I am Mrs. Canham the Blue Class teacher. I work alongside Mrs. Carlin and Mrs. Hoe who are Learning Support Assistants.
This term our learning is based around the question ‘What is it like to live on an island? We will be finding out about Katie Morag and her life on the fictional island of Struay. Katie starts us thinking about her toys. We are going to learn about toys, what they are made of and toys of the past.
The reading challenge will continue and you can collect certificates as you go along. Just read books at home and sign your home school book.
Please bring your book bag everyday as we have lots of reading helpers who would love to read with you. You also need it to take home letters and things that you’ve made at school. For more information on our topic please see the topic web for this term which goes into more detail regarding some of the learning planned for this term.
We have PE twice a week but please make sure you have your PE kit with you everyday as we have lots of extra activities planned. Please make sure that you are not wearing jewellery that can catch on the apparatus.
Forest School is every fortnight and you can have much more fun if you have a change of clothes. You will need warm and waterproof clothes as well as sturdy shoes or trainers.
I will be in the playground with Mrs. Carlin and Mrs. Hoe at the end of each day. If there is anything you need to know please come and ask us.
There will also be a chance to chat to Mrs. Taylor (purple class) and I at the Meet the Teacher session early in the term.
We all look forward to working with you and your families.
Mrs. Canham, Mrs. Carlin and Mrs. Hoe
