Welcome to Mouse Class and your child’s first year at Tweseldown Infant School. The Mouse Class teachers have really enjoyed meeting everyone during the home visits. You have all worked really hard on your self portraits and mouse pictures and they now have pride of place on our Mouse Class Wall.
Over the next few weeks we will be exploring the classroom, outside area and other exciting parts of the school. The children will learn our school rule and we will be creating our own class rules and learning all about the class reward chart and house point system.
Our topic is All About Me and the children will be sharing pictures of their families with a small group of children and writing a label to put on display. They will be drawing their own self portraits using different media to add to our class display. We will also be looking at nursery rhymes and creating craft activities based on them.
The children will be learning to count and recognise numbers to 10/20 and put them in the correct order depending on their next steps.
We will also be starting phase 1 phonics which will introduce the children to listening to environmental sounds before moving onto phase 2 phonics beginning with introducing the sounds s, a, t, p, i, n and the actions from Jolly Phonics that accompany them.
As the term progresses will be assessing each child and planning their next steps. We will share this information with you at their first parents evening in October, however if you have any questions beforehand please do not hesitate to ask us.
We are looking forward to seeing you all very soon.
Mrs Coulston, Mrs Kennelly and Miss Morris
