Oak Class Update
Hello, I hope you all enjoyed your May half term, especially as we had such lovely weather. Last half term was very busy; the Year 2s were superstars whilst sitting their Year 2 SATS, some even commenting that they were enjoying doing their quizzes. Both Mr Jones and Mrs Cutler were very complimentary on what an excellent Class Oak is and thoroughly enjoyed teaching them while I was away recuperating after my operation. I now feel much better and ready to finish this year on a high with a wonderful class.
This half term is going to be just as busy, we still have lots to do and learn before the end of term. This half term it is the Year 1s turn to have their phonics screening test which is approaching quickly. In Numeracy we will be learning about different types of measurements including length and width, temperature and capacity. In Literacy we will be learning how to write letters both formal and informal.
In the afternoons, we will be covering a wide variety of areas from Design and Technology where we will be learning how to become sculptures and creating our very own masterpieces. In Topic we will be looking at our local area, and finding out what our local area is like, before turning into tour guides, and giving a tour of Hoxne to Pine class from Mendham. In RE will be learning all about friendship. We will find out what makes a good friend and who my friends are.
As the weather should be turning warmer, please make sure you have either applied suntan lotion before school, or send a labelled bottle into school for your child to apply by themselves. A sun hat will also soon be needed to protect them further.
Your child needs their water bottle, coat, reading books and a signed diary in school every day. If you have any questions please come and find me, I will be outside every morning and most afternoons.
