FS2 / YR1 Crocodile
Crocodile Class - Foundation Stage 2 and Year 1
Welcome to Crocodile Class!
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. Mrs Wain is currently teaching the class alongside two teaching assistants Miss Burn and Mrs Griffiths.
We have lots of exciting activities planned for the Spring term! We are going to be learning all about the Best of British in Spring 1 and all about The Great Fire of London in Spring 2.
Our FS2 children will continue to learn about our environment and the people who help us. They will have the opportunity to explore the areas of provision both inside and outside the classroom, as well as spending time in the bike area with the Zebra FS2 children.
The Year 1 children will be working on phonics, english and maths lessons daily along with history/geography, science, 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 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.
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. All FS2 and Year 1 children will be heard three times a week in school using a text linked to our Little Wandle phonics scheme.
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.
For our Year 1 children maths homework will be sent out every Friday. We 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. For FS2 children half termly homework linked to their topic will be sent home.
PE DAYS FOR CROCODILE ARE A MONDAY & A THURSDAY EVERY WEEK
