Fal Class

Welcome back!

Hope you have had a lovely summer break and enjoyed what sunny weather we had!
Welcome back and to Year 1, we can’t wait to start a new learning adventure together.
We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the Fal class team;

Ms White- Class teacher
Mrs Weston – Teaching Assistant (Mondays and Tuesdays)
Mrs Grimes- Teaching Assistant (Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays)

This term the children wanted to learn about Under the Sea. We will be learning about the creatures we might find under the sea, shipwrecks and the effects of plastics on our oceans and sea creatures.

We will be launching our new topic on Monday 9th September. We would like to invite the children to bring in a piece of treasure- this can be anything that is special to them. We will share these treasures with the class. They will be participating in many different activities to enthuse and introduce them to their new project.

There are several exciting trips planned, which we will give you more details about nearer to the time.

PE days and Kit
Our PE day is Thursday. Please can you ensure that your child has a t-shirt, shorts and PE shoes in school for this session. One of the best ways for remembering this is putting it in a separate bag that remains on your child’s peg until each half term holiday. Girls must have their hair tied up for PE.

Home learning
Home learning will continue to be sent out on Thursday and needs to be back in on Monday.
Spellings will be tested each Friday in Fal class, spellings will be sent home in their books. Please practice these spellings with your child and play fun games to help them learn how to spell. They will move on to the next set of spellings when they answer them all correctly. Please ensure their spelling book is in on a Friday so that new spellings can be sent home.

Reading
Please ensure your child brings their reading diaries and book to school every day. We will be listening to children read however, this won’t be possible if they have no book. Please also ensure that you sign in their diary when they have finished reading their book, so that we can give them a new one to take home.

We are looking forward to sharing our fantastic learning with you.
