WELCOME TO PINE CLASS!
Class Teacher: Miss Hill
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Bird
Hello and welcome to Pine Class! We are a Year 1/2 Class of 32 with plenty of exploring and fun to be had.
We are a friendly staff team so please do feel free to message us around any worries or concerns or just to find out how things are going here in class.
We have moved back over to the main building this year and I am so excited with our new space both indoors and outdoors. We will share the outdoor space with our friends in Willow Class so there will be some great shared learning going on!
This term our Quest is who are we?. We are going to be finding out lots about each other, our likes and dislikes, our local area and also how things have changed over time.
We love to have fun in Pine Class so please pack some spare clothes in case we get a little mucky throughout the day and remember to bring plenty of water to drink.
We have P.E on a Thursday and Friday afternoon so please do come to school dressed ready for P.E.
This year we are continuing with our Monster Phonics learning! Now we are in Year 1 and 2 we know the Monsters well and can use them to help us with both our reading and our writing! We are looking forward to continuing with this programme. Books will be sent out with your child on a Friday and we ask that you bring them back in to us on a Thursday so we can change them ready for you! We are looking for your children to read their book at least 3 times across the week. Over these 3 times you should see your child grow in confidence and fluidity. We will also read with your children in class and aim to listen to everyone at least once a week!
In English this term we will be exploring labels, lists and signs using a lovely story called 'Not a Stick'. We will also be exploring Poetry.
We also love stories in Pine Class so there will be lots of chances to read some of the children's and Miss Hill's favourites! Our Author Focus is Julia Donaldson so we will have lots of fun exploring all of these!
Throughout this year as well as reading we will be setting Mathletics work online for the children to complete. This will be set on a Monday and there is no deadline date for this.
Additionally, some children will have access to Reading Eggs, this is an online reading platform to support children with their reading. It assesses your child and then sets a programme to help them progress with these skills.
