Amethyst Class

Welcome to Amethyst Class….

come inside and have a look around!


Our teacher is Mrs Martin and Mrs Wilson

is our teaching assistant.


Due to the school closures, we will be posting activities, links and work for your child to complete at home.
In order to not overload you, we will be posting a few things each week.

Weekly updates will be on a Friday.


100 Outdoors

Year 1 Week 1


Spring Term 2020


Our Geography topic will focus on Stotfold.
We have been on an interesting walk around the town and 

looked at key landmarks such as the shops, the church and the park.  We also noticed all the road signs.  We will be thinking about the features of the town and ideas for improvement over the next few weeks.


After half term we will be starting our History topic on the Great Fire of London.  The children will learn all about how the fire started, why it spread so quickly and how London was rebuilt following the Great Fire. We will also be re-creating our own Great Fire.



In Science, our topic is Animals. We will be learning about different animal groups, where they live and what they like to eat.

As you know, every Thursday the children will be bringing home spellings to learn, please encourage the children to complete the practice sheet and return to school the following Thursday as it really has a positive impact on the children remembering and retaining their spellings. In addition, please help your child to read and spell the word of the week.  Perhaps look for this word in the books that you read together, spell it out using playdough, draw it in some sand or a tray of rice?


We are always glad of any help in Year 1, so if you can spare an hour,
especially to hear children read, even on an occasional basis please let us know. 

Please come and see us if you have any questions.

Autumn Term 2019

Welcome back to the new academic year and to Amethyst Class.

We have a busy term ahead and lots to look forward to! 

We will be celebrating harvest festival at our special harvest collective worship and are looking forward to our class assembly in November,

 Before you know it we will be into Christmas – concerts, carols and crackers!!!


There are a lot of new routines that your child will be getting used to over 
the next few weeks.  Please help them by ensuring that they have the correct equipment on the right day and ensure all items of uniform are labelled.

It is really important that you read with your child every day and that this is recorded in their purple reading record books – this helps to track their progress effectively.


Each Thursday the children will be bringing home spellings to learn, 
please encourage the children to complete the practice sheet and return it to school the following Thursday.

In addition, each week the children have a word of the week to learn to read and spell.  Please help your child with this ie, practising writing the word, spotting the word in their reading book and in other books you may read together.

 

Our history topic this term will be Nurturing Nurses. We will be learning all about the life and work of three famous nurses –

Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell. 

As part of our learning a real nurse came in to talk to the children about her job and how she looks after her patients. 

 In science we will be learning about different scientists and inventors and also conducting some of our own experiments.  We may need your help to collect resources for these experiments so please keep an eye on the noticeboard outside our classroom for messages about this.

We are always glad of any help in Amethyst class, so if you can spare an hour,

 especially to hear children read, even on an occasional basis please let us know.

 

Please come and see us if you have any questions.

We hope to see you at our Class assembly on Friday 1st November. 


Thank you for your support

Mrs Martin and Mrs Wilson
