Welcome to Great Barrier Reef Class
Our teacher is Mrs Chamberlain and our two wonderful teaching assistants are Mrs Bunting and Mrs Smith. We are joined by Miss Rolfe for the next two terms as she trains to be a primary teacher.
We share information and images of your children via Seesaw so we encourage you to download the app and you will be able to see activities, photos and videos when they are uploaded. You are welcome to message me and I will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.
We will be doing PE first thing on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons so all children will need appropriate kit. There is no spare kit to borrow so please ensure that kit comes in on the Monday and stays in, especially if your child attends a sports club during the week.
Spellings - these will be sent home each fortnight and these are posted on the class web page. Your child will tell you their group. They will be stuck in to the back of their Yellow Reading Record to practise at home.
Reading - we would love it if your child reads to you or you read to them every night. We understand that this is not always physically possible but if you can do at least three listens per week, that would be great. It is a known fact that children's vocabulary and understanding is improved by reading everyday. Please talk to your children about their reading. It should be a pleasurable experience with a mutual enjoyment of storylines and characters. Question them about their understanding and make predictions about the next chapters.
Times Tables - please encourage your children to go on their TTrockstars login -they will show amazing improvement in their speed of recall.
