KOOKABURRA YEAR 1
Welcome to Kookaburras Class
This term our topic will be 'Coastlines’. We will be learning to:
- Use and read maps
- Learn about compass directions
- Learn more about our own hometown
- Human and Physical features of coastal regions.
Our phonics scheme is called ‘My Letters and Sounds’. This term we are learning Phase 5 sounds. The children will bring home a phonics book to practice their sounds at home. This book should be brought to school every day in their school book bag. Please read each book twice to encourage fluency.
For those who are confident and fluent in their Phonics, they will be tested using our Salford Reading Assessment - these children will bring home colour-banded books. These will be changed once the book has been completed as these are slightly longer texts.
Our teacher is Miss Coleman and we are supported by Mrs Gilchrist and Miss Binstead.
On a Wednesday, we are also lucky to have lessons with other teachers in the school:
Mrs Konikowska teaches us R.E; Mrs Alvarez teaches us Spanish and Mrs Wallington teaches us Music.
Our P.E. day (this term) is Thursday so please wear P.E. kits to school on that day. No earrings or jewelry are allowed and long hair must be tied back.
Please make sure that children have their own water bottles that they can bring to school daily. Please make sure that the bottle is named. Please label all clothes clearly with the children's names.
Class Dojo is our main point of contact, I will update this platform regularly. If you ever have any questions or queries, please send me a message through that platform and I will get back to you ASAP.
