Garnet

Name of Teacher(s): Miss Davies

Name of Support Staff: Mrs S Ireland

If you wish to speak to Miss Davies, the drop-in day for Garnet class will be straight after school on Wednesdays. If this is not possible for you, please ring the school office to arrange an appointment for a more convenient day.

Garnet class have PE on Mondays and Wednesdays, though it would be advisable to make sure that children have their PE kits in school every day, as we sometimes have outside providers running additional sports sessions.

Phonics homework will always be set on a Friday and children need to return their Home Phonics book to their class teacher the following Thursday. We do not expect the children to complete this homework independently and would be very grateful if you could spend some time working with your child on the tasks and activities set each week. There will also be some spellings that we would like the children to learn from memory, so we would be grateful if you could practise these with your child. We also ask that you read five times each week with your child and FIVERS will be checked off every Friday. Details of topic homework can also be found in the ‘Curriculum Letters’ section of this website.

The Story of Toys

As part of our topic ‘The Story of Toys’ we went on a great trip to Kingswood Heritage Museum. We have been learning about the history of toys and this was a brilliant opportunity to find out more. We were able to explore toys from the past and we also got to interview some elderly volunteers from the museum to find out about the toys they played with during the war.

Take a look at our work, displays and sometimes us. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
