Independent writing

This week, the Literacy group had long sessions of independent writing, as we finished our last writing module of this half-term. They have worked hard, showed real stamina and produced some impressive work.
I am very proud of them!

Our new “worry monster”!

We have a new addition to Tiger Class! During our PSHE lesson – with “Paws” and the Jigsaws last week – we discussed our worries and how we can manage those. The children suggested having a class “worry monster” and today they were surprised with one. We are currently involved in enthusiastic discussions about what to call him, but he is already extremely popular with all Tigers. 🐯🧡

Harvest blessings

We have been busy preparing for the Harvest Festival and thinking about our blessings and the things we are thankful for.

Please encourage your child to practise our song at home, as we will record it for the online festival during next week.

New Literacy unit and new Topic!

Our Literacy lesson today was fun!
“Little Red Reading Hood” was a hit!

We have also started our “Toys” topic and the children have been asked to send me a picture of their favourite toy, so we can use it in our class display. They might also ask you (parents and grandparents) what were your favourite toys when you were a child. Any picture of those are also very welcome!


New Literacy unit!

This week, we are starting a new unit of work in our Literacy lessons, based on “Little Red Reading Hood” , by Lucy Rowland and Ben Mantle.

This is one of my favourite books and I can’t wait to see how it might inspire you too!

Meet the Tiger Team

As we start a new school year, I would just like to introduce you to the team working with Tiger Class this year.
I will continue to teach the Class from Monday to Thursday and Mrs Foster (who is also our SENCO) will teach them on Friday mornings (Science and RE).
Our TAs for this year are Mrs Rohr (Mon-Weds), Mrs Harris (Weds-Fri pm) and Ms Levine (Thur-Fri am), and they will be supporting in all lessons, as well as leading some group sessions for Phonics and whole-class Art and D&T.
On Wednesdays and Fridays, we have a new PE coach leading those sessions and on Thursdays, we will have a specialist from the Shropshire Music Service delivering our Music lessons.
During the Autumn Term, we will also be joined by Ms Leese, an Associate Teacher who is doing her Teacher Training with the University of Chester, and will be based at Tiger Class to start with. She has already met the children this week and is, obviously, smitten with them! 🐯🧡
If you have any questions about the Tiger Team, feel free to drop me a message.

Back to School!

One week to go, Tigers!

Here is what you need to know before next week:

1) Tigers are all to return to School on Wednesday 2nd September. Our start time is 9am and we will finish the day at 3pm. Please make sure you observe the one-way system around the playground and adhere to our class drop-off and pick-up times. We will enter our classroom via the veranda side door, but Mrs Rohr or I will come and collect the children from the playground on the first day to show them the way. From Thursday, they can make their way to the classroom by themselves.

2) We will have PE on Wednesdays and Fridays during the Autumn term, starting next week, so please make sure the children come to School wearing their PE kits on those days – including on the first day back (Weds 2nd September). The children will wear their PE kits ALL DAY on those days, so please do not send their other uniform to School.

3) Children are only allowed to bring to School the essential items listed in the letter circulated earlier this month. For Tigers these are: a coat / raincoat, a water bottle, a School book bag (empty on the first day. We will send reading records, homework books and spellings books home when appropriate) and their packed lunch (if not having School dinners. Please remember all Y2 children are entitled to free-school meals).

Please make sure ALL belongings are labelled with the child’s name.

All pupils will be issued with a pencil case containing all items they will need for daily use in class, which are not to be shared. Please make sure no other items are brought to School from home.

Most new routines have been outlined in the previous letter, but please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Looking forward to seeing the cubs again!

Enjoy the last few days of your holidays,
Mrs Crowe
