Belton (Yr 1)
Belton Class continues to be led by Mrs Jagger (Mon-Weds) and Mrs Ross (Weds-Friday). We are supported by Mrs See (TA) and Mrs Want (HLTA).
‘Castles’ is the theme for Belton this first half of Spring term. We will be exploring and investigating castle-life, different types of castles, attack and defences. We will be finding out about William the Conqueror and how he impacted castle lives. In Science we will be considering different types of materials; how their attributes are used to suit our needs and carrying out investigations. The new castle role play area will develop our communication and language skills and our Rainbow challenges will continue to challenge our independent learning.
Alongside our theme we will explore how to become reflective learners by asking ourselves what we have learnt each week and how we hope to improve.
Belton class PE continues to be on a Monday and Tuesday. However, we do ask that your child's PE kit is in school every day, including trainers and outdoor kit as well as a change of socks. Thank you. Please be reminded that if your child has their ears pierced, they must be able to remove and replace their own piercings.
Please can you check that your child’s uniform and P.E kit continues to be clearly named.
Our RE theme this term is ‘Books and Stories in Christianity'.
For a full overview of all areas of the curriculum we will cover in Term 3 please see the theme web attached below (click on the PDF below the theme web image).
We continue to ask that you hear your child read FOUR times a week and don’t forget to sign the reading diary so house points can be given. Each house point is a step closer to a ‘dip in the jar’ and all reading experiences are so important to help children be well prepared for their phonics screening assessment in June.
Please do come and see us if you have a concern about your child and we will do the same. There will be opportunities to look at their learning and progress along the way. We look forward to the opportunities to meet with you over the next year.
