Welcome to Garnet Class!

Here you will find out about all of the exciting things we have been learning each term, including photographs and our brilliant learning.  There might be times when you have a question or query. Please use Google Classroom or your child’s planner to communicate in the first instance. If the matter is urgent, please contact the school office to arrange a suitable time for a phone conversation or face to face meeting.  

Each day, we ask that the children bring to school their book bag containing their school planner and the reading books that have been provided. We ask that you read five times each week with your child and ‘FIVERS’ will be checked off every Monday for the previous week. The phased books can be read more than once at home throughout the week in order for the children to achieve their ‘FIVERS’. The sharing book is a book for you to enjoy reading to your child, perhaps as a bedtime story.

During Term 1, Garnet class will have PE on Mondays and Thursdays and we therefore ask that children wear their PE kit to school on this day. PE kit does include tracksuit bottoms and trainers and the children can also wear their school jumper and a coat on these days.

Term One

Garnet Class have had a wonderful start to the year and they’re becoming familiar with the school routines.  During our first week back, the whole school read ‘Here We Are’ and we enjoyed learning all about our wonderful Earth with lots of Geography, Science and PSHE learning.  We have also developed our understanding of healthy eating and we practiced our designing, cutting and evaluating skills when making delicious fruit kebabs.  We have now launched our Superheros topic and we’ve enjoyed lots of learning themed around the book ‘Supertato’.

In Garnet class, we have also been working hard to ‘Make a rainbow’.  When we complete a learning challenge during continuous provision, we earn a coloured lolly stick. At the end of the week we celebrate all of the beautiful rainbows that we’ve created and take great pride in all of our achievements.
