Welcome back Grasshoppers!

Welcome back!

I hope you have all had a wonderful Summer break and enjoyed spending time with your families.

Hopefully, you all feel refreshed and ready for the new school year ahead!

Please find below some information about the ‘Grasshoppers’ class.

Monday – Thursday, the class is taught by Mrs Nicky Morris.

On a Friday, the class will be taught by Mrs Claire Wright.

Grasshoppers will be supported in class, at various times, by Mrs Markall, Mr Smith or Mrs Robinson.

This year, we have 26 children in class: 22 Year 2 children and 4 Year 1 children.

 

PE Days

Monday: Gymnastics & Dance (Indoor PE kit)

Friday: Games (Outdoor PE kit)

Water bottles

Please can water bottles be plastic, not metal and they must have non spill spouts. Children need to have a clean water bottle in school every day.

Bags and Coats

The children will need one bag for their belongings which will be placed in the cloakroom at the start of the day. They will bring their reading book, reading record and water bottle into the classroom only. There will be a box outside the classroom for lunchboxes to be stored.

Children must bring a warm, waterproof coat every day. They will be going outside at playtime whatever the weather.

Please ensure that all belongings are named, especially school jumpers, cardigans, coats and bags.

Hair

Long hair (below shoulder length) should be tied back. Hair should be kept out of children’s eyes using headbands or clips.

Trinkets and toys

Please can you ensure that the children do not bring into school trinkets or other small toys from home.

Reading

The children will be expected to read regularly throughout the week and have their record signed by an adult.

The children must bring their reading record and reading book to school every day. They need to bring them into class and place them in the blue box.

Homework

Homework is reading, learning the spellings for their year groups and learning their times tables. To support them to do this they will have access to ‘Spelling Shed’, ‘Numbots’ and ‘Times Table Rock Stars’.

I will give the children log in details for these and put more detailed information about spellings and times tables at the beginning of term.

(You can also find our school ‘Homework Policy’ on the school website.)

Please look out for regular updates on the Grasshoppers page of the school website. Here you will find reminders, photographs and information about the curriculum we follow in class.

All this information can also be found in the ‘Information’ section on our Grasshoppers class page.
