Yellow Class 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Yellow Class!
"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn!"
Miss Clark along with the support of Mrs Dand, Ms. Hopkinson and Mr. Chandley are so excited to be supporting Year 2/3 this year and will be creating a variety of opportunities for the children to become active learners.
This will be our yellow class page and will be used alongside the other areas of our school website to share information with parents, children and carers. Our class page will be used to showcase our amazing work and achievements throughout the year as well as upload letters, calendar dates and important announcements.
Reading: Practice makes perfect in almost everything we do as humans and reading is no different. The benefits of reading start with the first book a baby hears and continues into childhood and throughout a child's life. Reading strengthens brain connections and improves concentration which supports the ability to read for longer periods. Through reading, children learn about people, places and events outside their own experience. They are exposed to ways of life, ideas and beliefs about the world which may be different from those which surround them.
Reading improves a child’s vocabulary and leads to more highly-developed language skills. This is because children learn new words as they read but also because they unconsciously absorb information as they read about things like how to structure sentences and how to use words and language effectively.
It would be fantastic if parents and carers could read with their children every night at home and sign the yellow reading diary to let Miss Clark know the progress that the children are making outside of school. Miss Clark will also be choosing READER OF THE WEEK! who will receive a certificate and prize for their hard work.
P.E: Yellow class will have their PE lessons every Wednesday with Mr.Chandley. All children should come into school wearing their PE kit. This will need to be; black jogging bottoms or purple shorts, a plain white t-shirt or polo shirt, a school cardigan or jumper and black trainers.
Snack: The cost of snack is as follows:
Toast £1.25 per week
Milk £1.25 per week
The money will need to be sent to school in advance in a clearly labelled envelope. School will provide envelopes if needed. Where possible by the Friday before or on the Monday at the latest. This is to allow the money to be accounted for and for the orders to be placed in the kitchen. If the money is sent to school after the Monday morning then please note the snack will not be ordered until the following week.
Please label all envelopes clearly to inform teaching staff of what the money is for e.g. toast and milk, just toast or just milk.
If you would prefer to pay for the half term then the cost would be either £7.50 for just milk or toast or £15.00 for both milk and toast.
Uniform: Please ensure your child wears the correct uniform and uniform is clearly labelled.
Coats: Can all children please bring a coat or jacket into school every days as the weather is very unpredictable.
Water Bottles: Can all children please bring a clearly labelled water bottle in to school every day.
I would like to thank all parents and carers for their ongoing support and would like to praise the children on their fantastic start to the year. The children have shown such resilience coming back to school and we at Bridgewater Park are so proud of each and every student! I look forward to meeting you all and hope that we can work together in supporting such wonderful children of the future!
