Welcome to our Year 1 class page.
For the Spring Term our learning focus will be 'Extreme Earth' which is going to be super exciting.
Please visit our class gallery under the School Community tab to see photographs of our work. http://www.crackleybank.staffs.sch.uk/our-community/gallery
For literacy, we will be performing work by Julia Donaldson with a focus on drama.
During the Autumn term we focused on 'The Snowman' by Raymond Briggs, Paddington Books by Michael Bond and learning about local coal mining.
Our Care in the Community saw us visit Rowan Court Care Home every other week, where we enjoyed reading books, asking questions, singing and chatting with new eldery friends.
P.E. will be every Wednesday. Please ensure the correct P.E. kit is in school. Children should wear black/blue plain shorts, with a plain, team coloured top and a pair of trainers or pumps. All jewellery must be removed before coming to school, children are not permitted to participate whilst wearing earrings.
Water bottles. We encourage all children to drink water throughout the day. Please supply a water bottle which can be kept in the classroom for easy access and returned home at the end of each day. Children are able to refill their bottles in school with fresh, cool water.
Class Dojo. To help develop our learning skills we use a program in class called, Class Dojo. Each child has their own Dojo (which they can alter) and points are awarded throughout the day with a weekly winner. You can even check your child’s progress online throughout the day or by downloading a free app. A code has been sent home so that you can sign in to see your child’s points.
Maths Whizz. - www.mathswhizz.co.uk
Follow the link to help develop your child's confidence and skills in mathematics. Plus it's lots of fun too!
Reading books should be brought to school each day as your child will have the opportunity to read to others and swap read books for new ones.
Homework – Please support us with this as it helps the children to practise their learning from the week. Homework is due in on a Wednesday. If your child needs support please let me know.
