Welcome to Vauxhall Bridge Class Parents and Children,

 

I’m Mrs. Jeevahan-the class teacher and also within the classroom is Mrs. Hunjan and Mrs Preston who are our teaching assistants.

We change our reading books every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. When you read with your child, please write a comment in your child’s reading record book, if there is no comment then we will not change the reading book.

Homework is given on a Friday and is due back the following Wednesday.

We have PE on a Monday and a Wednesday afternoon, so please ensure your child has his/her PE kit at school on these days.

All the children have settled in well and Vauxhall Bridge class team look forward to work with you this academic year!

Thank you,

Mrs.Saratha Jeevahan.

 

Week beginning 6th July 2020

July 4, 2020
Good Morning Year 1 children and parents!
Our topic for this term is ‘Puppet on a String’ and is based on history. It focuses on changes within living memory. Children will begin to understand and use words and phrases relating to the passing of time. We have learnt about toys and household objects in the past and compared it to the same in modern times and continue with learning about schools a hundred years ago and compare it to schools in the present day.

Children can continue to post their work, photos and videos at Classdojo. Thank you everyone. It has been wonderful to see your posts. Keep in touch !

Parents please contact Mrs Jeevahan and Mrs Ramakrishnan with any queries or questions at howardyear1@gmail.com

Our learning challenges this week are fun and exciting! Enjoy…

History:

This week, we are looking at two aspects of the past and comparing it to modern life – household items as well as school life.

Schools – In the past schools were very strict, all children sat in rows, teachers used black boards and chalk. Children used slates and chalk. They also had ink bottles , pens and blotting paper to absorb the surplus ink before turning a page. They did not have all the fun resources we use in school now – Interactive White boards linked to the internet, white boards, colouring pencils, felt tip pens, computers, maths resources…

Did you know Howard Primary School was built in 1897 and opened in April 1898? That is 122 years ago…

Check out this picture of a classroom from the past. Now, compare it to your class room. What is same, what is different?
