Hello and Welcome to Class 1
(Reception and Year 1)
Hello and a Happy New Year to all children, parents and carers!
We hope that you are all rested after a wonderful holiday and looking forward to the adventures that we will be having in Class 1 this term !
This term we are being " explorers " and will be finding out about Winter,Space and Journeys.
All children as part of enrichment on Wednesdays will have Dance and French.
Thursday's will still be PE. Can you please make sure that your child comes with the correct P.E kit as we have no spare kit to lend.
Year 1 children will still have fluency facts sent home on a weekly basis . These will be assessed on a Friday when certificates will be awarded.
Year 1 children also have phonics spellings to learn each week, which are tested on a Friday.
Please continue to read with your child at least four times per week. The children enjoy finding out if they are " Super Readers " on a Monday !
As always, if you have any concerns, please come and see us. We endeavour to deal with issues as quickly as we can, although sometimes, due to staff commitments, this might not always be possible.
Mrs Richardson, Mrs Mills and Mrs Petchell
We have had a wonderful start to the Autumn term and enjoyed learning about our topic "What do I know about me?" We listened well to our visitors who were Beth (an optometrist) Mr Bloor (works with Guide Dogs) and Doctor Paine (spoke to us about our brain).
Maths Fun Fluency Facts - well done to all the children. They have worked so hard each week improving their fact scores and achieving their certificates.
Please continue to practise your child's spellings or phoneme flashcards weekly and to listen to your child read at least four times a week.
Please note Wednesday's enrichment lessons when we return to school after the half term holiday will be French and Dance. Your child will need their PE kit for the dance session.
Have a wonderful half term holiday. We look forward to meeting you on Monday 5th November for Parent Consultation afternoon. Please enjoy looking at your child's work and around their classroom.
This term our PE day is a Thursday. Please can all children have their PE kits in school at all times.
Please remember if you have questions or concerns that you would like to talk to us about, do come and see us and we will endeavour to help. If we are unable to speak with you immediately, we will arrange a mutually convenient time.
Thank you, Mrs Richardson and Mrs Mills
Our new topic will be 'Castles'.
