Class 6 – F2

Hi everyone

It's Friday again, this week has gone so quickly! I'm glad to see that all of the rain has gone and now the sun is shining!  I have been busy working from home this week, reading all of your emails and seeing your lovely photos. I've been very impressed with the writing I have seen and I can tell you have all been working hard on your letter formation. I know some children have been practising writing their names and can now write them independently, well done.

Here are a selection of photos that I have been sent this week. If you would like your photos added ask your parents to send them to me via the class email - class6@sitwellinfantschool,co,uk.

See you soon.

Snow fun this afternoon!

Hello Class 6

I hope everyone is Ok and working hard. I have been in school this week teaching the children who are attending school. We've had lots of fun making masks and working on the computers. They've all been working very hard.

I have had some fantastic photos this week and I thought you would like to see what your friends have been doing at home.

If you want to share your photos ask your grown to email them to the class email and I will add them to the website.

Foundation Subjects Home Learning w/c 11.01.21

Hello everyone.

I hope you are all well and trying to be like Determinator with your home learning. I am missing you all but I have enjoyed hearing from your adults about what you have been doing. Here are some photos that I have been sent by some children of their learning. If you would like to send any photos to our class email please feel free and I will add them to our class page.

Miss Todd 

Please see below an example of our school day and routine in school and a list of suggestions for support with breaking up the home learning sessions and providing children with free choice exploring time.

Hi Class 6

As I am sure your parents have already told you the Government have said that we are not allowed to come into school for the next few weeks. I'm really sad that I won't be teaching you in the classroom everyday! However I might see some of you in school if your parent is a key worker.

Mrs Hague, Miss Hainsworth and myself will be putting our learning on to our class pages every week so you can do some of our learning at home. I will also be making some videos to show you how to complete our learning on the Video Resource Centre on the website, like we did before. Also every week I will organise a Zoom meeting so we can have a catch up again and see each other on the screens. I will send your parents and e mail inviting to the meeting each week.

I would love to see any learning you do or if you have any questions or problems. So you could ask your parents to send photos to our class email - class6@sitwellinfantschool.co.uk.

I hope you all keep well and safe and work hard for at home just as you would in school.

 

Miss Todd

Class 6 have had a fabulous time today at our party.  We did lots of dancing and even had two star dancers! During the afternoon we playing musical statues, pass the parcel and corners and we ate our gingerbread men that we decorated. We should all sleep well tonight!!

Hi everyone.  I hope you have all had a good half term holiday and are raring to get going again. I just thought I would let you know I am coming back to school on Monday. My finger is much better and the doctor says I can come back. I have really missed you all and I can't wait to see you all on Monday!

Autumn 1 

Proud to be me!

 

Welcome to Class 6! 

It is lovely to see the children coming into school and seeing returning parents and new faces. I have to say we have been very impressed with how the children have handled entering school in a morning without the support of their parents. Well done! 

We have already got some work up on the walls that we have completed in our first days within school. 

 

 

 

During the next few weeks we will introducing our Sitwell Superhero Owls, who help us to understand how to behave and also how to treat people and property. These are Determinator, Capitain Kindness, Honesty Hunter, Communication Crusader, Respecto and Gentle Guardian. Each week will get to know these owls and how we can be like them.

 

This term our topic is Proud to be Me!  During this topic we will be finding out about our friends including their families, likes and dislikes and their physical features. We will be looking at the similarities and differences between the children in our class and talking about how we can all work and play together.

 

In maths we are going to be learning about the numbers 1 to 10. We will think about how to represent numbers in different ways such as looking at the number, the word, numicon, dominoes and dice. This will help us to recognise each number in a range of different ways. 

 

We will also be learning about stories and how to talk about what has happened in a story and trying to predict what will happen at the end of the book. At the same time we will be working on our Phonics skills and introducing letters and tricky words which you might you may spot in books.

 

We will be sending out your reading diaries soon with a reading book from school. When you read at home with a grown up (or older brother or sister) ask them to write it in your reading diary and if you have read 3 times in a week you will get a stamp. When you get 6 stamps you will be able to visit Mrs Peart to get a prize from her prize box. 

 

In PE we are looking forward to Mr Hiner coming into to school to help develop our skills. We will be doing PE on a Tuesday every week. This half term we are working on our ball skills. 

 

We are looking forward to all of the different learning we will do during this year and seeing how the children will grow and be The Best We Can Be!
