Welcome to Rosen Class – Year 1
Class Teacher: Mrs Townsend

Welcome back! We hope you have enjoyed a restful break and are ready for a busy Term 4 in Rosen Class! Our ‘Big Question’ for this term is – What do aliens think of life on planet earth? Please click on the link to find out more! Topic web T 4
PE is every Thursday and Friday afternoon – children need to come to school on both days in their full outdoor PE kit.
Daily Phonics – We will be continuing to learn our Phase 5 phonics this term. The children will learn even more alternative pronunciations for graphemes such as ‘ie’ in ‘pie’ and ‘ie’ in ‘field’. For more informatin about how phonics is taught at St James, please click on this link Phonics at St James
Reading – underpins all that we do in Rosen Class. Every child uses a range of reading skills throughout the school day during structured learning activities and through continuous provision. We aim for each child to read to an adult once a week to check their progress before changing their reading book. As the children progress through the reading levels, they will explore a wider range of texts including poetry, non fiction, news articles and magazines.
Maths – As I’m sure you are aware, at St James we follow the White Rose Maths programme of study and for this term we will cover the units swapped last term. These include addition and subtraction (within 20) and place value (to 50).
Water bottles – Please ensure your child comes to school each day with a water bottle.
Contact – Class Dojo is the most effective way for you to contact us. If you need to share information, please send a personal message via this system as opposed to the office as we will be checking it before and after the school day and at lunch times.
If you have any questions or would like to know more about our plans for this term, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Mrs Townsend and Ms Archer
