Base 2 - The Starfish
My name is Miss Bowler and I teach in Base 2, along with my T.A’s, Mrs Thomson and Mrs Whitehouse.
Our P.E. day is on a Thursday afternoon. Please make sure you send your children with a labelled P.E. kit to avoid loss of property. P.E. kits can be brought to school on a Monday morning and sent home after school on a Friday.
Homework is given to the children each week and should be returned no later than the following Thursday.
Each child has a reading diary to be used by home and school. Please record any reading your child does in this diary. We have a ‘Reading at Home’ reward scheme in place that rewards children who read at least four times a week.
If you have any queries please feel free to come and speak to us or write a message in your child’s communication diary and give it to us in the morning.
Value of the Month
The value we will be exploring this month is Happiness. We will talk about what makes us happy and how it is different for different people.
In literacy, we are going to be learning to write some words. We will use our phonics knowledge to help segment words and begin to write down the sounds that we hear.
In reading, we are going to begin to segment some simple words and blend them back together.
In maths, we are learning to count and match the objects to the correct numerals.
Our theme for Spring Term is called ‘Dinosaur Planet’. This topic is all about dinosaurs! We will use books to find out information about dinosaurs and label them. We will also read fictional books about dinosaurs to encourage our imagination.
