This week in Rufford Class we have been learning how to add and subtract money. In Literacy, we have been writing our own instructions. In Science, we have been learning all about recycling.
Welcome to Rufford Class for the academic year 2019-2020. My name is Miss Marsh and I will be Rufford Class teacher for the next year. As well as myself, Miss Halpin and Miss Denyer will be working with children in our class during the week.
We will be covering a range of exciting and interesting topics this year, which the children have chosen. Our first topic is Toys. We will be learning about toys from the past and how they have changed over time.
As well as Toys, we will be learning about a wide range of topics this year including Castles, Fairytales and Mythical Creatures, the Rainforest, Under the Sea, the BFG and Animals. Each topic will have a learning overview that will be shared with parents/carers.
PE will be taught on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Some PE lessons will be outdoors so the children should bring appropriate clothing and footwear to all lessons. It is recommended that children have their school PE kit in all week.
Homework will be given on a Friday and collected in on a Wednesday. The homework will be based on what we have been learning that week or researching the next week’s topic. Spellings and Phonics homework will also be given. Spelling tests will be carried out on the following Friday. If you or your child have any queries about the homework please do not hesitate to contact me.
Children are expected to read at least three times a week at home, and this should be recorded in their reading diary in order for them to receive a stamp. This practise plays a key role in developing children’s reading skills and fostering a love for reading. Once six stamps have been collected they will receive a prize and move on to the next bookmark.
Again, please feel free to contact me if you or your child have any worries in the next year.
