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!
