Year 1/2 Foxes 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Year 1/2 Foxes
A warm welcome to Foxes class. In Years 1 and 2 we are firm believers in nurturing the whole child.This means that we offer rich educational experiences through a creative curriculum. There will be times that your child is unaware that they are learning! This is because we provide fun, stimulating and real-life experiences. We use song, dance, crafts, practical resources and stories to embed key skills and knowledge. We believe that everyone is good at something. We cannot wait to discover the individual talents that the children in our classes have!
My name is Mrs Sutton and I have been teaching for 14 years. Before joining Abingdon I taught in Shanghai, China for three years. Here is a little more about me.
In Foxes we have Miss Murphy and Mrs Hanif
The children will have PE twice a week, once with the class teacher and once with the coaches. The children will have PE on Wednesdays and Fridays. The children should come to school wearing their PE kit and they will stay in their kit all day. PE kit must be a white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps/trainers.
Please can any parents/carers make sure they are wearing a mask to drop off and pick up their child. The class teacher will also be wearing a mask at the classroom door
Children receive maths and literacy homework fortnightly which will be base around key maths skills such as number bonds, times tables and addition and subtraction.
Reading books are changed on Mondays and Thursdays and these are linked with the Read, Write Inc groups children are placed in for phonics lessons.
Year 1 and 2 Spellings
Below is a list of spellings children in Year 1 and Year 2 should know how to read and write by the end of the year. Please practise these where possible. All will be sent throughout the year as weekly spelling practise and repeated to store them to memory.
In Foxes we have 'Secret Student' where a child is picked each day and the name hidden in the special folder. If at the end of the day that child has been following the school and class rules they get to pick a treat from the class treat box. The name is then revealed to the class. If not the name is taken away but not revealed to anyone. Also the children can earn plastic money for showing the core values. They collect this as a table and then they can choose to save this or spend it. They have a lost of rewards to choose from.
Also we have our 'Super Star' punch cards where children receive star shaped punch wholes for showing our core values or other positive attributes. This is done daily and once the card is full they get to pick from the treat box.
At Abingdon we use Class Dojo which is embedded within every year group. We use Class Dojo to engage parents by sharing photos and videos of exciting moments in the classroom. It is also an effective way for parents and teachers to communicate. I will replay to messages within school working hours.
