Vixen Tor FS, Y1&Y2
Welcome to Vixen Tor Class
We are a busy and creative class of Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2 children.
Welcome back to a new school year in Vixen Tor.
We have lots of fabulous learning planned for this term around the Topic of Marvellous Me. See below for the topic web.
Spelling and Phonics
Year 2 – We have begun our new Spelling lessons. Each week, the children will be taught new spelling patterns and be given a list of words to learn on Mondays. They children will have an informal check of the spellings on Friday. Please check their bags as they come home and help them practise their new spellings.
Year 1 – We are starting work on our Phase 5 phonemes. Each week the children will be given three new sounds to learn and these will be put in their book bags, with their reading books. Please can you practise these at home.
Foundation – We will soon be starting our Phase 2 Phonics lessons. As Year 1, we will cover 3 new sounds per week and these will be put into their book bag with the reading book. Please can you practise these new sounds at home.
We will give your child a new reading book on Fridays. Please can you read with your child at home and write any comments in the reading record book. The children have all worked really well in reading and your continued support in practising at home is vital to this. In keeping the book for the week, your child is able to read for fluency and understanding. As you read, ask your child what they think might happen next or what has happened so far – this shows they understand what they have read.
Our PE day is Wednesday. Please can you ensure they are wearing their kit to school on the day of the lesson as we did last year.
Autumn Term 2021 Marvellous Me Topic Web
Hello and welcome to our New Starters 2021
On this page we will try and upload lots of useful resources to help you and your child prepare for starting school. If you have any questions please give us a call or email the class email address.
We are really looking forward to meeting you all properly as soon as we can.
Please see below for some useful documents about getting ready for starting school
Please be aware that the starting school booklet is written with a ‘normal’ school day in mind. As you can appreciate, with the restrictions that have been in place, there are things that we have had to adapt and change. Once we know what September is going to look like, we will of course give you more details. We still wanted to give you this booklet however, so you have a flavour of things to come.
Happy New Year! I hope all Team Vixen Tor have had a fantastic Christmas!
Each day we shall add a home learning power point. Click below to get started.
Welcome to a brand new year in Vixen Tor. We are very excited to be back in class and eager to learn.
This term’s topic is Superheroes and you can find the topic web below.
See what we have been up to…
We picked blackberries from our grounds to bake into Blackberry crumble. We shared the results with our families.
We like to learn inside and outside.
Home Learning 2020.
On this page, we hope to give you lots of activities and learning to do at home.
As we move forward into our new term of Home Learning, we are going to be providing you with some daily activities. This will follow a similar structure to that of a school day. It is not intended to be followed rigidly as we appreciate that there are lots of other things going on at home. The daily packs will remain on the website so you can access them when you need to.
KS 1 – The pack includes a rainbow tracker that will carry over the week as it would in class. This provides extra little activities linked to the week’s learning and can be dipped into as and when you wish.
Please note: If your child is in the KS1 phonics group, they complete that activity and the Y2 spelling group will complete their activity. It is not intended for all to do both activities.
EYFS – Little and often remains the key. During the day the children are used to lots of free ‘play’ time – we call it ‘choosing for learning’. Small world play, construction, singing, dancing, play dough, cooking, playing board games, chatting, drawing, making activities and being physically active are all valuable learning opportunities. Don’t underestimate the everyday activities that you do with your children.
We would love to see their efforts so please take a photo and email it to our class icloud account.
