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. Since we last met, I have been thinking about all the lovely ideas you suggested for this year. Here are the names of some of the topics for this year:

 

Autumn 1 - My world - It’s all about you! Let’s introduce ourselves, let’s share where we live and who our family is. We will also be learning about our bodies. How many bones do we have in our body? Why are all our eyes different colours? Let’s celebrate being you!

Autumn 2 - Once upon a time…- Take a journey through some of the greatest stories of all time. From traditional stories involving an extremely hungry wolf to an incredible adventure with a lost stick! What is your favourite story of all time?

 

Spring 1 - Dinosaur Planet -Stomp, crash, RRRAGH! Watch out everyone - the dinosaurs are on the prowl! They’re rampaging across the dusty earth, swishing their enormous tails and baring their fearsome teeth…Let’s explore the Dinosaur Planet! Doyouthinkhesawus? Yes he did… RUN!

Spring 2 - Splendid skies - Imagine floating high above land and sea on a bed of clouds, silently sweeping by in the breeze. Back down to earth, let’s take a walk outdoors. But what should we wear? Wellington boots? A sun hat? Maybe a warm coat? How do we know what the weather will be like today? What weather do you prefer? Sunshine, snow, storms or showers? Get your wellingtons on - let’s go!

 

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 – ups 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. Please make sure your drinks bottle is labelled too!

 

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 all of you this year.

Mr Bell
