Yellow Class 2020-2021

                 Welcome to Yellow Class
 
Our teacher is Mrs. Hamilton and our teaching assistant is Mrs. Lee.
We have settled well and are ready to begin our Year 1 journey.
         This term our topic is Magical Lands.
We were so excited to hear about the fairies living in our woods and couldn't wait to go and find them. We looked for signs of where they lived and collected woodland treasure to make journey sticks about our adventure.

We will keep you up to date with our learning on this page with lots of photos of the hard work we are doing and fun we are having.  We will also include on this page information about our curriculum and links to fun and interesting websites that may help continue learning at home.

Reading at home as well as school really helps you to become a better reader.  If you read at home 3 or more times a week you will be recognised on our Reading Champs trophies and receive dojo points.  We have lots of new books to choose from in our library.

We will have a spelling challenge each week.  Spellings will be on ClassDojo each Monday and we will do a spelling challenge the following Monday.  

Each day we have a handwriting lesson where we practise forming letters of the correct size and shape.  As our handwriting improves we will receive handwriting awards.

This term our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday so please make sure you come in leggings or jogging bottoms and that earrings are taken out or you have medical tape that you are able to cover them with.
