Welcome to R2!
Our Class Teacher is Mrs Ellis, our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Abram and Mrs Jones helps us in R2 and R1.
We are also very lucky to have some other adults who help us during the week.
A warm welcome to all the children, some from our Nursery and some from other providers.
We hope you find the following information useful.
A newsletter comes home on a regular basis letting parents know what we are learning and giving ideas and suggestion as to how help and support can be offered.
Any letters will also be attached to our classroom window for reference.
We have PE on a Monday and it really does help all the staff if you could practice at home, helping your child to dress and undress. Please could you also make sure that all items of clothing are named, including school shoes. Thank you.
Handwriting homework is sent out on a Friday and is returned on the Monday. Please could you spend some time helping your child with the correct tripod pencil grip and formation of pre-cursive letters and recapping on the phonic sounds given - every bit helps!
Our two class bears Will and George go home with our two Star of the Week children so keep trying hard in all you do. If it's not you this Friday, it could be you next week! Our Star of the Week pair also get to sit on a special cushion for the week too.
Our topic for this term is Magical Me! We will be introduced to the characters from the Oxford Reading Scheme we use in school. Our Literacy focus will be based on a range of books with links to our topic. Phonic sessions take place on a daily basis and children will be learning to blend and segment words in readiness for reading.
Number work covers place value, addition, subtraction and shape to name a few areas.
That's all for now - see you soon!
