Welcome back! There are twenty seven pupils in Sparkle Class this year! I, Miss LeVardi, am the Year 1 class teacher and Miss Lord is our Teaching Assistant. We support the children in their learning every day. Miss Rawlinson will also be working with us some afternoons.
This year, we will be finding out all about Flight; who invented the first aeroplane. We will be learning about past and present royalty in our castles topic and differences in countries through our study of Africa. In summer term we will also learn about explorers and space; looking at Amelia Earhart and Neil Armstrong. All this, as well as preparing for Phonics Screening in Summer Term!
We look forward to showing you how we develop and progress as we work hard in our learning.
If you have any worries or concerns about your child, please do not hesitate to contact me via my staff email on email@example.com or Miss Lord at firstname.lastname@example.org
Next term we will be changing reading books as soon as your child has read them so please take them in so they can be changed frequently. We still expect all children to be reading and will be checking this on a Tuesday.
Spelling will be as follows for Summer 1. It is important your child can spell all of these words by the year 1 and can use them in their writing.
|Week 1||Week 2||Week 3||Week 4||Week 5||Week 6||Week 7|
|Assessment on all words|
REMOTE LEARNING AT OLSA
Below you will find 2 remote learning plans. Plan A relates to work that is being carried out in class. This is the work we would like you to complete if your bubble is isolating or you are isolating because someone you have been near has tested positive for coronavirus.
Option B should only be completed in emergencies when you do not have access to the internet.
In the event of a whole bubble closure or a further lockdown your child's Teams sessions will be at the following times:
9am Register, Phonics and English lesson
11am Register and Maths lesson
2pm Register, feedback and Story
Morning break begins at 10:30am. If you wish to you can send your child in with a healthy snack.
In the afternoon, we have snack time just before home time. This is a piece of fruit of your child's choice or you can send your child in with another healthy snack.
We ask you to read with your child as much as possible. Once you have read with your child, please fill in their reading record to let us know. We will change reading books when they have read their book so please ensure your child’s reading record and books are in their school bag. We will send home two reading each time these are changed; we ask you to please also focus on the comprehension questions that have been sent home as a book mark.
PE is on a Wednesday and Thursday. Children should come to school in their PE kit (Black leggings or jogging bottoms, PE top and hoody, jumper or cardigan).
Please continue to practice your child's phonics at home using your sound board. If you are unsure of how to say a sound see one of us in school or use this interactive sound wall to help remind the children https://learn.readwithphonics.com/school/phonics-games/phonics-soundwall
We are going to star sending home a mix of real and alien words for your children to add sound buttons to and read at home in preparation for their phonics screening.
