send them home for washing at the end of each half term.
The children will bring home their green Read Write Inc sound books. Please practise saying the sound and writing the letter we have learnt that day and recap on previous sounds and formation of letters. Please don't rush ahead of us, consolidation is just as important! Please bring the book back in every day.
Reading books will start to come home after we have learnt all the single sounds. Outside in our reading area is a selection of books for you to take home and share with your child. Please choose these with your child and record your reading experiences in the yellow reading record.
Our Class Charter
We have been thinking about our class rules. Archie the Elephant keeps a close eye on us to make sure we are sitting nicely, listening carefully and watching brilliantly. We are being really thoughtful and making sure that we are being kind, sharing nicely, tidying up properly and speaking politely to each other.
Our curriculum topic this half term is 'Animals'. We have started the topic by finding out about our class bird and creating some lovely parrot artwork. Next week we will be moving on to learn about other animals. Watch this space...!
