Welcome to Mrs Vaughan's Class

Our teaching assistant is Mrs Hodgson
Our weekly timetable is below
Welcome back to Term 4. I hope you have all had an enjoyable break and are now ready to get back to learning whilst having fun.
Our topic for this term is
'Bright Lights, Big City'
Below you will see a Topic Web which lists what we will be teaching during this term.
Below are pictures taken when our Visitor 'Ranger Chris' came to visit us in Term 1. We all had a great time and learnt a lot of facts about the past.
Please provide your child with a water bottle every day. This is as well as a drink in their lunch box if they are having a packed lunch.
We have PE 3 times during the school week - on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. All children must have their PE kit in school every day to ensure that they can participate. We will continue to do PE outside once a week so please provide your child with appropriate clothing eg: tracksuit and trainers.
Girls need to have earrings covered and hair tied back. Please also ensure that children have their name in each part of their kit!
Please have your child's name in all of their clothes and belongings!
When your child is given a book to read at home they need to have this in their book bag in school every day to ensure that we can read with them during the school week. We change reading books every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please sign their reading record when they have finished a book so we can give them a new one!
Mini/ Monster Maths
Mini Monster maths books need to also be in school every day. We test the children once every couple of weeks and practice with them frequently. We encourage that you practice with your children 3 times a week to help their progress.
Spellings are given out on Monday and tested on Monday ( In their blue books) with Literacy homework handed out the same day.
Maths is given out on Friday and returned on the following Thursday.
We have reviewed the spelling system used currently for year one and have decided to adapt it to suit the children’s current learning needs. The children will still have 15 spellings from the spelling pattern given out plus the 5 high frequency words taken from the national curriculum year 1/2 list, however the children will only be tested on the five words underlined and the 5 hfw words.
This will not be the system for the whole of the year. It will be reviewed and when appropriate more spellings will be added to the test list.
Below is an example of the cursive script we use in school, If you would like to practice at home please feel free.
If there are any questions, please come and see me or make an appointment for a time after school.
Thank you for your continued support!
