The information in this document is for Academic Year 2018-19.
Class Specific Update:
Homework will consist of a piece of phonics, maths or topic work once per week. This will come home every Friday, to be returned each Wednesday.
Children will be heard reading in class during Guided Reading sessions and individually. Please help your child by regularly listening to them read at home. Being a good reader means more than being able to read the words on the page, it also means being able to understand what is going on. See the enclosed booklet for more information.
PE lessons take place each week – our class slot is on Friday. Please make sure that your child has their kit in school ready to take part. School PE kit is white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps for indoor and trainers for outdoor lessons. Please remember that children cannot take part in lessons if they have ear rings in. If your child does get their ear(s) pierced, they will need to be able to take their studs out before lessons by themselves. Staff are not allowed to help.
Lessons cover the entire Development Matters Framework at SASJ, this term our topic is ‘Ourselves’. Your child will be immersed in the theme of ourselves learning all about their body, senses and what makes them special. They will be reading ‘Guess How Much I Love You’ and ‘The Owl Babies’ to help support their learning.
Each week, our class will be going to the library to choose a book to read as a class and learn about the library. Our weekly slot is Wednesday.
