Creswell Class

Hello and welcome to Creswell Class!

Foundation 2 and Year 1

 

A big welcome to everyone in Creswell Class, I hope you are all ready for a fun and exciting year. Here are our topics for this year -

Autumn term 1 – Enchanted Worlds — Woodland Animals, Trolls, Mythical creatures and the traditional tale of Hansel and Gretel. We will be designing and creating our own fairy/pixie puppets.

Autumn term 2 – Frozen Planet - What would it be like to work in our very own ice-cream factory? Are we up to the challenge of creating a new awesome flavour? In this topic we will also be looking at the Arctic, polar bears and penguins and also the film Frozen.

 

Spring term 1 – Superheroes -We will be looking at famous superheroes and writing our own superhero adventures. We will also be designing our very own superhero capes! We will be reading the ‘Traction Man’ stories by Mini Grey.

Spring term 2 – Moon Zoom! - CRASH! What’s that landed in the playground? Let’s go take a look—Stand back everyone...it looks like a UFO has crash landed! We will be learning about Space, time travel, planets and famous astronauts.

 

Summer term 1 – Rio De Vida - Hot! Hot! Hot! Let’s dance to the Samba beat! In this topic we will be learning all about Brazil/Rio. We will be looking at the country, carnivals, the music and ‘Rio’ the film.

Summer term 2 – Bright Lights, Big City - What do you know about England’s capital city? Let’s find out about our capital city including history, transport and famous landmarks.

 

Below I have tried to answer some questions that will hopefully give you more of an insight into our school day. If you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and see me.

 

Who will be my teachers in Creswell class?

Your teachers will be Mr Bell, Mrs Batters and Miss Denyer. If your grown – up’s have any questions please tell them to come and ask us any questions/concerns. The best time to speak to Mr Bell is after school, as you can appreciate that during the morning we need to register and begin lessons. Miss Denyer, Mrs Batters and Mrs Green will be on the door each morning. Alternatively your adults can always call the school to arrange a time to come in and see us.

 

 

Which day do I need a P.E Kit and what shall I wear? -

It is a good idea to bring your kit with you on a Monday morning and collect it for washing on a Friday. Our P.E days are Wednesday (am) and Thursday (pm). This term you will need some shorts, a T-shirt and some plimsolls/trainers. Long hair must be tied up and no jewellery please. Also make sure your name is in everything!

 

When do I need to hand my homework in?

You will be given a book called a ‘Learning Journal’. In this book will be any messages from myself and a short homework task/spellings etc. This will be given out on Friday and collected in on Wednesday. The task will be a fun task either about something we have been learning about in class or researching something for the following week. It will also include a list of phonic sounds and keywords to practise for the following week. Let me know if you have trouble accessing a computer at home for these tasks. You will be rewarded for how hard you try with tree tokens. You can also write a comment/message in these books, if you want to ask me anything.

 

Can I bring my own toys in from home?

I would always advise that your toys stay at home, unless you have been asked to bring something in for show and tell or for an activity in class. Each week I will choose a different tree team to take part in ‘Show and Tell’. Show and Tell days will be on Monday and Friday, during snack times.

 

Will I be having a snack?

We will be having a piece of fruit/veg and a drink each morning. Water will always be on offer at anytime during the day. So don’t forget to bring your water bottle each day.

 

What happens at home time?

We will open the gates at 3.15pm and send you to your grown-up as we see them. Please ask your grown-up to stand near our gate so that it is easy to see them. If anyone different will be collecting you, please tell your grown-up to let us know that morning.

 

I am really looking forward to working with you all this year!
