Welcome to Hamble
Welcome to Hamble Class! My name is Mrs Tingley and I will be teaching Hamble class this year with the support of a wonderful team. They are; Miss Salter (Full time Teaching Assistant), Mrs Richards (LSA) and Miss Perrett (LSA). We are really excited about the year ahead, ensuring that your children have the best start to their education. Hamble class is made of Reception and Year 1 children. Learning in Hamble is practical, challenging and, most importantly, fun! Please see the curriculum map for more information and don’t hesitate to come and find one of us if you have any questions.
During the year the children will be encouraged to look at and begin to read a variety of books at school and at home. Reading at home is very important and I encourage you to spend a little time each day talking about books and stories. Your child's reading and looking at books at home is recorded in a reading diary. We will change reading books on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This year there will be a new reading challenge to encourage the children to read 5 times a week, with prizes for consistent readers!
We will also teach the skills of reading through differentiated guided reading groups.
Homework will be set on a Friday and is due in on the following Thursday. The homework will be linked with the learning objectives in class.
Each term Year 1children are also given a choice of creative topic homework to do. Their amazing creations are shared and celebrated!
We will have whole class PE on Tuesday morning (dance/gym) and on Friday morning (games). The children will need a named PE kit in school every week. We recommend that these are taken home for washing every half term.
Water bottles & snacks:
We encourage the children to bring a named water bottle to school each day. Please only fill with water, not juice or squash! We supply a fresh fruit / vegetable snack at break time but children may bring their own fruit or vegetable snack in if they prefer.
Please avoid bringing large bags into school as space in Hamble's cloakroom area is limited.
Each term we have a new topic which covers many different areas of the curriculum. The Autumn topic is 'Off we go'! The children will be going on many adventures through the term.
