The Federation of Church Schools of Shalfleet and Yarmouth

F Year 1 & 2

Welcome to Year 1 and 2 – Yellow Class

Staff – I am Miss Poulton, the class teacher for years 1 and 2. Teaching assistant support every morning will be provided by Mrs Grieve. Forest School on a Wednesday morning will be led by Miss Gates, while P.E. on Wednesdays and Fridays will be led by Mr McCormack.

Early morning routine – For the Autumn term, please continue to enter by our classroom door at 8.50am. As we settle in to our routines, early morning work will take place at tables and in the form of phonics, maths and curriculum linked activities set out in our continuous provision space.

Fruit and drinks – We will provide a piece of fruit or a healthy snack for morning break time. Each child will need to bring in a named water bottle to drink throughout the day. Water bottles will be easily accessible in the class room and the children are given lots of opportunities to have a drink throughout the day.

Lunchboxes – These will be stored on their pegs just outside the classroom. Please remember we are a nut free school.

End of the day routine– The day ends for the children at 2:45pm and we ask that you continue to collect from the classroom door, socially distanced please. Younger siblings will be accompanied and brought out at the same time as your eldest child.

Uniform – Please label your child’s uniform and P.E kit clearly and ensure they have appropriate clothing for our changeable weather. We will be outside rain or shine!

P.E. – Our PE lessons will take place on Wednesday and Friday mornings. On these days, children should attend school in their P.E. kits with appropriate clothing for our forest school sessions. Please could all children be provided with jogging bottoms as P.E. will continue even in colder weather.

Reading – Each child has been given a reading record so that any reading done at home or school can be logged. Even 5 minutes at home each day makes a huge difference. These books are levelled and are mainly for home reading. We have a fantastic library here, as well as many lovely books in our classroom for children to enjoy.

Homework – Each half term, your child will be sent home with an optional topic related homework task. Maths and Spellings will be sent home weekly in a Homework book

Class Dojo – We are all connected on Class Dojo now which is fantastic! This is how we will give you any important information and how you can keep in touch with me if you have any concerns or wish to celebrate something your child has done at home.

Huge thanks for such a brilliant start, I am looking forward to an exciting year! Miss Poulton.
