Welcome to Purple Class!
With Miss Brown, Mrs Gee and Miss Hayden!
Welcome to Year 1!
We hope you have had a lovely summer holiday!
We will be spending the first week introducing our topic 'Enchanted Woodland' and getting to know our new teacher and classroom.
During our topic we will be learning all about different animals, including humans!; where they live and what they need to stay healthy
We will be having an animal dress up day, a visit from Animal Parties and a visit to Alfreton Park.
Please send in a photograph of any pets you have at home, so that we can make a display of Purple Class Pets!
PE- Our PE day is Wednesday. Please ensure that PE kits are in school on these days. It is a good idea to keep a PE kit in school all week. Children can keep these in the red box in the classroom.
Reading – Each child has a book and a reading record. When they have read with an adult at home please can an adult write in their reading record with the date, book title and any comments about their reading- these will be checked every Monday by Miss Brown. When reading with your child, please try to ask them questions about the book they have read, comprehension skills are very important. Your child can change their book when they are ready, but please stick to the book band colour they have been given.
We are checking the children's knowledge of the 'high frequency' or 'common exception' words on the key word lists. You will get a list of some of the words they are unsure of.
How can you help?
