A warm welcome to the year 1 children who are joining us this week. It is a great chance to meet the children and for them to meet us.
Our team consists of:
Mrs. Shaw (Monday to Wednesday) class teacher
Miss. Wilkinson (Thursday and Friday) class teacher
Mrs. Pearson (all week) HLTA
Mrs. Secouet (every morning) TA
We aim to make your child feel welcome and valued in all we do. We expect them to uphold our school promises of having courage, being respectful and showing compassion. Please don't hesitate to contact us/talk to us at the end of the day if you have any questions.
This week we have planned a special topic based around the book, 'Beegu'. Beegu finds herself lost on planet Earth after her space ship crashes. She wants to find friends and to find a way back to her family. We will be exploring friendship and compassion through this story.
We began this morning by discovering the wreckage of the spaceship in the playground and finding Beegu in her space sleeping bag. The children were instantly engaged and made suggestions as to what had happened and who the strange little creature was.
Keep having a look at our pictures as we undertake trying to help Beegu find friendship on Earth and how to get back home to her family.
The Class 2 team
We start each morning with a little maths. Using materials and equipment makes maths meaningful and fun. It helps to develop conceptual learning.
Internet Safety Week 2021
This week marks internet safety week. Given the current circumstances we have put together a video for each key stage outlining some key tips for E-Safety, presented by Mr Acaster, and two hyperlinks. These links will take you to some top Internet Safety tips, and to a quiz to test your knowledge as well. We hope you find these resources useful.
