Class 1H

Staff: Mrs Hollyman and Mrs Burns

Welcome to Class 1H!
We are a super smart and smiley class who like to investigate, explore and enjoy learning something new.  Our teacher is Mrs Hollyman and we are supported in class by Mrs Burns.

Curriculum
This year we will be learning all about the story of the Gruffalo, learning about toys that their grandparents used to play with, making a raincoat for Beegu, learning all about bugs and how to set up a garden centre!  We have lots of exciting activities and events planned across the school year, so please keep an eye on newsletters and social media for dates and times! An exciting adventure ahead for us all!

P.E.
PE is on a Tuesday and a Friday, so please leave PE kit in school all week, including pumps or trainers.  P.E this year is taught by Mr McMahon.

Music
We have singing with Mr. Simons on a Thursday afternoon and we are also learning to play the ocarina in our Music lessons on a Wednesday morning.

P.S.H.C.E.
We have PSHCE with Mr Beaumont on a Tuesday morning.

Homework
Homework is given out every Friday and is expected back the following Wednesday. If you are unsure about anything please do not hesitate to speak to an adult in our class.

Home-School Reading
Two home-school reading books will be brought home each week. Please listen to your child read as often as possible and fill in the yellow reading diary after each reading session.

How to help your child
Please try to ensure you support your child with their homework each week and read with them EVERY DAY. Encourage your child to use money when visiting the shop. Help your child to practise counting forwards and backwards in ones, twos, fives and tens. Ask them to help you with writing shopping lists and sing counting songs in the bath!  Bedtime stories are a great opportunity for spending some quality time together and reading stories together, can develop your child’s vocabulary and language skills.  Have fun!

Please ensure all uniform and coats, hats and footwear are labelled with your child’s name to allow us to return any lost items.

We have an open door policy so if you ever need to speak to one of the teachers, please call in before or after school, telephone or go to the office to make an appointment.

We look forward to working with your children this and sharing our learning with you!
