Year 1 Thistles 2020 - 2021

Miss Turner

Welcome to Thistle Class!
It has been so lovely to welcome the children back into school. We have a great start to the new year and we cannot wait to get stuck into lots of learning, adventure and fun. 

Please feel free to contact me during school hours via a phone call or email. My email address is aturner@tattenhallpark.cheshire. This will allow me pick up any communication or messages more quickly than leaving a note in your child's Reading Record. 

We will change reading books every Friday and the children will be given 2 books to read/keep until the next changing day. Due to current hygiene guidance, we won't be changing books more than once a week. I will listen to the children read during phonics lessons and 1:1 throughout the week. I will note in the children's Reading Records when they have read with me 1:1. Please could you record when you have read with your child at home also. 

The class will have Actiphons and PE lessons with an external coach every Thursday morning. Therefore, PE kits need to be in school on a Thursday. We will send PE kits home if they become dirty or at the end of a half term. This may change if hygiene guidance changes. 

Please ensure that your child has a named water bottle with them each day. 

I want to make the most of our wonderful outdoor space and I will be taking lots of lessons outdoors this year. Please can you child bring in wellies that can stay in school. This will enable us to make the maximum use of the field. 

We will be sending home a KS1 newsletter soon, which will give you some more details about daily school life and what we will be learning this year. 

Do not hestitate to contact me with any questions. I am very much looking forward to a fantastic year with the class.
