Welcome to Year 1!
Together Everyone Achieves More
TOGETHER, as a team, we will ensure that EVERYONE in our school is safe, happy and healthy.
We will strive to make our school a place where each child ACHIEVES their potential, develops their skills and deepens their knowledge and understanding of this ever-changing world.
The MORE we work together as a community, the closer we will be to our vision of prosperous futures for every child we nurture.
For pupils to determine their own futures by getting the very best start in life.
Welcome back everyone! We hope you all had a great holiday and are refreshed and ready for lots of learning and fun filled activities this half term!
Our topic this half term is ‘Why are Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong brave people?’ and we will be reading the books ‘Man on the moon’ and ‘Pirate Cruncher’. We will be writing about what it would be like to be on the moon and a set of instructions so we can find the treasure hidden on our treasure maps. So lots of fun ahead! Will we be able to find all the treasure?
In Science we will be looking at seasonal changes including Summer and also at the activities we do now and the clothing we wear at this time of the year.
In Art and DT we will be learning about the artist Miles Donovan and designing and making our own outer space pictures. So get your thinking caps on – what does your spaceship need so that it can get to space?
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 additionally throughout the week. Reading is important and if you have the time we would appreciate it if you could listen to your child read at home. Thank you.
PE day is Tuesday 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.
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 to the children at the end of the day for the next week and they will also be posted on dojo. Please make sure they learn these spellings as they are part of the Year 1 curriculum.
Please feel free to get in touch at any time. Mrs Suddons and Mrs Woolley are available to speak to you on the door in the mornings and we are always available at the end of the school day.
