Welcome to Falcon!
We are a mixed class from years 1&2 and you will find us in the middle of the 3 key stage one classrooms.
Our teacher is Mrs Wellon, and our teaching assistants are Mrs Knight, Mrs Scott and Ms Clifford.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all the new children and families of Falcon class. We are very much looking forward to working with you all and watching your children flourish and thrive. The new year one children have settled well and are thriving in their new class.
We understand the importance of working closely with parents and carers and keeping them informed of what is happening in school. Please see the attached timetable and topic web so you know what is happening in school, this could be used as a starting point for conversations at home.

In English, the children will initially be celebrating bonfire night by creating tehir own acrostic poems about fireworks and bonfire night itself.
They will then learn the traditional tale 'Jack and the Beanstalk' using Pie Corbett's talk for writing. Over three weeks the children will learn the story, adapt it and then write their own version of the tale.
Their learning in science will be based upon plants and how they are vital to our lives today by supplying different products we use in our everyday lives. They will develop an understanding of the basic structure of plants and how they are pollinated, how they reproduce using seeds and how these are then dispersed. In geograpy they will develop an understanding of the importance of weather in order for plants to grow.
This year we have sent home the whole terms spellings in weekly blocks. Please help yoru children to learn these at home, it really does help their learning in phonics and their general written work. They will be quizzed on these within school each Friday.
If you are unsure which list of spellings your child should be working on(see spelling documents below) please speak to Mrs Wellon or the class TA and they will show you.
