Welcome to the 1B Class Page.
I hope you all had a wonderful half term break. I am really looking forward to welcoming you all back on Tuesday.
Our new topic for our second half term together is,’ Toys Old & New!’ We will be looking closely at a range of toys from today and comparing them to toys used in the past. We would love the children to bring in their favourite toy to discuss with the class. We would also be very grateful if you have an old toy we could borrow to discuss. As an exciting entry point to this topic we will be borrowing a box of toys from ‘Hartlebury Museum.’.Our role play this half term is ‘The Old Toy Shop.’ We would also like parents to join us for a Teddy Bear making afternoon, please see the letter below.

Reading books will be changed once completed at home. Please record your child’s reading log so we know when books are completed. Every month I will be choosing a Bookworm of the month for children who read regularly at home and show a love of reading.
When your child has read to an adult at home five times, they will receive a sticker in their diary.
Your child will be sent home with practice rapid recall sheets. These are not to be learned by rote, but rather explored and understood to a point of being able to apply their learning. Please feel free to use objects/ resources to support them with this.
Your child will be taking part in PE on a Monday and a Friday. If your child is unable to take part in PE due to injury please write a note explaining the extent of the injury and which activities your child is unable to participate in so that we can find a suitable way of involving them in the lesson. If your child has a verruca and therefore needs to wear their pumps when indoors, please send in a note marked for my attention. Also earrings should be covered with plasters or tape for PE if they cannot be removed. Please ensure your child is provided with something suitable on PE days, including some warm clothes so we may do PE outside weather permitting and please make sure their PE kits are named.
