Welcome to Mexico class webpage 2016-17
In Mexico class we love to learn through play. We want every day to be a positive one and as we sing every morning ‘each day different and every day new.’
In the autumn term we will be covering the following topics:
‘Why do you love me so much?’
In this topic we look at love, families, friends, home and ourselves. You can help your child by discussing these themes and perhaps looking at photos of family and your child as a baby.
In phonics we are looking at sounds we hear in the environment.
Every other Friday we visit Clapton Library to look at books and have stories read by the librarians there. We need at least two extra adults to come with us to make this visit possible. If you are available between 2 and 3pm on a Friday afternoon and would like to accompany us, please let us know. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Our first forest school session will be 5th October and then every Wednesday morning from then on. The school will provide waterproof jackets and trousers but could you please bring a pair of wellies for your child and leave them in the assigned box in the cloakroom. On forest school days your child should come to school in their PE kit.
I greatly look forward to taking the Nursery children on trips throughout the year. We have one tripped booked so far. We are visiting the Unicorn Theatre to see Jeramee, Hartleby and Oooglemore on Thursday 30th March at 11.00am. We will need 3 parents to come with us on this trip so if you would like to come, please let me know.
I will let you know about other dates as they are booked.
ALL children will be provided with a FREE school packed lunch on trips. They will not be allowed to take a lunch from home.
Our class assembly is Friday 7th July at 9.30-10.00am. We would love for you to come and watch if you can. Please support your child with learning lines and songs.
Our next coffee morning is Monday 28th November at 9.00am.
Our cake sale to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital will be Friday 9th June. If you are good at baking or just fancy having a go, please support us with some donations.
Homework is set on a Friday and must be handed in by the following Tuesday.
Reading books will be changed and sent home on a Friday. Please remember to sign and write a comment in your child’s reading log.
PE kits MUST be worn to school on Tuesdays (PE) and Wednesdays (Forest School). Please leave a spare set of clothing at school in case your child gets messy. They will always wear aprons during art activities and water play but sometimes they still manage to get themselves in a mess!
Please support your child as much as you can with remembering to wear the correct uniform and bring what they need to school. Homework is a very important part of your child’s learning and the more support you can give them the quicker they can progress. I hugely appreciate all the support you give and if you ever wish to contact me for any reason, I am more than happy to help in any way. Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org with any concerns or questions.
I look forward to seeing you at your parent morning’s over the forth coming weeks. Don’t forget, if you would like to stay and see your child learning in the classroom after your meeting, you are more than welcome
