Welcome to 1CC!
Welcome back everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic summer holiday and are refreshed and ready for lots of fun filled activities and learning this half term!
What are we learning about?
Our topic this half term is 'What is our local area like?' and we will be reading different versions of the classic tale 'Little Red Riding Hood'. We will be writing instructions, labels and captions and we will even become authors and write our very own version of Little Red Riding Hood. We will also be venturing out of our school grounds to see what Little Red Riding Hood would like or even not like about our local environment. Do you think she would like to play on our climbing frame or run through our forest? Would she like to go on a canal boat?
We will be looking at different birds and plants and even designing and making our own bird feeders! So get your thinking caps on!
Art and Design Technology
We will be being artists and painting own pictures of Little Red Riding Hood, making masks, sketching and experimenting with leaf prints. I cannot wait to see what the children are going to produce!
PE day is Friday and we ask for your child to wear the correct PE Kit (white T-shirt, blue shorts and black pumps) and could you please label it clearly. We will send PE Kits home each half term so they can be washed and returned after the holidays for the next half term.
Reading book and Reading record
Please can I remind you that your child's reading book needs to be in school every day, so if we have the opportunity, we can listen to your child read throughout the week. Being able to read is a very important skill and we would appreciate it if you could listen to your child read at home. Thank you.
Homework is given out Fridays and this half term it will be a list of spellings for your child to learn at home over the week. They will be tested Friday mornings on their spellings and then a new set of spellings will be given out and stuck in their homework books for the next week. Please make your child hands their homework in every Wednesday.
Please feel free to get in touch at any time. Mrs Jackson is available to speak to you on the door in the mornings and I am available at the end of the school day.
Miss Conner and Mrs Jackson J
