Welcome to Lion Class with Mrs Lyon!
5th September 2017
Welcome to Lion Class. I thought it may be useful to have a little more information about us.
Our topic for this term will be ‘Who am I?’ This will include learning about our bodies and senses. Please encourage your child to bring in items/books etc to support their topic work. We have an ‘Investigation/Interesting Area’ in the classroom where we display these items for the children to look at.
In Maths we will be learning about sorting, numbers, counting, addition, and height linked to our topic work.
In English as well as the daily Phonics and Handwriting activities we will be looking at rhymes and rhyming stories.
Lion class weekly Learning Intentions will be put on our class KLZ page once you are given log in details. The weekly Learning Intentions will give you a general overview about what we will be learning in the week ahead.
Please can I encourage all parents to support their child in their learning by using their Home Learning Journals (these will be in your child’s book bag by the end of the week). Please see the note explaining their use stuck inside the front cover.
Please can all parents make sure that every item of clothing including P.E kits and shoes are clearly named. Please also make sure you show your child where their clothes are named so they learn to recognise their names in their own clothes!
We would like to invite you all to our Beginners’ Service for Reception children on Friday 8th September at 9am in the school hall. Your child will be presented with a certificate and welcomed to the school. All parents are welcome to stay for coffee after the service.
All parents are invited to Celebration Assembly every Friday at 9am when we celebrate children’s achievements.
Class meeting for all parents
There will be a brief meeting for Lion class parents on Thursday 7th September at 12noon in Lion Class. During this meeting we will explain how we teach phonics and reading plus other information about the class. All Lion Class children will be supervised on the playground during this meeting.
Finally, please don’t hesitate to come and see us if you have any queries, worries or concerns about your child. Please come and tell us about all the good things too!
