Y1, Jeffers Class

 

Welcome to Jeffers Class!

Our teacher is Miss Swan and our teaching assistant is called Mrs Porter. We are a fun and hard working class. We always try our best and aren’t afraid to make mistakes. We understand that this is how we learn.

Jeffers Class is named after an author called Oliver Jeffers. He illustrates and writes lots of stories such as ‘Lost and Found’, ‘How to Catch a Star’, and ‘The Way Back Home’. We love learning about and reading books by our class author!

We have lots of fun topics planned and we get to go on lots of trips. We love having enthusiastic parent helpers come with us.

Curriculum:

Topics:

Autumn 1 – Paws, Claws and Whiskers: Wild and wonderful animals.

Please see the detailed curriculum map to look for coverage of all subjects across the term.

PE:

Could you please make sure that all school uniform, including P.E. kit, is clearly labelled so that missing items can make their way back to your child as soon as possible. The children will have P.E. every TUESDAY AFTERNOON for the duration of the Autumn term. Please make sure that your child has their P.E. kit in for this day.

Reading:

Children need to read to an adult or be read to by an adult for 10 minutes each day. Reading must be recorded in their reading records, which are checked weekly at school. Please support your child to develop a lifelong love of reading.

Contact:

If there is anything you would like to talk to me about in regards to your child and their learning please do catch me at the end of the day. I am happy to talk to you at the end of the day or to arrange a meeting at a convenient time.

I look forward to working with and getting to know your child and you.

Best wishes,

Miss Swan
