Jolly Jellyfish

Welcome to the Jolly Jellyfish

What a busy 2 weeks!

We have been reading the Three Little Pigs and have been preparing ourselves to write the story next week. 

In Maths we have been counting to 50, using tens and ones and ten frames - we are all getting very good at counting in 5s and 10s. 

Our new Long Row PE coach has been very impressed with the enthusiasm from all the children - lets hope the good weather continues so we can carry on outside!

 

Thank you too those of you who made the online meeting - apologies for the poor sound. We will put a summary of the information shared further down the page. 

If you have any questions please e mail info@longrow.derbyshire.sch.uk and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as we can.

Thank you again for all your support.

Meet the Teacher Summary

  • Thank you for your patience at drop off and pick up times! It is getting smoother each day especially now parents are coming through the arch way at pick up time.
  • We will be teaching Maths, English and Phonics every morning. The children have a break at 10am and then lunch from 11.30-12.30. The afternoons are a mix of subjects including science, music and PSHE and we also use this time to give the children some extra reading, maths and phonics should they need it. We have an afternoon break each day as well.
  • PE is every Wednesday - thankyou for sending the children in their kit. Please ensure hair is tied back and earrings are removed.
  • Snacks - children can have snacks in school for break time. This should be fruit or a plain biscuit. Fruit is now available in school. Please ensure children have a water bottle in school each day - and only water please.
  • Phonics Testing - we are required to carry out the Year 1 Phonics Assessment. This will be done before Christmas. Please don't worry - the test is informal, very quick and carried out by us in school. It is a useful tool for us to make sure we have covered everything especially considering the time children have had away from school.
  • There will be a parents evening - it is likely to be carried out virtually. Details and a date will be sent out shortly. 
  • Homework is handed in each Wednesday - and will be given out each Friday.
  • Children will read with the class teacher and teaching assistant each week. Books will be changed by a member of staff - this enables us to quarantine books that come from home.

We know this has been a very unusual time but we have been working hard and have planned some fun activities so that we can all get to know each other properly in September - we are very excited about having you all in school again (it's been very quiet!). 

Please check the Jolly Jellyfish class page over the summer - we will be adding some pictures of the classroom early in the holidays so you will know what it looks like.
