Pine (Y1 & Y2)

 
Hooray! Back to School!
Welcome to Pine Class!
 
Teacher: Miss Markham
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Rogers
 
 
AT LAST!
 
It has been delightful to see the children back in school and the new pine class have settled in amazingly! There have been a few changes this year, like moving classrooms and creating an outdoor area for the children to learn in - it has been very popular this week!
 
Below is the planner for this term so please take a look to find out what your children are learning. This will allow you to help them at home or simply talk about their day with them!
HELPFUL BITS...
In Pine class, we start the day with morning activities that let us practice our handwriting.
 
Maths
This term, we are learning about place value, addition and subtraction. It is very important that we know our 10s and 1s as this will help us lots this term!
 
Have a look on here for some fun games to play:
 
Phonics/SPAG
We have a 20 minute phonics session - most children will be recapping from Phase 3 this term. We will play lots of games to practice and make sure we know them so that it helps us read well.
 
 
English (Writing)
This term, we will be getting used to writing again and doing lots of different types based on the book, 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers.
 
Afterwards, we will look at letter writing and have fun reading the book, 'Dear Teacher'.
  
Good spelling and handwriting are essential!
Handwriting must be neat and tidy with correct letter formation and clear spacing between words. Those joining, should ensure that each letter is clear to see.
 
Reading
It is absolutely essential that all children read every day. This can be a mixture of you reading to them and them reading to you, in turn.
Read lots and lots of different books (fiction and non-fiction), comics, food packaging - anything!
 
Afternoons
Afternoons in Pine class are full of different fun and exciting things!
This term we will be learning about coding in computing. There is a free App that you can download for this: https://www.scratchjr.org/
 
In Science this term, we are learning about seasons and how this links with varying day lengths. This learning will continue throughout the year as the seasons change.
 
In history, we will be learning about our family history and finding out what it was like when our Grandparents were little. Children will need to talk to their grandparents to find out lots of information and share it with the class to help each other learn!
 
Art is all about animals and exploring the 7 continents. We will be looking at drawing techniques and adding tints and tones to paint.
