Pandas Class 2019-2020!


Welcome to our class web page. We use this page to post photographs of activities that have been happening in Panda Class as well as any useful links for use at home. Check back soon for photos, news and activities!




This is a link to a very useful video to help parents with phonics at home. The aim of this video is to support all parents with the correct pronunciation of all of the sounds so that the children can be well supported at home.




Panda Class term 1

This year our learning will be starting with a question and the first question is...


Who am I?


Panda Class Family Challenge/Newsletter                           20.9.19



Family challenge: Your challenge is to find a rock to bring into school which we can use. The children will move the rock to identify what they are having for lunch (school dinner or packed lunch). Rocks need to be in by Friday 27th September 2019. The rock should be no bigger than a £5 note but not so small that we cannot write the children’s name on it. *Please make sure that this is not a precious rock as it will be used within the classroom.


Wow, what a busy three weeks we have had in Panda Class. The children have all settled in so well and the adults have loved coming to visit you all. Thank you for welcoming us into your homes.


In class this week, we have introduced our ‘Behaviour Bamboo Stem’. All of the children have a little panda with their name on which starts on a green leaf. Everyone starts their day on a green leaf which means they are going to have a good day.


The children move to orange if they have been given multiple warnings and need to have some time out. If they move to red then they have still not improved upon their behaviour or have broken our class rules by physically or verbally hurting someone. The children will then have some supervised time out away from the classroom. If the children continue to make the wrong choice, they will move to the bottom and will miss their break time/part of their lunch time. This is in line with our school behaviour policy.


Our hope for the class is that the children will have their names moved up.  If they are moved up to the gold leaf, they have showed us how amazing they are and we celebrate in class. If the children continue to impress us, they get their names moved up to the star. If they reach the star, the children earn a very special scented sticker (which all of the adults wish they could have!)


A few highlights from the week:


  • Phonics - we have been using our listening ears to hear environmental sounds around us. We have been listening to animal sounds and trying to recreate these. We have also been playing lots of rhyming games.
  • Maths - we have been exploring numbers to 10 and ordering numbers to 10. We have also been practising writing our numbers on a whiteboard.
  • PE – we have been exploring jumping in different ways. We have also been participating in some Write Dance activities to get our arms and muscles ready to write.


Final note: We had our class picture for the Kentish Express today. Please keep an eye out in the newspaper and online for the photograph.
