Welcome to Red 1 and
Red 2 Class page.
21st September 2018
All the children have settled well now into their classes. The beginning of the Autumn is all about your children getting to know each other and new routines. We are very proud of them all!
Thank you for everyone who has returned their child's homework; we hope that you enjoyed learning at home with your child.
We have been learning about farms this week, particularly about the animals, where they live and what they like to eat. We have enjoyed singing 'Old MacDonald' and collaging farm animals.
In Maths we have looking at the number 2. We learned a rhyme to help us form the number correctly...
Can your child count out 2 from a small group of objects? Can they match number to quantity? Any practise at home will really help your child.

This week we have been busy inside and outside our classroom!
This week we have loved singing nursery rhymes, painting and playing team games with our friends. The children have been sent home with their first piece of homework. Learning with your child from an early age really will help with their development.

A huge well done to all of the children who started school with us this week. We are so impressed with how well they have settled in and adapted to school life. School dinners are also going down a treat!
You should all have received a photo of your child via Class Dojo - if you need support accessing this then please just ask!
Your child has been sent home with a reading book. Please read this book with your child and record in the reading diary. There will be an opportunity to 'Meet the Teachers' shortly, please keep an eye out for a letter.
We hope you all have a restful weekend and look forward to welcoming you back on Monday for your child's first full week.
The Early Years team are really excited to be welcoming a new group of children to our school and look forward to seeing them enjoy their first year of formal education.
Our topic for this first half term is Farm animals. We have lots of exciting activities planned and some fantastic stories to share with you.
Note to parents - Please don't worry about making sure PE Kits are in school this week. There is no rush and it takes us a few weeks to attempt a full PE kit change. The best thing that you can do to help is to ensure that you have put your child's name on all their clothes. You have no idea how much time this will save us.
When you bring your child/children to school in the mornings please feel free to bring them into class and help them put their things away, find their name card to practise writing their name, and then find their photo for the attendance board. (Photos will be available by the end of the week)
We have a library box that goes out most mornings and evenings so that children can borrow books to take home to read alongside their reading books. Please feel free to access this resource as we want the children to enjoy as many different books as possible. We will also send out details about the library bus visits as soon as possible. The quickest way to access the library bus service is to register your child at Eastwood library and then write their library number on the inside cover of their reading diary. Once we have their library number they can choose a book each time the library van visits and can return their books back to the library van. It is always great fun visiting the bus. If you don't get chance to get to the library we will give out forms for the library bus and will take these in September when the bus visits but it does mean that your child wont be able to borrow a book from the library bus until the next visit in October.
We will update the page each week with information about what we have been learning about and will also add information to Class Dojo.
We look forward to working with you all.
We are all looking forward to a great 2018-2019 School year
