Welcome to the Inca Jays
It is fantastic to see that many of you have already accepted your invite to our Google Classroom. If you have not already done so please do this before next Friday as I can only send work to those children who have joined.
Each Friday new spellings will be added ready for the following week. The children will have time at school to learn these but some enjoy having a copy to work on at home as well!
We have also added a maths recall sheet which includes ideas and activities to develop recall of key facts. This would ideally be practiced regularly over the half term for about 5 min at a time.
Please also read frequently with your child and hear their tricky words (if they have them). Children can change their home reading book on any day by putting it into the blue tray and selecting another from their colour band box. We do remind the children about this frequently and they should all soon be in the swing of it.
Our topic for the half term is food and if you wish to take their learning further at home here are a few examples of activities you may wish to try:
Choose and follow a simple recipe
Walk around your village and spot any food being grown/reared in the fields
look at the food in your fridge and sort it according to food group (fruit/veg, dairy, meat/fish/beans/pulses, bread/pasta/rice/cereals, fats/oils/sugar)
Design a balanced meal including foods from different groups
We would love to see any topic work that you have done at home and we will add it to our class home learning board.
This afternoon we have spoken to all the children about Google Classroom. The children in year 2 have all been taught how to log on but we will be sending log on information home with the year 1 children tomorrow. Please do not change your child's password as we then have no way of helping them log in at school.
Spellings will be set each Friday and a maths recall sheet set each half term.
Many thanks for all your help with reading at home so far. The children all seem very enthusiastic!6/9/21
Today has been an amazing day with the new class and it has been lovely to see all the children back after the break. The children were all keen to learn and listened well, although a few were very tired towards the end of the afternoon!
Our topic this half term is all about food, covering recipes, food groups, healthy eating and harvest.
P.E. will be on a Wednesday and Friday so please ensure that your child's P.E. kits is in school on these days .
Our day for visiting the school library to change books is a Tuesday.
Children are able to change their reading book on any day.
