All About TURTLES
Welcome to Turtles Class 2018-2019
This year Turtles class is taught by Mrs Marsden and supported by Mrs Smith and Ms Robertson. We are known as the ‘Terrific Turtles’ because we always try our best and enjoy everything we do.
We have daily phonics, maths, literacy and handwriting lessons; and teachers plan activities to support individual needs in these areas.
Through the use of specific Topic work Turtles and Dolphins learn and develop skills together. The topics we will be working on this year are:
Autumn A: My World.
Autumn B: All Around the World.
Spring A: Invasion.
Spring B: Animals.
Summer A: A Long Time Ago.
Summer B: People Who Help Us.
Every child will read to an adult at least once a week, and work through their key words. We don’t send out homework in the Foundation stage, but we do encourage all children to read with a grown-up at home every day.
We also offer Home-link packs that develop skills taught in phonics and maths.
Physical Education (PE) takes place on a Thursday morning. For health and safety reasons, please remember to remove ear-rings and tie back long hair. After the October half-term (Autumn B) we will be changing into PE kits: children will not need pumps as we will be doing gymnastics in the hall.
Throughout the year we will be offering drop-in sessions for grown-ups, to share your child’s learning and daily experiences. We believe that a strong relationship between home and school is crucial for children to achieve their full potential. For this reason, we would like to involve you all as much as possible in being part of your child’s daily learning.
Please keep an eye out for future events and activities that you can come along to. In the meantime, if there is anything we can help or support you with please feel free to speak to one of us.
