Welcome to Class 1/2 C – Mr Crowther
Welcome to our Class page. Here you will find important information about our Class routines, curriculum and general information. We will also keep you updated about the amazing activities we have been getting up to at school. Please scroll down to keep up to date with our class blog.
Children will be taught to read through daily Read, Write, Inc. lessons, individual reading sessions and guided reading. Children will bring home school reading books to practice reading at home. Please read regularly with your children at home and use their Daily Homework Dairy to communicate with the class teacher. We would ask parents to initial their child’s reading log on the days they have heard their child read and add a comment if they would like to. Children who have read at home will receive class charts points to reward their work each week.
Read 3 times = 1 point
Read 5 or more times = 3 points
Daily Homework Diary
All children have their own Daily Homework Diary. In this diary, staff will record when they have read with your child and will let you know the spelling pattern and Maths focus for the week, along with a practical activity children can complete at home to support their learning. We do not need your child to bring in evidence of their work but would like you to sign the task if they have completed it. As always, if your child has produced something they are very proud of and would like to share it with their teacher we would love to see it. All tasks that are signed off as completed by parents / carers will be awarded with a class charts point.
There is also a space for parents to write a note to the teacher if they need to. Please ensure that your child hands in their diary to allow teachers to read and respond to any messages as soon as possible.
PE – children should bring their full PE kit every Monday and leave it in school throughout the week in case of any extra PE activities. Please name all of your child’s kit. No jewellery – earrings must be removed either by the child or before they come into school. Please make sure that your child has the correct PE Kit:
- Black shorts, white t-shirt and trainers
- No football or sports tops please.
If your child is going to be taking part in outdoor PE lessons we will inform you so that you can send appropriate clothing and footwear.
2019 – 2020
Class 1/2C Activities
Jesus’ Christmas Party
Children in Year 1 / 2 put on a fabulous performance of Jesus’ Christmas Party. We are very proud of them all for their wonderful singing and acting. They made everyone very proud.
Design and Technology – Making Vehicles – 13/12/19
Over the past few weeks, the children have been busy researching and designing their own vehicles. This week, they had the opportunity to develop some joinery skills when making the wheels for their vehicles. They measured and cut lengths of wooden dowel, then filed down the edges to fit the wheels. The children were very please with their final products.
Christingles – 10/12/19
In RE, we have been learning about Christingles. We talked about what they look like, what each part represents, and why Christians use them during Advent. The children loved making their own Christingles in class.
Making Biscuits! – 27/11/19
This week, Mr Crowther’s English group have been learning about instructions. We looked at some biscuit recipes and had a go at making our own, by following the instructions. The children had a brilliant time mixing, sifting, rolling, cutting, and most importantly – eating!
Locomotion School Trip – 13/11/19
We had a wonderful visit to the Locomotion railway museum in Shildon. The children thoroughly enjoyed learning about George Stephenson and the beginning of the railways. We found out lots of information about trains and completed some special challenges along the way.
Disability Sports – Boccia – 22/10/19
Today children had the opportunity to take part in a disability sport called Boccia. A sports coach from the Sedgefield School Sports Partnership talked to the children about the game, how it is played, and showed them some useful skills and techniques. The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and loved playing as part of a team.
