Our New Class Welcome Display

 

 

Important Updates:

Isolation:

If there is an occasion where you have to access work remotely from home, in the case of individual self-isolation or bubble closure, you can find information below regarding what will happen in both situations.

 

INDIVIDUAL ISOLATION:

If this happens, I will email you a letter containing information about what to do whilst at home. There will be work set for you to complete at home, if you are well enough. The work can be accessed via the files section on MS Teams via the link above. (The same platform we used during lockdown).

You need to email your work to me/bring it in on your return.

There will be work only, no live lessons. 

 

BUBBLE CLOSURE:

If we needed to close our bubble, you will again receive a letter from school with information about what to do whilst at home. We will go back to the system we used during lockdown, meeting twice daily online for live lessons (9:15am & 1:30pm) and setting work online, all via MS Teams. 

 

If you have any questions/need to send me work, please email me using the address: class3@stgeorges.derby.sch.uk

 

 

If you need to contact me, please email me using the address: class3@stgeorges.derby.sch.uk

 

I will do my best to respond within 48 hours, during working hours of 8am-5pm Monday to Friday.

Welcome to Class 3's Website Page 

 

Yay - we are back together once more! We've missed you terribly but are so incredibly proud of the way you all tackled your home learning and attendance at live lessons was AMAZING! 

You've seen extra information above in case we need to revisit the distance learning situation but everything else for class 3 is below smiley

 

We will also keep this page updated with lots of other things to help you learn. 

We will upload your knowledge organisers for each subject to help you learn more at home and we will upload lots of pictures of our work so that you can show your parents! 

 

Our PE days are Monday and Friday so make sure you aren't wearing anything too tricky to change and that you've not got any earrings in on those days. 

 

We will be sending homework out on a Monday and we will collect it in on a Friday.  

 

Reading books will match your new RWI group so they will get changed either daily or every 3 or 5 days.

We will still collect your reading diary in every Monday though so that we can keep track of how much you're reading at home - remember, it should be at least 5 times a week!

You can move through our reading stars and hopefully get a prize when you reach the top, not to mention weekly housepoints. 

 

More information about our class and Year 1 in general can be found on our below but first...Let's have a look at what we have been up to so far this year...

Our ‘Golden Rules’

At St. George’s we expect all children to be well behaved and ready to learn. Remember that each new term is a fresh start. Here is a reminder of our school rules so that you know what we expect from you.

  • Treat other people how you would like to be treated.

  • Keep your hands, feet and objects to yourself.

  • Always do as you are told straight away.

  • Play your part in keeping our school clean and tidy.

  • If you have nothing nice to say – say nothing at all.

  • Respect other people and their property.

  • Walk around school quietly, on the left and in single file.

 

 

Talk for Writing and Read Write Inc.

 

To teach the children reading and writing we will be following the Read Write Inc scheme. These are daily lessons that teach the children phonics, writing, reading and basic comprehension skills. The children will have a book they will focus on and all their learning will be based on the book they are reading. Your child may not be taught by their class teacher during these sessions. 

This is a photo of our Read Write Inc sound poster. This helps us when we read and write. 

 

 

We also teach separate Talk for Writing lessons. Talk for Writing is a writing scheme written and designed by Pie Corbett. The children are taught a specific text over 3 - 4 weeks. During this time the children learn a text and then adapt and change this text to create their own. The children really enjoy learning new texts and creating actions to help them remember. Ask your child at home to perform their text map to you. 

 

 

 

This half term we are learning and adapting 'The Three Little Pigs'.

 

Maths

Throughout school we follow the Big Maths programme. We do daily CLIC (Counting, Learn It's, It's Nothing New and Calculation) sessions where the children learn basic number skills. Within these lessons we are trying to develop counting skills, fluency and mastery within Maths. Mastery is focusing on deepening the children's knowledge and challenging them to apply their previously gained knowledge to new situations and problems. 

 

 

RE

In RE we follow the Come and See programme which has been recommended by the Bishop and written by various Catholic educators throughout our Diocese and across the country. This term's topics include: Special People. Throughout the year the children also have the opportunity to study different faiths and understand how different people live out their religion. 

 

Throughout their RE lessons the children are encouraged to ask questions and explore their understanding of the teachings within the Bible. The children hear different Bible stories and are provided with the time to 'wonder' and 'reflect' on the meanings of these stories and how God's word is relevant to us today. Ask your child about their learning in RE and ask them to think about any questions they may have relating to their current RE topic. 

 

 

 

 

 

Within class we have a Collective Worship table. Once a week the children take ownership of their own worship and work together as a team to lead the collective worship for the rest of their class. 

 

 

It's super important to make sure are feeling happy, safe and healthy! Here's a couple of packs to help you support your emotional well-being!
