Welcome! We are Fallow Class and we are Y1 and Y2 pupils
During the Spring Term we will be very busy learning about the weather systems around the world and comparing it with our own in Chilton Foliat. This will be taught through our topic of ‘Cloudy with a chance of meatballs’.
Homework in Fallow Class is set fortnightly as a result of feedback from parents. Therefore homework will continue to be due in every other Tuesday. I will also continue to send out further information to add to the Parent Help pack to support homework.
Please make sure you keep up to date with the news and events by reading emails, notes at the bottom of homework and making regular visits to the school website.
Reading – Both Year 1 and Year 2 children should read at least 1 page per day. Please continue to record the children’s progress within the reading log each day. Further information and support can be found in the Parent Help Pack.
Maths – The children will be given a variety of online activities, games, practical activities and worksheets to reinforce their learning. A particularly helpful and fun website is http://www.ictgames.com/caterpillar_slider.html
Writing – Where possible please allow the children to complete activities independently after a discussion about what they need to achieve. However please encourage children to spell the High Frequency Words correctly (a copy can be found in the Parent Help Pack). We do like the children to challenge themselves to use ‘more grown up words’ using the phonic knowledge where appropriate.
Spellings will be set weekly when the phonics groups are up and running. The children will receive spelling lists each Monday and will be tested each Friday. We will continue to use a ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check’ system.
Please ensure that P.E kits are in school Monday to Friday. The children need to have red shorts or tracksuit bottoms, a white T. Shirt and trainers. If possible, please can the children have a change of socks for P.E, especially during hot weather! As always please ensure all clothing including socks are labelled. You would be surprised where clothes can end up, no matter how careful we all seem to be!
This term the children will be swimming on Wednesday afternoons. Please ensure the children arrive in school wearing their PE kit to ensure ease of changing independently at the swimming pool.
Children are allowed to bring bottles to school (please also ensure they are labelled) and stored above their pegs in the cloakroom area. During the day the children should only have water. Any fresh juices should only be consumed with lunchtime food.
If you have any further questions, please come in for a chat. If you are unable to come in to school then please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thank you in advance for your support
