Next week we are going to read ‘Nothing’ by Mick Inkpen. The story is about a special soft toy that has been left in an attic for so long that he has forgotten his own name – he even thinks he is called ‘Nothing’. The little toy has an amazing adventure in the big wide world and is eventually reunited with his owner.
On Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th September the children will be thinking about their own special toys. Please send a special soft toy to school with your child. Thank you.

We have had a very busy week! All the children have settled in really well and are getting used to the routines of Year 1. They have been exploring their new classrooms and outdoor area. We have sent home a newsletter and we hope this helps answer questions about PE kit and reading books. Miss Sedman has had a great week and would like to thank all the children and parents for making her feel so welcome at Farfield.
In literacy all the children wrote in their books with lined paper for the first time! They all wrote independently about their holiday and we will be assessing this work to give us an on entry level for your child. They all tried very hard to remember to use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. We have also been to the school library and chosen a book – please share this with your child. We will change our library books every Friday.
The children have been busy creating bees to go in each room and they are all in a colour bee hive. Can your child remember which hive they are in?
In assembly Mrs Fisher shared a book called ‘Only one you’ – this is a lovely story all about being special and individual. The characters are all fish and all the children in the North building are making their own unique fish to go on a display in our dining hall. It is going to look super.
We will be doing PE next week so please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school.
Have a lovely weekend.

We have been busy planning lots of fun activities for this half term and we’ve displayed them on a learning hive so you can see what we will be doing. (Click on the hive to make it bigger) The bee contains all our ethos statements for the half term and they are all based on ‘new beginnings’. It is going to be an exciting and busy half term!
