Welcome to Palm Class!
Hello everybody and welcome to Palm Class!
Palm class is a year 1 and 2 mixed class. In the class this year there will be myself, Mrs Wilson (Class teacher), Miss Aboo (TA) and on a Friday the class will be taught by Miss Leach.
PE will be on a Wednesday and Friday.
Please make sure your child has a PE Kit in school. This needs to simply be a pair of shorts and a t-shirt and a pair of pumps or trainers for going outside. P.E kits can be left in school and taken home at the end of the half term for a wash.
Homework will be set on Google Classrooms. Your child will have a homework grid that has a variety of English, Maths and Topic activities on it for them to complete. They choose to do at least one activity each week (although they can do more!) Your child's username and password will be stuck in their Reading Record Book. Their homework needs to submitted by Thursday, as I will look at it before Friday and send a certificate home to those children who have completed homework.
Reading - We expect your child to read at least three times a week at home to an adult. This needs to be recorded in your child's reading record and signed by an adult. This record needs to be brought into school every day. We will check this on a Friday. Again, they will get a certificate if they do this.
Book Changes - Book changes will happen every Monday in your child's Read, Write, Inc group.
Children will need to bring a water bottle to school and it would be great if all clothes and coats can be clearly labelled.
My door is always open and I am only a phone call away. If you have any concerns or anything you want to chat about, please do so. Alternatively, you can drop me an email to the class email address which is email@example.com
Here is to a great year and new adventures!
Mrs Wilson :)

Topic - Who was to blame for The Great Fire of London?
As historians, we will learn about events beyond living memory that are significant nationally or globally in learning about the events that took place in 1666 during the Great Fire of London, as well as describing the causes and consequences of this event.
We will distinguish between an object and the material from which it is made, identify and name a variety of everyday materials, including wood, plastic, glass, metal, water, and rock, describe the simple physical properties of a variety of everyday materials and compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of their simple physical properties.
