Class JW,


Welcome to Class JW.  We are a Year 1/EYFS2 class and our teacher is Mrs Whitham.  We are lucky to have Mrs Shaw, Mrs Joburns and Miss Robinson working with us too.

In Class JW we love to move around and our favourite lesson is PE.  Our PE lessons are on Monday where we love to use the apparatus to improve our balance and gymnastic skills.  We love singing and making music every Wednesday morning with Mrs Maitland.  We are developing our fantastic singing voices and learning about pulse, rhythm and pitch.  We have daily lessons in phonics, literacy and numeracy as well as topic work and art every week.

We want our class to be a calm and happy place to work and we have made a set of golden rules to make sure we can all learn our best.  Our number one rule is to listen to others and wait for our turn to speak in class.  We are all trying hard to do this.  When we follow our class rules, are kind to our friends and try hard to do our work , we can earn Dojo points or even be ‘Star of the Week’.  We can also get certificates and stickers for learning all our spellings and counting facts.

This term we have some exciting new topics to learn about.  In Science, we are learning about animals and changing materials.  In RE, we are learning about the Jewish special book – the Torah.  Our topic this half term is Journeys and we are learning about some famous explorers.
