The Wedding

On Friday March 10th the children and staff from Class 1 at Walcott School came to visit for the day. Our visitors came to Special Mentions Assembly with us, then we had a play time, and did flower arrangements for the dinner tables, and decorated cakes. At 11.30 we held our play wedding in Holy Trinity Church. Some of our families attended, and Class 3 came along to support us. After the wedding we had our 'reception' on beautifully decorated tables, and this was followed by a disco in the hall. We all had lots of fun and began to get to know each other. Many thanks to Reverend Beth and the bellringers for making it such a special occasion. 

 

Prayer

During Lent the whole school is having a focus on prayer. Children have written their own prayers on paper leaves. Each class took their leaves to the Wild Wood and attached them to the trees and bushes. When Class 1 went we sat around the camp fire and read the prayers before choosing where to put them. After that we sang a hymn. The children are always very excited when we visit the Wild Wood!

 

 

 


 

 

Reading Books

Information for Class 1 Families

Your child will be bringing home reading books every day. They will be changed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, if you have shared the book at home (please let us know by signing the reading record). In the first few weeks we will send home a mixture of reading scheme books (these may have a coloured sticker on the spine), or ‘read to me’ books (these will have a picture sticker in the top right corner).

 

  • Reading scheme books – these books are part of a set especially designed to be shared with children. The child should be telling the story (or giving information) by looking at the pictures, describing what they see, making predictions, summarising the contents of the books afterwards, giving opinions about characters, and holding the book themselves, turning pages and noticing features of the book (front and back cover, where the title is etc)

  • ‘Read to me’ books are individual story or information books which can be read to the child by an adult or older sibling. Discussions about the setting, character and events can take place as you read or afterwards. The reader is ‘modelling’ handling books and using book vocabulary, which will help the child make progress with their own reading, and the process of listening to stories is vital for the development of listening and language skills.

     

    If you have any questions about reading please ask as it is important families feel confident in this area of learning.
