Dear Parents and Carers
Welcome to Rufford Class, I hope you are all looking forward to this next academic year. This year as well as having myself, Mrs Green will be helping us in class during the mornings.
Our first topic will be Travel and Transport, where we will learn about how transport has changed over the last 100 years. We have lots of creative activities planned which I hope the children will enjoy.
As well as Travel and Transport, we will be learning about a wide range of topics this year including Toys, Sensational Safari, Kings and Queens, Castles and Beside the Seaside. Each topic will have a learning overview that will be shared with parents.
PE will be taught on a Monday and Wednesday. Some PE lessons will be outdoors so the children should bring appropriate clothing and footwear to all lessons. Please ensure that P.E kits are in school on a Monday morning.
Our reading scheme will continue from last year therefore it is important for your child to read at home at least three times a week. Please ensure you write in their diary. Diaries will be checked on a Monday and books will be changed on a Monday and Friday.
Homework will be given on a Friday and collected on a Wednesday. The homework will be based on what we have been learning that week or researching the next week’s topic. Spellings will also be given. If you or your child have any queries about the homework please do not hesitate to contact me.
Again, please feel free to contact me if you or your child have any worries in the next year.
Miss L. Tomlinson
