Seacole

This year our class is named after Mary Seacole. At the beginning of this year we found out all about her and why is is significant in history.

Miss Cunningham is the class teacher in Seacole Class. 

 

Mrs Crawshawe is the HLTA in our class and teaches on Thursday afternoon and all day Friday.

 

Mr Manley is a TA in our class too and supports us with our learning.

We have lots of exciting learning and experiences to pack into this term! See the Spring Term Learning Summary below for an overview of what we will be learning across the curriculum and ideas for supporting at home. 

 

This is the timetable for a week in our class.

Physical Education

P.E. will be on MONDAY and FRIDAY each week.

P.E. kits should be bought into school on Mondays and can be taken home on Fridays.

P.E. is a team coloured t-shirt, blue shorts or a plain black or blue tracksuit. Trainers for footwear. 

All earrings MUST be removed for P.E.

 

 

In addition to our P.E. session each week, we will also visit the school woodland area on Thursday afternoons. 

Again, all children need to bring a change of warm clothing or a wetsuit and MUST have welly boots.

This is a great resource which we are so fortunate to have within our school grounds which offers a wealth of opportunities for children to apply their knowledge, skills and understanding in alternative ways whilst enjoying the great outdoors!

The whole-school expectations for homework are reading everyday, practising flashcards and times-tables.

 

Reading books and flashcards will come home daily in the bookbags.

Reading books will be changed once they have been read three times.

The first read is for phonic and sight-word application.

The second read through is to develop fluency.

The third read is for comprehension and understanding.

 

Children must be able to read flashcards on-sight and write them from memory before moving on.

 

Times-tables can be practised using Times-table Rockstars (TTRS).

Children have a log-in for this in their reading diary.

Let's Go to the Dough Disco!

Dough Disco is something we do in school to strengthen the muscles in our arms and hands to support our writing. Dough Disco also supports development in hand-eye coordination, listening and attention skills and core body strength as well.

If you don't have any play dough at home here is a recipe to make some:
2 cups all-purpose flour.
3/4 cup salt.
4 teaspoons cream of tartar.
2 cups lukewarm water.
2 Tablespoons of vegetable oil (coconut oil works too)
