Welcome to Penguins Class.

Our class charter

1.10.21

In maths we played a game called 'Shut the box'. We had lots of fun, used supportive and encouraging words with our partners and practised our mental addition skills too! Here is a link to the game if you would like to play it with your child at home:

Autumn 1:

Penguins Staff:

Mrs Wiles is our class teacher

Mrs Alsford is our classroom assistant 

PE days:

This half term our PE days are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so please make sure your child has a full, named PE kit in school on these days. The PE kits will be kept in school on pegs and sent home at the end of each half term to be washed and checked. Please make sure any ear piercings are removed on PE days. 

Homework expectations:

Reading

  • On Mondays the children will bring home a special RWI 'book bag book' that links to the one they read online the week before. This is an unfamiliar text and will therefore test the skills they learnt the week before to read it.       
  •  On Wednesdays the children will be set the online book version of the story they have been practicing during their RWI lessons. This can be found on the Oxford Owl website using the password and username found in the front of your child's reading records.                   https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/login?active-tab=students
  • Ideally the children should be reading 5 times a week. These can be books you may have at home or a book they have brought home from school from our class or school libraries. It also includes the online RWI books that are set every week.

Maths

Occasionally we may set some maths work to follow up what the children have been learning that week. This will be set on Teams in the assignments but we will let you know on our class boards outside our rooms for when we do this.

  • it is always helpful to practise counting. In Year 1 we will be counting in 1s forwards and backwards to 100, in 2s forwards and backwards to 24 and in 10s forwards and backwards to 120.

Other

We will keep you updated on our class Teams page for any other homework set later on in the term/year.
