Mrs Reeve – Ducks Class Teacher

Mrs Reeve would like to welcome you to the Ducks Class.

You can email Mrs Reeve on mreeve@pulham.norfolk.sch.uk

 

I am pleased to welcome the children back for what looks like a busy Summer Term. We will be very busy growing all sorts of edible plants in our outside area, looking at identifying the different plants and trees and their basic structure. We shall also be growing flowers in one of the beds in the allotment area.

We shall be reading Jack and the Beanstalk in Literacy and also looking at some of the exciting variations. “Jack and the Jellybean Stalk” and “Trust me Jack’s Beanstalk Stinks!” to name just a few. We will be using these to help us to retell the story and write our own variation as a class.

We shall continue to do our Read Write Inc Sessions, where the children read a variety of books with an adult and learn the various sounds. In June, the children will complete a Year 1 phonics test, which is set by the government. A useful fun website to help children with their phonics at home, is phonicsplay.co.uk, (click on free phonicsplay) this will help to reinforce the work that we do in our sessions.

Reading 

I cannot over emphasise the importance of reading at home with an adult or even an older sibling, just 5-10 minutes a night can make a big difference to their progress. Please write in their Home School Book when you have heard them read, we endeavour to change the books on a daily basis. The children will continue to read in school to an adult on an individual basis, in their groups in Read Write Inc sessions and also in peer group sessions with older children from different classes.

Maths 

We shall be looking at multiplication and division this half term, moving on to position, direction and time. We continue to use our money belts on a daily basis to buy activities which helps the children to become familiar with the different coins and the change required.

Physical Education 

The children will continue to take part in Forest School sessions with Mrs Shreeve on a Wednesday morning, as before please could children come to school in their Forest School clothes. We shall also continue with P.E sessions on a Thursday, where we will be covering dance, cricket and team games. Please ensure your child has a named P.E kit including outdoor trainers, in school at all times.

If you have anything you would like to discuss or any concerns, please email me at Sgrant@pulham.norfolk.sch.uk

Yours sincerely

Mrs S Grant
