Welcome to Rosen Class – Year 1
Class Teacher: Ms Baker & Mrs Townsend
TA: Mrs Sharp
Welcome back to the Spring Term in Rosen Class. We are looking forwards to working with both you and your children over the next half term.
This term our big question is ‘Why can’t a meerkat live at the North Pole?’. We will be reading the book Meerkat Mail and delving into the exploits of Sunny the Meerkat as he moves around the globe. We will be finding out about Meerkats and writing questions about them and finally a non-chronological report.
Reading will continue both through the book Meerkat Mail and also on an individual basis. We will be hearing children read as often as possible and welcome support from parents to do this. It is also important that you continue to hear your child read at home as much as possible. When you have heard them read, please record this in their reading record.
In our topic work and science, we will be looking at how Meerkats are adapted to their environment and also how other animals are adapted their specific environments. We will be looking at materials and trying to decide on the best material to make Sunny the Meerkat an effective coat. We are hoping to finish the topic with a trip – more of that later!
In maths we will be looking at addition and subtraction, and also continuing with the CLICK and LEARN IT challenges. The Maths Family Toolkit will be sent home weekly as before Christmas.
PE sessions will be on a Wednesday (gym) and Thursday (dance), but please do make sure your child has their PE kit in school every day as the timetable may be subject to change.
This term the weather is often cold and wet. Please make sure that your child has a coat and wellies in school so that they are appropriately dressed at break and lunch times.
We will be continuing to use the class dojo system as a quick and easy way for you to contact us. If you need to give us some information, please use this system as opposed to the office as we will be checking it before the school day and at lunch times.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Ms Baker, Mrs Townsend and Mrs Sharp
