Welcome to Ravens
Welcome to Ravens’ class, we are found in the classroom at the end of the corridor, opposite the playing field. We are a friendly class: full of people eager to get to know you, make you feel welcome and help you feel at home. Mrs. Mitchell is our teacher, Mrs Fogg and Mrs Farrell are our teaching assistants: we are all members of the Ravens' class team. We work hard to create exciting lessons, so we can discover more about the world, develop our skills and challenge ourselves to achieve. We are very lucky this year to welcome Mr Nolan to our class team. He will be teaching some of our lessons as well as supporting us in our learning.
Reading – Your child will take a STAR Reader test each term which will determine which colour book-band they are on. We ask that they bring their school reading book home each day and that they spend time reading at home. When your child has finished a book, they will be able to take an Accelerated Reader quiz. Try to challenge themselves to complete at least two quizzes each half-term.
Spellings: As part of our on-going teaching of spelling patterns and spelling rules, a wide range of vocabulary and spelling patterns will be addressed and taught in class. This will give us the opportunity to focus on individual gaps and any common misconceptions. Children will focus on a list of words to practise before completing a challenge at the end of the week. The challenge will involve the children using the words they have focused on in sentences.
PE (PE kit)
In September, we will have PE on Mondays and Wednesdays. On Tuesdays, we will be in the outside and on Thursdays, we will be inside. Your child will need to come to school in their PE kit on those days.
Please make sure that long hair is tied up on PE days, and earrings, watches, if worn, are removed. Fitness watches are permitted to be worn; however, they must be covered by a wristband.
Trips and Visits
We are very lucky to be going on some fantastic trips this year, making lasting memories. This term we hope to experience a Planetarium.
Class Assemblies and Performances
Every term (except for summer, due to our production) we will present a class assembly to our parents and carers. These give us the opportunity to share some of our exciting learning with you. We will also have the fantastic opportunity to perform our summer production to parents and carers.
