Sunday 5th September | 1 comment
We hope that you have all had a great holiday and are ready for an exciting year. We have been busy getting the classrooms ready and planning lots of fun lessons and visits.
1GK are also known as Hedgehog Class.
1B are also known as Rabbit Class.
Arriving at school and home time
The Year 1 doors open at 8.50am and school starts at 9.00am. Home time is 3.15pm. All the children arrive and leave using the same door, so please bear with us at home time. We will speed up once we begin to recognise all your faces!
Please make sure your child has washed their hands thoroughly before they enter school, using our outdoor sinks. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
What will we be learning this half term?
In our English lessons we will enjoy reading ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’ and ‘Kitchen Disco’.
In maths we will be learning about place value and addition and subtraction.
In our science lessons we will be visiting the farm. We will be ‘plant detectives’ and make some delicious vegetable soup! Yum!
As part of our history lessons we will be thinking about how we have changed. Please can your child bring a photograph, to school, of when they were a baby or toddler. It will be used in our history lessons and will go on our ‘Guess Who?’ displays. We can print them in school if you email them using the following addresses… [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]
In Year 1 the children participate in PE sessions twice a week. We will be doing PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school. If the weather is fine, we will do one of our PE sessions outside so please make sure that they have appropriate footwear. Please remember to label all their clothing, so that items don’t get lost!
Have a look at some photographs of your new classroom. Where would you like to play? (You can click on a photograph to make it bigger.)
We are looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday morning. You will need to look for your peg label in the corridor, put your book bag and coat on your peg, find your drawer to put your fruit in and put your named water bottle by the sink. Then you can sit on the carpet and look at a book.
