Welcome to Toucan Class with Mrs Odedra, Mrs Arden and Ms Turnerova and Mrs Standing.
The school day starts at 8.55 am with the register. Doors will be open from 8.45 am to give the children time to put away belongings and complete their start of the day activity. The school day ends at 3.15 pm.
PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Please make sure earrings are left at home and long hair is tied up. PE 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 know that when an adult claps, we must stop, join in the clapping then listen the instructions. We are being really thoughtful and making sure that we share nicely, tidy up properly and speak politely to each other.
Our curriculum topic this half term is ... Animals. We have started the topic by finding out about our class bird. We know that a toucan eats fruit, is not very good at flying and enjoys eating frogs. Poor Fred Frog! We will be moving on to learn about other animals. Watch this space...!
