Miss Higgins

Welcome to South America 2020-2021

Class Teachers: Miss Dixon and Miss Higgins 

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Beattie 


This term, we will have PE on a Wednesday. On this day your child should attend school in their PE kit. Please be dressed for the weather as we will be mostly outside. Children can wear black shorts and yellow PE t-shirt but if it is a cooler day, they can wear black tracksuit bottoms or leggings and school hoodie. Please make sure that hair is tied back and remove your child's earrings on these days before they attend school if they cannot take them out themselves. Under exceptional circumstances earrings can be covered with plasters but these must be provided by you and kept in school. 

Water Bottles

Please remember you need a water bottle in school every day. We will send them home every night for a wash and refill. 


-Reading: Children are expected to read 4 times a week. To monitor reading progress, please record any reading in your child's reading record book. To allow time for books to be quarrinteed, they will be changed on Mondays and Thursdays. If your child finishes their book before a day they are changed please get them to read back over it and ask questions about the book to further develop their fluency and understanding 

-Maths: Children will be set MyMaths homework every Thursday and it will be due the following week. You can access the website here. This work will reflect learning that is taking place in the classroom - for example when we are exploring place value in class, MyMaths set will be on place value

- Spelling: Activities are set every Thursday on Edshed for children to practise the spellings taught that week in school 

- Additional homework will be set on a Thursday and needs to be returned the following Wednesday. This homework will include a variety of activities including: discussions for Big Write, spelling, punctuation, grammar and Maths. Maths activities set will be based upon areas missed from the Year 1 curriculum due to lockdown. Sometimes this homework will be glued into your child's orange homework book and other times it will be available online only. All homework can be recorded into their orange book. Please keep their book in their book bag so it is always available in school
