A big welcome to Jade Class
from Mrs Stone and Mrs Docherty
Our topic for the summer term 1 is ‘People who help us’. We will be learning about doctors, dentists, fire fighters, police officers and vets and how they help us in the local community. We will be enjoying lots of stories as well as finding facts in information books about these people and their jobs. At the end of this topic the children will discuss what they would like to do when they grow up and we will have a chance to explore some of these jobs first hand.
Now it is the summer term it is our job to get the children ready for the real world of Year 1! We are doing this by having more focused early morning tasks, where children will sit at their table with the rest of their group (please support us with this). We will be working in groups more frequently and raising expectations of what the children can achieve.
How you can support your child’s learning at home?
Please can you read a story to your child every day and either practise their sounds or ask them to read their school reading book to you daily, your child’s book bag must be in school every day. Please check book bags regularly for important letters and updates.
Our PE days this term will be on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in school for these days. We have 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 your child’s name.
Please remember, all money coming into school needs to be in a sealed, named envelope.
And finally, ask any of the team if you would like any further advice on supporting learning at home, we are all very happy to help.
