Learning to Learn
In KS1, we encourage the children to develop the vital skills of collaboration, pro-activeness, being reflective, motivated and determined learners, with the following characters; the collaborative bumblebee, the proactive squirrel, the reflective fish, the motivated rainbow and the determined beaver. .
Woodpeckers Class Commitments
As a Class, we have set up our Class Commitments. These are behaviours we have agreed need to be shown to help everyone learn.
Our Commitments are...
Use listening ears and follow instructions
Take it in turns to speak
Use walking feet and inside voices in the school
Have kind hands, kind feet and use kind words
Look after our classroom
Keep ourselves and our friends safe
The children have signed the class commitments to show that they will follow them.
Developing a love of reading
We want all the children to develop a love of reading. We will provide the children with a wide range of reading experiences daily to support this, exposing the children to as many high quality authors and books as possible.
It is essential that the children read as much as possible at home, which can be a mixture of school and home books. The children who read regularly at home, make significantly more progress across the curriculum than those who do not. Reading at home needs to be recorded in the reading diary, which should be signed to confirm that the reading has taken place. Children who read regularly at home will be rewarded to recognise their efforts. Please ensure reading record books are in school every day.
Thank you for visiting our class page and make sure you come back regularly for updates. I am always around at the end of each day and I am happy to chat so please come and see me.
