About Class 1/2

Educational visits

We enrich our curriculum by arranging the following:

* A visit to our Parish church: Holy Apostles and St Martyrs.

* Prayer trails- Advent prayer trail and Lent prayer trail.

* A visit from a Chester Zoo ranger who came to talk to the children at school.

* Year 2 taking part in a dance programme which they will perform at the Floral Pavilion in the summer 2 term.

Reminders

Please ensure that you write your child's name in all their belongings, including PE Kit and shoes.  It can be costly in both time and money when this is not done.  

Please ensure your child brings a water bottle to school every day.

Don’t forget to read with your child regularly.


PE

Our PE day is on a Tuesday. Year 1 are practising throwing and catching skills and playing some team games. Year 2 are taking part in a fantastic dance programme. The dance that they are creating is based around our Literacy book 'The Black Hat' which we have read in class. They will perform this dance at the Floral Pavilion in the summer 2 term.

 All children should have a white t-shirt, black/navy shorts and black pumps. For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.   

Reading Books

Lots of children are still changing their books every day and we have seen a massive improvement in their reading attainment.  Books should be changed at least once a week.  Remember the more we read, the better we will become at reading.

Blue Book Bags

Blue book bags are sent home on a Friday and will contain a free choice book. This should be enjoyed at your leisure.

Homework

Homework will be sent out on a Friday and returned by the following Thursday.  Homework is used to consolidate their learning from that week. Your child will receive literacy/spelling homework each week. Grammar homework is sent home every other week. Maths homework is sent home by unit and is sent back after completion. Please support your child with their homework but let them attempt it independently.  

Topics

We cover a variety of fun topics throughout the year and may ask your child to bring in items from home to support these.
