Welcome to Orange Class!
The adults who work in Orange Class are Mrs Sawdon, Mrs Carr, Mrs Aftab, Mrs Ali and Mrs Speight. Mrs Carr teaches Orange Class on Mondays and Tuesdays. Mrs Sawdon is in class Wednesday to Friday.
Every morning we start the day with Phonics, using 'Read Write Inc' to help us learn to read and write. In Orange Class we have PE on Tuesday afternoons and Thursday mornings. We have our Golden Time on Friday afternoons; this is when we get to choose a fun activity to take part in as a reward for our fantastic behaviour! We have started our year by choosing our class rules and drawing up a class charter showing everybody how we behave in Orange Class. We decided that we will:
- Look after our classroom.
- Be kind.
- Be helpful.
- Try our best.
- Have fun!
These are some of the books that we like to read together in Orange Class.
Some of our favourite authors are:
- Judith Kerr
- Jill Murphy
- Emily Gravett
- Shirley Hughes
- Janet and Allan Ahlberg
- Jeanne Willis
- Julia Donaldson
- Anthony Browne
Please read at least 3 times a week at home with your child, and sign their reading record to show what they have done. Pupils who are still on the phonics scheme will receive a general reading book plus a RWI phonics book matched to their phonics level. Please try to read both, and practise them more than once!
We are starting the year by learning about traditional tales. We are reading a new traditional tale each week. We will be doing lots of role play to retell the stories as well as some writing about each traditional tale we learn. In Geography we are going to learn all about our school and local area and as part of our history we will learn about what Wakefield was like in the past.
In Science we will be thinking about the seasons especially Autumn and Winter. We will also learn about our body and our senses.
