Damson Class

Welcome to Damson Class!

 

Our names are Mrs Morris and Mrs Leneghan and we teach in Damson class.  Mrs Morris teaches all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on Wednesday mornings.  Mrs Leneghan teaches Wednesday afternoons and all day on Thursdays and Fridays.  Miss Doke is our LSA and supports our class every morning and our volunteer, Granny, helps out on Thursday afternoons.

 

Our topic for the Spring term involves focusing on these Power of reading books-'The Robot and the Bluebird' by David Lucas and ‘The Puffin Book of Fantastic First Poems’ edited by June Crebbin. We are very excited about our topic and plan to spend lots of time in the grounds exploring the woodland areas and linking this to our story and poem. 

 

During the term we will be enjoying reading and writing stories and information texts and listening to poetry; in Science we will be learning about Animals and Materials. Our maths learning will start with ordering and sequencing numbers, addition and subtraction and place value. Remember to keep practising your number bonds and times tables as we work our way through the Mighty Multiple awards scheme.

 

Learning will take place outside as often as possible and children need to be dressed for the weather. Warm shower proof coats for the cold and hats for sunny days please.  Can every child also please bring a water bottle into school each day.

 

It is important for children to read and talk about books every day. As they become more confident at decoding words encourage them to look out for punctuation and begin to read with expression.

 

PE takes place on Mondays (indoors) and Thursdays (outdoors) so please ensure your child has their PE kit in school, including track suit bottoms for the cold weather.

 

Can we please also ask that all clothing and water bottles/lunchboxes are named to ensure things don’t get lost (and to save time reuniting items with their owners)!
