Our new topic is "The Enchanted Woodland" !
If you go down to the woods today you’re sure of a big surprise! Foxes and badgers, voles and mice, beady-eyed owls in the swaying tree tops. Beneath the leaves are tiny footprints…. Animals or imp? You decide! Deciduous or evergreen? What can you find? Can you match a leaf to it's tree? Can you match a petal to it's flower? Let's build a den, stick by stick and branch by branch. Or we could make a teeny tiny home for a woodland fairy!
If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us then please contact the office to make an appointment to see us, we are more than happy to meet with you. Remember short messages can be passed on to the staff who are on the door each morning.
In Year 1 reading at home is vitally important for the children.
We expect the children to read out loud to an adult at least 5 times a week at home. Please sign or initial in the homework diary to confirm that this has been completed. Please remember that you have access to a wealth of Bug Club books to support this.
Choose 5-10 spellings from the list in the homework diary to practise each week. Should you require further words please speak to your child's class teacher.
Maths passports (Stage 1) are located in the homework diary-please practise a couple of the skills each week.
Children should have their homework folders in school every day. Homework diaries will be checked in school on Fridays.
We have three classes in Year 1:
Blue class, Green class and Aqua class
They will be supported and guided through this important year by:-
All working together to help the children to achieve their full potential and to make good progress.
We have been very happy to see so many of the children wearing their full correct school uniform and setting such a brilliant example for the rest of the school, thank you.
Please remember that children can wear boots to school but need shoes to change into.
PE will be on Wednesdays. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school every day and that all items of clothing are named.
We encourage all children to bring a water bottle to class, which they can refill at regular intervals during the day in order to keep themselves well hydrated. Please could you make sure that water bottles are labelled clearly with your child's full name.
Please remember to use My Maths at home to support your child's learning. Tasks will be set by teachers when appropriate to reinforce learning. General number activities can be accessed at any point.
Remember that as the weather gets chillier to ensure that children have appropriate clothing to work, and play outside.
