St Patrick

Welcome to St Patrick!

We are a class of year 1 pupils and year 2 pupils.

Our teachers are Miss Blackman and Miss Parr.

Our class teaching assistant is Mrs Smith

 

Below we have listed some helpful things about our class that we thought you might find useful to know.

 

Our Learning

  • At All Saints, we teach a creative curriculum which is taught through termly themes. In KS1, English and all foundation subjects (history, geography, art and DT) are taught through our themes.  
  • Our themes begin with a super starter activity to get the children hooked on the subject, they have in the past included crimes to solve, visitors, trips or mysterious packages to investigate!
  • The theme ends with a fantastic finisher. These are equally exciting celebrations of their learning!
  • The children love this way of learning and are very enthusiastic about continuing their learning at home. Maths, RE, PE, Computing and French are taught discretely.

 

Behaviour

All children throughout the school all follow the same 6 Golden rules at all times and are encouraged and rewarded for being ‘green to go’.  

  • 1.Do Listen  2.Do be gentle  3.Do be kind and helpful  4.Do be honest  5.Do look after property  6.Do work hard. 

  • If, after a reminder, a child continues to break a rule, their name will be moved on our class traffic lights. Each colour (yellow, orange and red) has a consequences. 

 

Rewards

  • Children are rewarded individually with raffle tickets.  Raffle tickets are placed into the class box and a draw is done at the end of each day. Winners are able to take a prize from the class treasure chest! 

  • Individual children are selected for our Whole School Praise Book and their names are read out on Fridays in assembly. This includes ‘Star of the week’ award for the child in class who has shown increased effort, drive, determination or resilience. We also have a Maths star and a Literacy star each week. 

  • Points can also now be earnt for their house team.   

 

Homework

  • Children are set one piece of homework on a Friday (alternating between maths and literacy each week), to be handed in the following Friday. 

  • Children are given the opportunity to change their books everyday and are encouraged to read at least 5 times a week. 

  • New spellings are sent out on a Friday and will be tested the following Friday. 

  • We have a show off read to take home on Thursday that comes back on Monday.

Challenges

  • We love a spicy challenge in St Patrick’s class.  Every lesson has a challenge and every piece of homework does too. 

  • The homework challenge and the class chocolate challenge are optional but we encourage children to complete them.  

  • Children are also given the chance to enter the termly curriculum challenge for the chance to win a reward.

 

PE

  • PE takes place on a Thursday. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school on this day.  

  • Children will need dark coloured jogging bottoms for outside P.E, along with their school jumper and dark coloured shorts and a white t-shirt for indoors.  Trainers or plimsoles are also required.   

  • Children must be able to take out their earrings before the lesson and are responsible for looking after these.  It may be easier for you to remove them on PE days.  

  • Long hair should be tied up.  

 

Supporting learning at home

Where possible, we encourage children to learn at home through everyday experiences. Linking family days out to our theme is a brilliant way to do this and children love coming into school and telling the class what they’ve learnt.

 

 

Keep In Touch

  • We have an informal open door policy in key stage 1. 

  • If you wish to speak to our teacher just catch her on the playground at the end of the school day after she has safely seen all of the children in the class out to their appropriate adult. 

  • If after school is not convenient to you: phone up the school office and request that the teacher phones you back to arrange a more mutually convenient time. 

  • Failing all of the above – write a note to the teacher asking to speak to them and get your child to pass it on.

 

School Core Priorities

  • Our school priorities are reading and writing.  We shall be focusing on these throughout all aspects of learning.
