Welcome to 1SB!
Hello, and welcome to our class page. We are really looking forward to an exciting year of learning ahead of us. Please check this page regularly to see what your children have been up to in class and find out more about the topics that we are enjoying each term. Please feel free to come and discuss any queries or concerns with us - our door is always open!
All children in the school are rewarded for reading and for learning at home. They will receive a merit every time they read, complete some homework, go to clubs after school or out of school and it is recorded in their log. There are ideas in our learning leaflets on things you can do with your child at home to support their learning . Just make a note in their Home Learning/Reading Record logbook so we can reward all their hard work. These merits are then translated into 'Dollars' to spend in the Homework Hut each half term. The more 'Dollars' you earn the better the items you can buy!
15 merits = Bronze
20 merits = Silver
25 merits = Gold
We are aiming to achieve a full house of Gold Dollars EVERY TERM this year, we can do it but only with your support at home
In 1SB we use Signalong to accompany our verbal communication. When using signalong you speak and use the sign at the same time. All the children in the class know key signs and it is part of our everyday routine. If you would like to use sign to support communication at home here are some videos of a few signs we use in school. Please let us know if you would like to learn any other signs that would be useful to use with your child at home. We will add video clips of more signs as the school year progresses and upon request.
We hope you find signalong a useful tool!
