Mrs Gilbert Marvellous Mice
Our first topic of the year is called 'Land Ahoy'. Be ready to find
out about explorers, learn the names of some seas, investigate boats and their materials and create your own treasure map!
Class Dojo is an efficient way to keep in touch. Our class dojo will be regularly updated where I will post information relating to what we are doing/ have done in class and any additional information you may need to know. If your child completes any work at home that you would like to upload for me to see, you can put it in their portfolio and only myself and other staff attached to our class can see this work (other parents cannot see). If you have any messages or questions, please use class dojo.
Our P.E day is Thursday. Please ensure your child comes to school in their P.E kit on this day.
Reading is so important for your child so where possible, please aim to read with your child at home 4 times a week. This can be your child's reading book from school, a library book, books from home or an online book. When you have read with your child, please ensure you date and sign their yellow reading record as this will let me know that they have been read with. Please count up how many times your child is reading at home so they can earn reading badges. If your child reads 25 times, they will gain their purple royal reader badge. 50 reads will earn them a black royal reader badge, 100 reads will earn them a blue royal reader badge and 150 reads will earn them a new book!
Reading books can be changed on any day, your child will just need to drop their book in the yellow box in the mornings.
At the start of each topic, information will be given about the topic along with suggested books to support learning and ideas for activities to complete at home.
Each week on a Wednesday we will put some spellings on class dojo. These are linked to sounds and spelling patterns we have been learning in phonics that week and will be checked in school in sentences each Friday.
Each week on a Wednesday we will also be suggesting some maths activities that can be completed at home to support what we have been learning in Maths that week.
Please send a photo, video or note of any work you complete for the homework via class dojo.
Along with reading 4 times a week, we would greatly appreciate your support with helping your child to learn their number bonds as rapid recall.
