Welcome to Sycamore Class
Years 1 and 2
Class Teacher: Miss Baines and Mrs Foster-Young
Class Teaching Assistant: Mrs Smith
This year Key Stage One will be using the teaching approach of Enquiry Based Learning. Talk to your children to find out more about this as they are incredibly enthusiastic with their new classroom set up. We will also be focusing a lot on mindfulness. Each morning the children will participate in the ‘Mindful Mile’ and Daily Gratitude. In addition, to this twice a week the children will join in with meditation.
This term we are going to be focusing on the topics ‘Me and My Family’ and ‘Home and Buildings’. For our ‘Me and My Family’ topic we shall be reading Grace and Family. We would like to encourage the children to read for at least 10 minutes every day. Home Learning is now set out differently, children are encouraged to complete the weekly tasks and hand it in on a Wednesday morning. Outstanding examples are rewarded with a Home Learning Award in Friday achievement assembly.
Forest School will be starting again for Class 2 every Monday morning from the 18th of September. If they do not already have wellies in school, please send your child in with some as soon as possible.
Show and Tell will continue to be on a Friday afternoon. Children can bring in anything educational that they wish to share with the class. If it is something out of the ordinary for example a pet please come and let me know beforehand.
