Mrs Lindblad's Class 2023 - 2024
Welcome to our Class Page
Hello Everyone and welcome to the Autumn Term of Year 1!
My name is Mrs. Lindblad and I can't wait to work with you this year. I have got lots of exciting things planned and I am looking forward to getting to know you better and finding out about the things you can do and enjoy both inside and outside of school.
On this webpage you will find important information about the school day and week. Please have a read through and make sure you check it regularly for any changes. I will also be using Seesaw as Mrs. Millichap did last year so I will send important information that way too. You can also contact me via Seesaw if you need to.
Further down this page you will find a weekly learning journey to let you know what we will be covering each week and I hope this will enable you to support your child where possible and talk to them about what they have been learning in class.
Our School Day
Doors will open at the Annexe at 8.45am so that our day can start at 8.50am and school finishes at 3.10pm.
Our learning this term
We have lots of exciting things planned this year and I hope that your child will come home each day feeling excited about their day. The yearly curriculum planner can be found in the files section of the web page below.
We will being focussing in particular on learning about what a sentence is and how to write one. We will be making sure that we know all the capital letters and how to write them.
Our story topic is 'The Jolly Postman' and our writing will then be based around this book.
In maths this half term we will be working on numbers to 10.
Autumn Term Dates for your diary
This year we are going to be having two P.E. lessons a week. This term they will take place on a Tuesday with Miss Hook and a Thursday afternoon with myself. We would like the children to come dressed for P.E. on these 2 days so that we won't have to worry about getting changed. Please be aware that most lessons will take place outside so we would appreciate it if the children could be wearing a school track suit over their shorts and T shirt so that we are prepared for all weather. Children will also need a water bottle for P.E. lessons as they always get very thirsty.
We will provide daily fruit or vegetables to every child in year 1. We appreciate your support with our fruit only snack policy in the Annexe.
Please make sure that your child comes to school each day with a named water bottle that contains water only. We encourage children to drink water regularly.
- Read every night
- Spellings on spelling shed (5-10 minutes daily)
- Maths Worksheet (at least one a week)
- English/ handwriting sheet
Please read with your child daily as this will have an impact on all areas of their learning. Please also write a short comment when you have listened to you child read as we now expect every child to read at least 4 times a week minimum. Reading diaries are checked daily in Year 1.
Your child has spellings to practise on 'Spelling Shed' every week. Please try to practise for 5-10 minutes each evening.
