Welcome to Chepstow Class!
Our teachers are Mrs Broomfield and
Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Low
Over the next two terms we will be having a History and Geography focus. We will find out about the life and works of Isambard Kingdom Brunel in term 5 and then explore different Geographical features in term 6. To find out about the complete curriculum, check out our curriculum map below.
We will try to share your child's learning with you on a regular basis via Seesaw. Do ask if you are not sure how to access this, as lots of useful information will also be sent this way. You will also be able to send us messages via Seesaw and we will try to respond promptly.
Chepstow Class PE sessions will be on Tuesdays and Fridays, and this term we ask that children come to school in their PE kit on those days (white t-shirt and black shorts) and wearing suitable shoes. On Tuesdays, PE will be outside as often as possible so trainers are advised.
We are now getting our usual fruit and veg deliveries, however, if you child would prefer they can bring their own healthy snack for their morning break. Please ensure it does not contain nuts.
Children will also need to bring their water bottle.
We would ask you to read with your child as often as possible- it really does make a huge difference to their progress. If they are not in the mood to read to you, it is fine to read to them or to take it in turns to read a page each- it should be an enjoyable experience, not a chore! They will bring books home from school, but they may sometimes rather read things they choose at home or at the library. Talking about what they have read or asking questions about a story you have read to them is also invaluable and we are really grateful for your support in this area. We will be changing their books on Tuesdays and putting returned books into quarantine for 72 hours before they are given out again! If you need to let us know how they are getting on with their reading, do send us a message on Seesaw.
Spelling lists will be sent home at the beginning of term and will be tested on Fridays. They may practise a particular phonic sound, be taken from the "common exception words" list of high frequency words that are tricky to spell, or practise a particular spelling rule.
