Welcome to Yellow Class

Term 1 

We have had a great first term in Yellow Class. The children have settled well into school life and have made lots of new friends. It has been lovely to see them making new friendships and seeing all of their personalities come through.

Our ipads were away being fixed and having updates for 2 weeks. Now they are back we can begin taking photos and documenting the children's learning again. Please see below photos of the children in the resource area. 


We have been looking for signs of Autumn and discussing the changes that are happening. We went out into the school grounds to collect leaves and we talked about all of the different colours we could see. We have also read stories around animals that are getting ready to hibernate and learning lots of language relating to Autumn. 

In phonics we have now learnt the following sounds, s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k and the sight word I. In literacy this week we had a go at hearing the initial sound and writing it down in objects that we would take with us if we were hibernating.

On Thursday your child's reading record and reading books will be sent home along with a phonics folder. Please read the enclosed letters and if you have any questions please come and see me.

Have a lovely half term break and we will see you back in Term 2.

Our First Week Full Time

The children have had a great week at school and have settled in well as a class of 30. They have done really well at lunchtime and have settled into the routine of lunchtimes. 

We have been listening to and retelling the story of 'We're going on a bear hunt' and have been writing messages to the bear. The children enjoyed moving in different ways during PE and have been learning about rhyming words in phonics. On Friday we visited Pegasus class. The Year 2 children had been writing an autobiography and read them to us. 

Our First Week at School

The children have settled into school really well. They have become familiar with their new environment and are starting to make new friends. We have been on a tour of school and said hello to Mr Ruck in his office, played in the resource area and outside. We have also explored the forest. This week we are also going to go on the library bus and move in different ways around the hall for PE.

We have really enjoyed meeting and spending time with all of the children in Yellow Class. Keep checking back to the Class Page for updates and photos.
