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. There is also a space for parents to write a note to the teacher if they need to. Your child should keep their diary and reading books inside their ‘Tuff Bag’, and bring them to school on their reading day.
PE – children should come to school in their PE kit every Monday. They can wear jumpers and joggers over the top to stay warm throughout the day.
2020 – 2021
This week we have been using recycled boxes and materials to create our very own monsters. The children took so much time and care to create these wonderful pieces of Art. A fantastic effort by all!
Design and Technology
Our topic this term has been ‘Space’, where we have learned about astronauts and space travel. We watched videos and looked at pictures of real space shuttle launches, then designed and built our own space shuttles using junk materials. The children learned about different ways to join materials and we were very impressed with the outcomes.
This term we are lucky enough to be using the Community Garden to do some outdoor learning with Sam Jackson from Sc.out.ed. This week, the children discovered some mysterious Firebird eggs scattered around the garden. They had to work as a team to build a nest and keep the eggs warm.
Our topic this term is ‘To Infinity and Beyond’, and we have been learning all about astronauts and space. In Design and Technology, we have developed our cutting and joining skills using scissors and split pins. We made some astronauts with moving parts and they look fantastic!
