Welcome to Year 1
Spring 2 Term 2019
Welcome to our Year 1 newsletter
Our new topic this term is ‘Who’s who?’ This topic is science based with lots of investigations and finding out through first-hand experience. We will be looking at a selection of famous people from different areas – artists, inventor, sports personality and author. We will be designing and making sandwiches and making collages in art.
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. In here, 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: Tuesday and Thursday 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.
Book Week is the week beginning the 4th March, author Chitra Soundar will be visiting school. More details will be included in a separate letter.
Parents Evenings are on the 26th & 27th March. Please book an appointment online.
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 and we would like to make the transition from Reception to Year 1 as easy as possible.
Many thanks for your continued support from the Year 1 Team.
Mrs Hendry, Mrs Fowler, Mrs Wilcox, Mrs Garrett and Mrs Ujszasi-Evans
