Welcome to Lion Class!
I hope that you all had an enjoyable summer break and are excited to come back to school in year 1!! We have been busy making sure our classroom is all ready for you and I can’t wait to get to know you all, learn lots as well as have fun too!
Mrs Tyler and I are looking forward to seeing you all grow and develop those multicoloured brains as we keep going, do our best and learn lots.
Our topic this half term is ‘Toybox’. We will be reading Kipper’s Toybox, describing and writing about the characters. We will also be thinking about what your favourite toys are and why. We will also get a chance to think about how toys have changed over time and to look at toys from a long time ago. You may like to talk to grown ups in your family about what toys were like when they were 5!
In Lion class we love to read and so grown ups it would be really fantastic if you can read as much with your child as possible - their school reading books but also just as you are going about daily life. Read the menu together at McDonalds, read food labels at the supermarket, whenever you can, read! We will be rewarding children in school for the reading they do at home.
Please feel free to come and speak to me if you have any questions about this coming year or concerns and joys you ever want to share. Both Mrs Tyler and I will do our best in supporting your child in this next part of their journey here at Maidstone.
