Mr Fisher

 

Welcome to Mr Fisher's Class!

 

Below is some key information that you might find useful.

 

Our Autumn Term Topic is
'Toy Story'.

 

This is a History based topic. During this topic the children will compare classic Victorian toys with the toys of today. They will also study the famous inventor Ole Christiansen who created lego!!

 

Homework
This will be handed out on a Friday and is due back in the following Friday at the very latest. Where possible, homework will link to work being covered in class.

 

Spellings
Spellings are also handed out on a Friday ready for a test the following Friday. Please make sure the children are practising their spellings every week.

 

Reading Books

 I am encouraging the children to change reading books as regularly as possible. Please ensure you record any reading that takes place at home with a simple comment inside the small blue book (Reading Record). Finished books can be placed inside the classroom crate on a daily basis but they will not be changed unless the reading record has been written in.

 

Over the course of the term I will look to update this class page with all the different things that are going on in Year 1/2.
