Miss Todd's Class
Hello and welcome to Miss Todd’s class page. We all shine in this classroom. We work hard to achieve our best and are fabulous friends to each other. We have a lot of exciting things happening in our classroom so please take a look.
Children should have their full P.E. in school throughout the term and only take their kit home at the end of the term. Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Friday, however, P.E. kits may be required on others days, including on Friday for Shinetime, so please ensure P.E. kits are in school during term time.
We love reading in our class and try and read as much as possible. Everyone is sent home a book pack every Tuesday and expected to read at home each evening as part of their homework. After a week of becoming familiar with the stories your child will be asked questions to check their understanding of the story.
Children will be regularly assessed and the class teacher will decide when it is appropriate for your child to move up a book band.
At the beginning of the term, each child is assessed on their phonic and spelling knowledge. From this assessment, we group the children and allocate their spellings
Spellings are checked each Tuesday and given out the following day. It is really important that you practise your spellings throughout the week to help you improve your writing and to achieve your targets.
Our Happy Team
We really work together as a team to make our classroom a very happy and exciting place to work. We all work hard to carry out our monitor jobs with pride, as well as celebrating each other's achievements.
These are a few of our favourite things
Our mission statement is very important to us. This is a promise each of us has made to make sure our class is the best it can be.
Monitors are people who are given fun jobs to help around the classroom. Each person has a responsibility to keep our learning environment clean, tidy and working effectively. Jobs range from register monitor to book monitors.
Traffic Light Trays
The Traffic Light Trays help Miss Todd to understand how we found our work. Traffic light trays are called that because there are three trays, one green, one amber, and one red. When you put your work in green you have achieved your learning objective. If you place your work in amber, it means you may need a little help next time. When you put it in red it means you found the work a bit tricky and Miss Todd will help you.
Tell A Good Tale Jar
The Tell a Good Tale Jar is used when somebody in our class is nice, worked well or helped somebody else out. We tell Miss Todd our good tale and we get to put a pebble in the jar. When the jar is full the last person to tell a tale gets to choose a game for the class to play.
