Stephenson Class

Hello and welcome to the Stephenson Class webpage!

 

Welcome to the wonderful world of year 1 and 2. My name is Mrs Killion and I am Stephenson Class’ teacher. Miss Riggall will also be supporting the children in the class each day.  In our class we are helpful, kind and take care of one another. Our children are valued and are always encouraged to try their best, no matter how challenging something may seem at first. We make learning engaging, interactive and fun, and enjoy learning through our exciting topics! 

 

This page will be updated on a weekly basis - so keep looking out for any changes. I will be also uploading some fantastic photos of what we have been learning in class. 

 

If you would like to speak to me or another member of staff you can contact the school office or, if your request is not urgent, you can send a message to the class email - stephenson.woodhouses@gmail.com  


Thank you

Mrs Killion 

Important days

Monday - Spelling test (Year 2)

The children will have their new spelling list written in their spelling books. The spelling list will also be uploaded onto the Stephenson class homework page every Monday so the children can still practise their spellings at home should they leave their spelling books in school. 

 

Tuesday and Wednesday - PE 

Please ensure your child has both indoor and outdoor PE kit in school on these days. No earrings or watches to be worn during PE lessons.

Other important information

Reading

It is really important that you child reads for at least 10-15 minutes each night. We recommend that children aim to read each book twice before changing it. Books will be changed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

 

Reading with your child at home is a crucially important way to support their learning. Reading books together, reading to your child, hearing them read, discussing reading technique, stories, poems and non-fiction texts are all key ways to help your child to develop into an able and accomplished reader and writer.

 

Don't forget your child also has access to the online reading platform Bug Club. This can be accessed for additional online reading books. https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/

 

High Frequency Words 

Your child will be given a set of high frequency words to practise at home, these will be checked and changed as appropriate each Tuesday and Thursday. Research shows that learning just 13 of the most frequently used words will enable children to read 25% of any text. Learning 100 high frequency words gives a beginner reader access to 50% of virtually any text, whether a children's book or a newspaper report.
