Welcome to Rabbits Class...
A doctor came to visit us in Rabbits class. We learnt about our skeletons and how our hearts beat, then we took our teddies to visit the doctor. Each teddy was looked at and a prescription given - most of our teddies needed lots of rest and cuddles!
Today, Rabbits class had a visit from two dentists. They explained to the children what causes plaque to build up on teeth and discussed the importance of brushing for two minutes twice a day. The children sorted foods into those which are good for our teeth and those which are not.
In Science we have been learning all about our bodies. We took part in some experiments to learn more about our senses. It was lots of fun!
Welcome to the new school year. I hope you all had an enjoyable and relaxing summer holidays. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed hearing all about them from your children!
Just a few reminders for the year ahead:
Miss Titchener will be teaching in Rabbits class on a Thursday. I will still be in school each Thursday if you need to see me for any reason.
PE Kits, including trainers, should be brought into school on a Monday and remain in school for the week. Our PE days are on a Tuesday and Wednesday, with some sessions taking place outdoors. If your child has earrings, please remove them for PE days or provide tape for them to be covered.
Reading books will be changed weekly, each Monday. Please ensure children have their book and journal in school every day as they will be heard throughout the week by staff and volunteers. Please also encourage your child to read regularly at home and note in their reading journal that you have heard them read as this helps us to see whether or not their books need changing.
Homework will be set on a Friday and will be due in the following Thursday to allow time for marking before the next piece is set. Weekly spellings will also be sent home on a Friday and tested the following week. Within the next few weeks, your child will bring home a ‘Handy Maths Pack’ which you can use throughout the year to support them with weekly maths challenges. Children are required to learn their 2, 5 and 10 times tables, both multiplication and division facts. Additionally, children in year 2 need to learn their 3 times table. Any support for this at home would be greatly appreciated.
The class prayer bag will be sent home with a different child each week. If it is your child’s turn, please take some time to discuss the items in the bag and help your child to write a thought or prayer in the book. This will be shared with the class.
Show and Tell
Please see the attached ‘Show and Tell’ rota. As many of the children often wish to share things with the class, I have allocated each child two slots this term and ask that you please only allow your child to bring in their show and tell on their allotted day to save any upset. Please do not let your child bring in toys from home on any other day.
Our topic this term is ‘All About Me’. The children will be learning about the human body in Science, thinking about where they come from and the world around them in Geography and learning how to keep their bodies and minds healthy in PSHE. For more information about this topic and other subjects, please see the topic web on the school website.
Finally, if you have any concerns about any aspect of your child’s learning, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Miss Jessica Price
This term our topic is 'All About Me!' The children will be learning the story of Elmer.
We've had a busy first week in Rabbits Class! We have written lots about our summer holidays, completed maths challenges and begun to learn all about the parts of the body.
