Crocodile Class - Foundation Stage 2 and Year 1 

Mr Oggelsby

Information

Our class PE days are Tuesday and Friday.  Children will need to come in a suitable PE kit on those days. Thank you. 

 

Welcome to Crocodile Class!

About Us

Crocodile Class is a mixed Year 1 and Foundation Stage 2 class. We have 30 children in total, 20 Year 1 children and 10 Foundation Stage. Mr Oggelsby is the class teacher and Mrs Oldfield is the teaching assistant.

 

Topic

We have lots of exciting activities planned for Spring term! Our new topic is called Poles Apart!  and we will be learning about the world around us and what is different. In our history and geography lessons we will be learning about hot and cold places and people who explored them. In Science we will be taking a look at different animals, their habitat and how they adapt to survive.

 

As well as this we will also be working on English and maths lessons daily along with phonics, spelling, RE, ICT, PE and music. In our English lessons we will be sharing different types of text for example persuasive leaflets and poems where we will try to use our developing phonics knowledge to write sentences that include capital letters and full stops. Where possible we will try and link our topic to all our sessions. All the children will have access to continuous provision to enhance their learning experience and for the Year 1 children, this allows them to build on from their learning journey in Foundation Stage.

 

For our year ones we will be starting the journey of learning our times table, the first being the 2 times table followed by the 5 and 10s.

 

Don’t forget our daily reading challenge, a single read for everyday of the week including weekends needs to be put in your child’s planner so that they can move across the rainbow to our pot of gold.

Latest Newsletter

Reading Books

We ask that you sign their planners to let us know if they have finished the book or what page they have read up to. We are keen to develop fluency so we like to encourage children to re-read their books before changing them. We ask that children read at least three times a week at home. 

 

Outdoor Learning

As we have a fabulous garden area, we will also be using this area to enhance our learning, so please send children with a coat to school each day.

 

Homework and Spellings

Homework and spellings are sent out every Friday. Homework is due back the following Friday and the spelling quiz will also take place on the following Friday. Every half term children will receive a topic booklet for them to carry out lots of Chloe Creative work at home relating to our topic. We do encourage the children to be independent and hand their homework into the homework tray as they come into the classroom. Please help us by reminding them to do this as they come into school.
