Welcome to Kynance

In our class we will continue to learn through fun, play-based activities that are planned around different themes. We have lots of opportunities to choose our own activities like we did last year, but we will be increasingly taking part in 'adult-led activities' with the adults in our class. 

 

Timetable information

On Thursday and Friday we will be taking part in P.E lessons led by St Ives Secondary School. We will be exploring gymnastics where we will learn to move in different ways, follow instructions and use our own space and equipment safely and effectively. Please be aware that P.E slots may be subject to change and we would appreciate it if P.E kits are kept in school all week. 

 

Seasonal Topic

We are beginning this year by learning through the theme ‘Homes and Houses through the Ages’.  We will be learning about the different places where people have lived through history including caves and castles! To find out more please open our topic medium term plan below in the link section to find out more. 

 

Keep an eye on our class page where we will be updating photographs and information about what we have been learning in school!

 

Library

Our library slot is currently on a Friday afternoon. The children are really enjoying choosing a new book each week to take home. This book is for you to share with your child as a supplement to their Read Write Inc book.  Please remember to return library books every Friday to enable us to provide your child with a new book.

 

Homework 

We believe homework is anything children do outside of the normal school day that contributes to their learning. Homework encompasses a whole variety of activities instigated by teachers and parents/carers to support the children's learning.

The new homework menu will be sent home with your child during the first week back, but is also available to download from the link below. Throughout this half term, the aim is collect 10 points by completing a range of exciting challenges. 

The children will have an opportunity to share their wonderful work with their peers in school time and during our shine assembly. As well as this, there will be a homework display board to celebrate their efforts.  

 

Reading

It is fundamental that children read at home to an adult every evening. Reading develops language skills, exercises the brain, enhances concentration, inspires imagination and encourages a thirst for knowledge.

The children will be working towards their Reading Karate awards. By reading each night they will achieve certificates and wrist bands! 

 

Coats and jumpers, water bottles and fruit

Please ensure that your child is supplied with a labelled coat and jumper. 

A water bottle with your child's name can be kept in the classroom so the children can keep hydrated all day. 

Fruit is available free of charge at break time but please feel free to provide your child with their own fruit/vegetable snack if you prefer.  Tuck is also available to the children before playtime - please could money for this be provided in a purse or wallet. 

 

If you have any questions please ask myself or Miss Jones at the end of the day or arrange an appointment via the office.
