Stingray Class September 2018 !
Welcome to the Stingray Class page! This year Stingray Class will be taught by Miss Roberts and Mrs Messenger, who will teach us on a Thursday. Mrs Rose and Mrs Francis are the other adults who will be supporting the learning within our class.
Please feel free to email me at email@example.com if you have any queries or questions and I will reply as soon as possible.
As of this Friday (21/09/18), we will be issuing a phonics activity for the children to complete for homework. This is in addition to the homework expectations outlined at our recent parent meetings.
The children can return their homework once it has been completed. The homework will be issued each Friday. Some children will require adult support to complete the activities.
Below are the Year 1 and 2 common exception word lists. These are a list of words that the children need to be able to spell by the end of year 1 and 2. Each child will be coming home with a copy of these spellings for you to refer to at home and each week the children will be tested on a select few of the year 2 words. Please ensure that your children are confident in being able to spell all of the expected year 1 words.
Stingray WOW of the week is
In Friday Worship one child is selected from each class as our WOW child. During the week this child has demonstrated something that has WOWED their teachers.
Autumn Term Learning
When we return in September, out first topic is called 'Land Ahoy'. We will be writing stories, poetry, information books and postcards. We will be learning how to use a map whilst developing our location knowledge. We will be learning about significant historical figures like Captain James Cook. Within Science we will be learning about everyday materials and their properties. We will then be using this knowledge to help us make informed decisions for when we make our own boats!
In Maths, we will be developing our understanding of Place Value, Addition and Subtraction. This learning will be supported by the exploration of lots of different resources and a variety of hands on experiences.
Please find a book list below. All of these books are relevant to our new topic so if you get the opportunity to enjoy some of these at home that would be brilliant! Also, if you do have any of these books please do bring them into school for us to share together.
