Welcome to Class One's Webpage.
We have had such a fantastic first half term at school. Have a look below for some more photos of us enjoying the past few weeks. We have been taking part in lots of Autumnal activities such as making pumpkin soup and harvest bread. We also all got very excited when the big tree outside our garden was chopped down! Mrs Chapman and I hope you have all enjoyed your half term holidays and are feeling refreshed and ready to start back at school.
This half term, our topic will be Celebrations and Festivals. We will be thinking ahead to Christmas and practicing for the nativity play. As well as this, we will be exploring different festivals both in the UK and worldwide. Please find the Theme Grid and Homework Grid below.
We are looking forward to see what the next few weeks of learning brings!
Wow, can you believe we are already half way through our first half term of school! The time is flying past. We have been doing so much and the children are progressing and learning so quickly.
Here are some photographs of what we have been up to over the past few weeks. The nursery children have been reading the Ugly Duckling and, more recently, have been focussing on Hickory Dickory Dock (look at our big clock that we have in our classroom!) We have also been painting self portraits, looking at different kinds of families, making models and, of course, getting messy!
We hope you enjoy seeing what we have been up to. Mrs Chapman and I are really enjoying seeing what you have been doing at home on Tapestry too!
Welcome to Roecliffe and to Class 1,
Mrs Chapman and I hope you have all had a wonderful summer holiday. We are excited for the year ahead and everything that we have planned. It has been my first couple of days in the classroom too (and Mrs Chapman's first September) so we have all enjoyed getting to know each other and everyone else in school over the past couple of days.
As you will know, this year, the children's learning will be being documented through a programme called Tapestry. This is available through a free app or online. Each of you should have a parents log in so you can see what the children have been doing during the school day. You can also comment on or like the observations which we would find very useful (especially if you have any information to add about what your child enjoys doing at home). Most day-to-day information that you need will be uploaded to Tapestry. Here on the school website you will find information regarding our themes for the start of each term, along with any exciting things that we have been doing that we would like to share with everyone.
Our theme for this term is "This is Me" (inspired by The Greatest Showman). We thought this was the perfect theme to begin the school year and we can't wait to get to know all your children. There is some additional information detailing what we will be learning on the theme grid. It would be useful if you could read through it so you can continue the learning at home! We also have a homework grid with small activities for your children to do. This will be coming home in a few days time in your child's homework book. Please find the theme grid and homework grid below.
We hope that you enjoy sharing your child's learning with them. Feel free to pop into the classroom for a chat at any time with either myself or Mrs Chapman if you have any questions.
Miss Harrison and Mrs Chapman
