Welcome to Year 1
Summer 1 Term 2019
Welcome to our Year 1 newsletter
Welcome back, we hope you have had a lovely Easter! Our new topic this term is ‘How does your garden grow?’ This topic is science based with lots of planting and investigating of the school grounds.
Keep an eye on our Year 1 notice board (by the front entrance), as this is where we will provide you with additional information over the year. On this, we will also keep you updated with what we are learning each week in English and Mathematics.
Reading: Please continue to hear your children read at a home, a small amount of time reading at home daily will make a big difference to the children’s progress.
PE Days: Monday and Tuesday for both classes.
We will continue to be working alongside Planet Education (Beech 1st half of the term and Oak 2nd) on Tuesdays.
Please ensure that your child’s PE kit is clearly marked with their name.
If children have longer hair, please make sure they have this tied back on P.E days or provide them with hair bands to allow this to happen. If your child has pierced ears, please also remove these on P.E days.
Please could your child have tracksuit in their PE bag, as we will endeavour to go outside each week.
Library - Friday afternoon
Please note; we will only be able to issue a new book if the previous one has been returned. A charge of £5.00 is made for lost books.
Ms Dorset will be with us in Beech class until July. Ms Dorset is on her final teaching practice as part of her teacher training at Winchester University.
There are many ways to support your child's learning at home. This can be in the form of practising their spellings, reading, extra maths activities and the use of 'Espresso' and Purple Mash. In order to access the websites, the children have usernames and logins which can be found in their 'Home School Books'.
Open Door Policy:
We hope that if you have any worries or concerns about your child that you feel we need to know about, you will come and speak to us as soon as it is convenient for you or make an appointment for a chat. We are always happy to see if we can help.
Many thanks for your continued support from the Year 1 Team.
Mrs Hendry, Mrs Fowler, Mrs Wilcox, Mrs Garrett and Mrs Ujszasi-Evans
