Hello and a warm welcome to Frogs class from Miss Jefferies!
Frogs class is the Year One class at Haydon Wick, which will be taught by Miss Jefferies. The children will also be supported by the class teaching assistant, Miss Remnant.
Topics we will be covering this year:
Term 1 – I am special
Term 2 – Winter Wonderland
Term 3 – Castle on a Cloud
Term 4 – The Secret Life of Animals
Term 5 – Island Life
Term 6 – Living and Growing
The children are welcome to come into the classroom as soon as the door is opened by a member of staff. As the cloakroom is limited on space, we politely ask that you encourage your child to come into the classroom independently by leaving them at the planters just outside the cloakroom door.
Home time Routine
We will stand with the children at the classroom door and send them to you when we see you. The playground can be busy at the end of the day so please give us a wave so we can send your child to you promptly. If your child is going home with someone other than yourself, please let Miss Jefferies know at morning drop off, or alternatively leave a message with the office and they will pass it on.
Please read with your child daily. We also ask that you support them with their phonics sounds, key words and spellings.
What will you need in Frogs class?
Please make sure ALL items of clothing are clearly labelled, including PE kit. PE kit should be in school at all times and should include coloured t-shirt, shorts and daps (also trainers/jogging bottoms for cold and wet weather).
For wet weather activities and welly walks, we ask that your child brings in a pair of wellies that are labelled and pegged together. These will be kept in the cloakroom.
We have a morning snack of fruit, milk or water. Throughout the year we will also offer children enrichment activities. In order to do this, and to cover the cost of cooking activities, we ask for a contribution of £12 to cover the whole year or £2 every term. Please give the money, in a named envelope, to a member of staff in the classroom. Once children turn 5 years old they are no longer entitled to free milk, so we purchase milk on a weekly basis. Please ask at the school office if you would like your child to receive milk with their snack.
Please ensure your child brings in a named water bottle every day to school. We politely ask that it is only filled with water (unless there is a medical reason) due to spillages.
Key Dates and Information
Please keep an eye on the Class Dojo page and letters coming home in your child’s book bag for important messages and key dates.
Please feel free to pop in and see us – we are always available to talk if you have any queries. If there’s anything that could affect your child’s day and you feel we need to be aware of then please let us know in the morning, and if you wish this can then be discussed in more detail after school.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
Miss Jefferies and Miss Remnant
