A big welcome to Jade Class
from Mrs Stone and Mrs Docherty
Our topic this term is ‘Toys’, perfect for just after Christmas! We will start by focusing on their toys (please could the children bring in a favourite toy to share on Thursday 10th January). After looking at our toys we will move on to looking at technological toys and the games we play. We plan on having a themed ‘Bear Week’ where we look at Teddy Bears and real bears culminating in a Teddy Bears’ Picnic, We will also be going back in time and looking at the history of toys and finally look at push/pull toys, vehicles, buildings and construction. Children will be encouraged to ask a family member about their toys from when they were a child, so be ready for that and please ask any grandparents to be prepared!
A big ‘thank you’ to everyone for making our ‘early morning tasks’ so successful. We feel as staff that it allows us time to have informal dialogue about your child’s learning and for you to know that we are always available for any queries/concerns. In addition to this, on Thursday 17th January, we would like to invite you in to share your child’s ‘Learning Journey’ with them. On this day we will open the classroom door at 3.00pm.
The children are now well versed at getting changed for PE. Please can you encourage your child to get themselves dressed and undressed with as little help as possible at home, especially how to put their sweatshirt on and the tricky manoeuvre to put them the right way when they are inside out!
We have however still got an awful lot of PE kit and school uniform that is not named – we cannot take responsibility for unnamed clothing, so it is essential that all school uniform is labelled clearly with their name.
Please remember, all money coming into school needs to be in a sealed, named envelope and your child needs their book bag in school every day.
Welcome to Jade!
