Miss Addis

Orange Class Teacher

5, 4, 3, 2, 1 BLAST OFF! 


Dear Parents, 


Welcome to Orange Class. I hope you are excited for your second half term in Orange Class. We have had a super start to the year and Orange Class team and I are excited to embark on our next learning adventure and learn more about Space together!  As we return, please find below some helpful information regarding our weekly routine:

Staff in Orange Class are 

  • Miss Addis  
  • Mrs Howard 
  • Miss Threadgold 

  • We are continuing our topic of ‘Space’. We will be blasting off and learning about Cape Canaveral and why this is singnificant geographically and historically. Please see more information outlined in the Autumn 2 medium term plan.

    Reading  - Reading is a key attribute that we promote in Orange Class, it helps with their writing, spelling and also self-esteem. We are proud readers in Orange Class and each time your child reads at home, they receive a sticker on their special reading bookmark. If they complete a row, they receive 5 dojos. The children will read in school regularly through individual reading, guided reading and whole class reading as we progress through the year (they do not receive stickers for this.) 

    Spellings – Spellings are changing this year and there will be no more weekly spelling quizzes in any year group. Instead we will have weekly spelling lessons every Friday.  
    Homework – In Orange Class the children will be given weekly homework on a Friday, which should be handed in on the following Thursday for marking.  

    PE and outdoor learning - PE will be on a Tuesday. Children will need to come to school in PE kits every Tuesday. They will NOT get changed at school. If we are doing outdoor learning – I will text/ email to let you know in advance. Waterproofs and wellies can be kept in school – they are useful to have in school so we can still get outside even on wet days. Please name everything! 

    Snacks – Please send your child’s snack in a small, labelled container or just with your child’s name on. One snack will be plenty thankk you and please remember we are a Nut Free school. 

    Helpers – Unfortunately, at this current time, we are unable to have parent helpers in school yet, but we will keep you updated as we would really appreciate your support later on in the academic year.  

    If you have any queries or questions, please email me, or call the school office and we will try our best to help.  

    My email is: 

    Each member of the Orange Class team is excited to be working with your child this year and to work alongside yourselves to support them. This year will be filled with inquiry-based learning and laughter. 

    In advance, we would like to thank all parents and guardians for your support, enthusiasm and most importantly thank you for trusting us with your amazing children. Let’s continue on this wonderful journey.

    Kind regards, 
    Beth Addis, Julie Howard and Katherine Threadgold
