Welcome to Rabbit Class
Our Teacher is Mrs Ashdown, and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Conners.
We start each morning with handwriting practice followed by a story, Phonics and then English. After break we have our Guided Reading and Maths. In the afternoon we like to begin with some Maths Fluency followed by our Topic work.
PE days: Rabbit class will need their PE kit on Wednesday and Friday. Please make sure that children bring in their full kit, including trainers, in case the weather is nice enough to go outside.
We will have Forest School during the school year so we will be asking children to bring in a Forest School kit. This is separate to their P.E. kit as they will need practical clothes with long sleeves and long legs to prevent scratches. In the summer we will ask for sun hats and suntan lotion to be worn.
Water bottles should be brought in every day. KS1 are entitled to a school-provided snack, but you can also bring your own in.
We send home handwriting practice and spelling sheets every Friday to be completed for the next week. After they have been seen by the teacher, we send these back home so that children can practise the spellings.
Please read to a member of your household for at least 10 minutes a day and practise your sounds. (These can be found in the reading journal and at the front of their reading books.)
In Rabbit class we use our iPads on a daily basis to practice our Maths and English skills. You can continue this at home using the following websites:
Teach Your Little Monster: https://www.teachyourmonster.org/account/play
TT Rockstars: https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth
Note – Children will have logins to Teach your Little Monster, TT Rockstars and Google Classroom stuck in their Reading Journals.
We expect every member of Rabbit class to follow our school rules: Calm, Respectful and Safe. We earn Shining Stars for being outstanding during our day, these can be awarded for brilliant behaviour or super work. Once we reach our class target for the term we receive our class reward. In the past we have had movie afternoons, PJ days, water fights and extra playtime.
Spring Term Topics
In Rabbit class, the children will be learning about life in Ancient Greece and the very first Olympic Games. Children will also make their own soldier’s shield in DT lessons. After half-term, we will then learn more about metals and how we use metals for different things, like money!
