Welcome back to a new year at Drapers Mills! Myself and Mrs Tuckell are excited to continue our learning journey together. This year we will be looking forward to lots of new learning experiences, fun and achievements. This year, PE will be on a Monday and a Wednesday so please can you ensure your child has a kit for these days. Homework will be set on a Monday and will consist of spellings, maths and English work to be completed by the following Monday. Home readers will be changed daily and the children will have the chance to earn prizes through the race into reading scheme. This term's main topic will be London so please feel free to explore this subject area with your child at home.
Looking forward to a great year with Oxford Class.
AND THEY'RE OFF!
We are very pleased in Oxford class at how well the children are taking to their new found independence with their daily reading. We are encouraging the children to choose their own books (within their capabilities) and to write a small passage about what they think about the story they have read. This will not only show their level of comprehension but also highlight the types of genre that they enjoy reading.
