‘Learning about caring; caring about learning’

Willow – Year 1 / Year 2

Week Commencing 9/11/20

 

It was lovely to talk to so many of you last week during our parent consultation phone call. I am very proud of all the children in Willow Class and the progress that they are all making. If you were unable to make the phone call and would still like to speak to me about your child's learning then please don't hesitate to ask me to rearrange your appointment. 

 

Please see the fortnightly overview below for your child's learning. There are lots of ideas, games and songs on here that you can use to support your child's learning at home. Please could you also log into Google Classroom on Hwb, using the guidelines and passwords I  recently sent home. This is also new to me, but hopefully, we will learn how to use it together and it will strengthen connections between school and home learning. 

Friday 13th November is Children in Need. Your child can come to school wearing Spotty clothes on this day. Please DO NOT bring any money in as we cannot accept it but there is a 'Just Giving Children in Need Page' that you can donate money to. 

 

PE is every Wednesday - Please can your child wear their own suitable sports clothes on this day.

 

Forest School is every other Thursday - Our Forest School dates for this term are the  12th and 26th of  November,  and  the10th of December. It is important that you child comes to school in suitable outdoor clothing on this day so that they can fully enjoy forest school whatever the weather. Please ensure your child has a pair of wellies and warm clothing that is labelled with their name. 

 

Mathletics - Please continue to do the weekly task that is set on mathletics as this will support your child with their learning at home.

 

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me. My email address is jenny.caddy@millbrookprimary.co.uk

 

Thank you all for your continued support

Fortnightly Menu 11-11-20

Week commencing 19th October 2020

 

We have had a very busy half term in Willow Class, and I am very pleased with all the hard work and progress that all the children have made - Bendigedig everyone!

This week I will be sending home the children's Hwb login details along with a helpful guide to show you how to use it to support your child with their learning at home. Eventually all work set will be through Hwb and Google classroom, just as the children in the Junior school are doing at the moment. 

Please see below our fortnightly blended learning plan. I will also put this on Hwb. Your child will be able to use Hwb to send me work if they want me to see anything that they have done at home. 

 

PE is on a Wednesday.
Could your child please wear their PE kit to school on this day to support the current social distancing measures that are in place.

Our last Forest school session this half term is Thursday 22nd October.

Could you please provide your child with some wellies that can be left in school and ensure that they are labelled with your child's name. They can also wear suitable warm, outdoor clothing on this day - it does not have to be uniform. 

 

Mathletics 

A weekly mathletics task has been set for your child to do at home to support their learning.

Monday 28th September

I am so proud of how well all the children have settled into school and they are all working very hard in class. It was a pleasure to take them to the 'Secret Garden' last week and we had lots of fun finding Autumn Treasures! 

 

Literacy

 

This week we will be continuing to work on the story of 'The Lighhouse Keepers lunch' and we will be writing a sentence about our favourite part of the story. We will be focusing on the structure of the sentence, ensuring that we remember to use finger spaces, full stops and capital letters correctly. 

 

Our red words for this week are: for he is are

Please try practising these words at home using flashcards. You can also get your child to write them using different coloured pens to make rainbow words and reinforce their learning at home.

 

 

Maths

This week we are continuing to work on the formation of our numbers and ensuring that they are facing the correct way.

We will be investigating how many different ways we can make ten and we will be practising to write a number sentence to show our discoveries.   

There is a Mathleteics task set for you to try at home to support our learning in school if you would like to try it.

 

ICT

Today in class we have been practising to log into Purple mash independently. The children then used the 2paint programme to create their own lighthouse picture. You can also try this at home using your log in details that were sent home with your child. If you have lost your login details, please let me know and I will get the information for you.

 

 

Please remember to send a piece of fruit in with your child daily as we cannot provide fruit in school at the moment.

PE is every Wednesday. Please send your child into school wearing their PE kit on this day.

 

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me, me email address is jenny.caddy@millbrookprimary.co.uk

 

Keep checking Twitter- I will be adding photos throughout the week so you can see all the fun things that we get up to.

 

Welcome to Willow Class

 

It has been lovely to welcome all the children into Willow Class this week and we have enjoyed getting to know them all. They are a wonderful class and we are looking forward to a fun year ahead!

 

Our topic for this term is 'Starry Nights and Twinkly Lights' and we have started by reading the 'Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch'. We have been exploring why the light at the top of the lighthouse is important and how it helps to keep people safe.

We have also been talking about what we already know about light and have discussed things that we would like to learn and find out to develop our knowledge further.

Have a look at all the wonderful ideas and questions that the children came up with below:

 

 

PE will be on a Wednesday

Could your child please wear their PE kit to school on this day to support the current social distancing measures that are in place. 

 

Forest School will be every other Thursday beginning on September 24th

Mathletics and Purple Mash passwords were sent home earlier this week. I will be setting a weekly mathletics task for your child to do at home to support their learning. 

 

We are looking forward to sharing a wonderful year together in Willow Class, that will be full of lots of fun, laughter and learning together!
