Orange Class

Welcome to Orange Class!

 

Orange Class Teaching Team

Welcome to our class page. My name is Miss Brady and I am the class teacher in Orange Class.

I work alongside Mrs Thomas and Mr Hutchinson who are our teaching assistants.

 

We have a fun-filled year ahead of us with many new topics to explore such as The Victorians, Ancient Egypt and many more! I particularly enjoy teaching English, involving drama in our lessons and exploring different books and ideas that we can share together as a class.

 

There are also many exciting opportunities to look forward to in Orange Class, such as Maypole dancing on the village green on Mayday and our residential trip to Kingswood.

We are enjoying working together as a team and helping Orange Class fulfil their full potential.

PE Kits

Please make sure that your child has their full PE kit in school at ALL times. At the very least they should have T-shirt, shorts and plimsolls in school. Children should have swimming kits every Tuesday.

Remember to name your child’s property

Also, just a reminder that lost items are far more likely to return to their owners if they are clearly named! That includes any pens, pencil cases, lunch boxes etc as well as clothes.

Spellings

Each Friday, your child will be given 7 statutory words (that may include a maths term) and 7 words from a spelling pattern. I will then add on 2 extra words based on the spelling pattern in their test each week to make 16 spellings.

Times tables

We will be doing times table challenges most Wednesdays. Times tables are extremely important in their numeracy and are linked to lots of topics in the curriculum e.g. division, fractions. Please encourage your child to practise daily at home.

 

Many thanks,

Miss Brady, Mrs Thomas and Mr Hutchinson
