Red 1 Class
Welcome to Red 1
We are a friendly and creative class of children who love to learn!
Our teacher is Mrs Harrison!
She is joined by the magnificent Mrs Akhtar and the marvellous Mrs Cooper!
Here are some important notes for our adults to remember!
- Our PE day is a Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure you send your child to school in clothes they are going to find easier to get on and off (i.e. no buttons, tights, and lace up shoes). ALL uniform and PE clothes need to be named alongside all jumpers, cardigans, coats and jackets that your child may wear for school. It is also a good idea to name their shoes – on PE day all 30 children get changed and unchanged together so without names on their items, clothing can get easily mixed up!
As we are now practising for sports day please send your child with sensible shoes i.e. trainers in their PE bag and apply sun cream in the morning. Please note that teachers cannot apply sun cream for children.
- Your child needs a reading folder which they must bring to school every day! Please check your child’s reading folder each evening as there may be homework, letters or notes from your child’s class teacher.
- Every child is entitled to a free school dinner – give them a try, they’re yummy!
- Library day is currently on a Tuesday, please ensure your child’s library bag is in school on this day as their books will be changed and sent home.
This term our topic is;
Fairy tales and Fantasy!
We will be looking at stories that involve superheroes, wizards and fantasy characters as well as comparing these to more traditional fairy tale stories. Please have a look at our topic web below for more information!!
These stories will help us to compare basic genres, begin to write our own stories and delve a little deeper into a character from a book.
Have a look at this fun website for games and videos based on the story room on the broom!
