Welcome to the Year 1B's Class page.
Firstly, let me introduce myself. My name is Mrs Barraclough and I am the Year 1B Class teacher. I am so excited to be back in school and I am looking forward to working with your child this year.
We also have 2 other adults who work in our classroom. They are called Miss Tearne and Miss Fulton.
Please can I ask that all parents please sign up to Class Dojo. This is a brilliant tool for me to send out messages and a way in which you can ask me questions if you need to. I also put photograph's on Class Dojo of some of the activities that we do in class and it lets you have a snapshot of your child's day in school. I will send out the log-in details in the next few days.
Our P.E. day is Wednesday. Please could you ensure that your child has a full P.E. kit in school including pumps.
Please could you also ensure that your child has a named water bottle in school at all times. This must only contain water and not juice please.
Homework will be a little bit different this year. I will be setting an activity each week and I will put it on our Class page and on Class Dojo.
I will send instructions about what I want the children to do and how to send it back to me. There will be no homework books/sheets for the moment.
This week we have been focusing on counting and writing numbers. For homework this week please can your child practise counting objects to at least 20. The children can count anything they want at home, counters, pasta, buttons, small toys etc. Can your child also practise writing numbers. We have been really trying to write numbers on the line and the correct way round. Maybe the children can count the objects and then write down the number.
Thank you Mrs Barraclough
Your child will bring a reading book home in their blue book bag tonight. Please can you read for 10 minutes each night with them and then sign their record book to say that they have read.
Reading with your child is the most important thing you can do to help your child's learning and it really does make all the difference with all of their learning if they can read confidently.
If you have any concerns or questions, please don't be worried about asking. You can send me a message on Class Dojo and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
