Mrs Buchanan

                          Welcome to Class 9!  

Welcome to summer term! 

Our teachers are Mrs Buchanan and Mrs Garratt! 

Mrs Buchanan teaches us Monday- Wednesday and Mrs Garratt through from Thursday to Friday. As this is a change for the children and yourselves, we will be here if you want to ask any questions, have a chat or just let us know about soemthing. Please feel free to come in and meet us too (if you haven't had the chance to yet!)

Our topic this term is...Castles!

In English our focus, as always, will be the key skills needed in Year 1 - these will include handwriting, spellings of everyday words and using capital letters and full stops in the correct place.  

A greater focus this term will be on our cursive handwriting and the use of conjunctions and adjectives to extend and up-level our writing. 

We will be looking at a great range of books. One of which (below) will be doing an Art project around... so exciting times ahead!

PE will take place on a Wednesday afternoon. The children  will be doing outdoor PE . Can you please ensure that they have the correct outdoor PE kit with trainers and a warm tracksuit and can you check that all pieces of kit are correctly named.

Swimming will take place on a Friday afternoon, and we are in great need of helpers! So, if you can offer any help during this time, please come and speak to either of us. Thank you! 



English and Maths homework will be set on Education City so please check this each week. Please can you ensure that your child gets an opportunity to complete this every week.



The children must read at home at least 3 times a week and talk about what they have read.  Can you please ensure they have their book in school everyday. Books will be changed on a Monday and children will be given enough reading material to last the week. Please ensure you sign your childs reading record otherwise books will not be changed. Thank you for your support.



Spelling Homework

Please start to learn column 5 of the Year 1 spelling list. If there are any spellings from column 1, 2, 3 or 4 that your child is still unsure of then please focus on these first before moving to column 5.

If you would like to help within the classroom, to hear readers or  you don't mind cutting, sticking and laminating then please let me know. All help is always much appreciated!


Thank you for your continued support.
