Welcome to Elderberry Class!
In Elderberry Class the children are taught by me, Mrs Draper, on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with Mrs Seymour teaching the children on a Fridat. Miss Halcombe is our class teaching assistant. Each morning I will be on the gate if you have any concerns or questions. Now the children are in Year Two there is an expectation that they start to become more independent and take responsibility for their belongings and learning.
Each day the children will require the following things:
Reading Book and Reading Record – each day we will check and change the books the children are reading at home from the banded colour scheme. Please make sure you have initialled or commented to show the book has been completed.
Coat – particularly when it is cold and wet.
Water Bottle – please only send the children in with water in their bottles for in the
Snack – children are able to have a fruit snack at break time.
PE will be on Monday and Tuesday afternoons. Chris will be teaching the children Judo on a Monday afternoon, with Richard delivering the outside PE curriculum on a Tuesday.
On a Monday and a Tuesday the children may come to school in their PE kit, please make sure they have a spare set in school, in the event that they get wet or muddy, particularly in the winter months!
If your child is not able to take part in PE due to injury, please ensure you send an email to email@example.com stating this to myself.
15 minutes reading – this needs to be initialled by a parent every night.
5 minutes times tables practice (2, 5 and 10 times tables)
5 minutes spelling practice.
This will be set on a Tuesday to be handed in the following Monday.
The children will have a Maths and English task linked to the learning each week. The tasks are set specifically to the learning need of your child.
