A warm welcome to our class page.
This term is going to be a very busy time for Year 1 as we focus on becoming independent and learn to build positive learning attitudes.
Our topic this half term is a science based topic where children will be learning about the human body, in particular our 5 senses, but it will include geography and history elements too where we will go on a local field trip looking at our local environment and also learning all about how much we have changed since being born. It would be appreciated if your child could bring a baby photograph into school (these will be copied so you can have the original back) so we can compare how the children have grown and developed.
Our Phonics, English and Maths lessons will be taught every morning and with emphasis being on 'doing our best'... my moto is 'it's ok to get things wrong, but it's not ok to not try'!
The children will need water bottles which can be filled up with fresh drinking water throughout the day. These will need to be taken home each evening to be washed and brought back the next day.
Book bags need to be in school every day and where possible children should be reading every night to a grown up.
PE kits need to be left in school until the next half term, this ensures the children will always be able to take part and gives them ownership of looking after their own property.
I am looking forward to a super year of learning and positivity.
If you have any concerns and need to speak to us please feel free to see us after school, our door is always open.
Thank you for your continual support.
Mrs Hulland & Miss Ryan
