Term 4 update

Welcome back to year 1!

 Miss Yeeles, Mx Livingstone,  Miss Fox and Mrs Collins can't wait to see you all after what we hope was a fun filled Easter Break! We can't wait to hear all about it!

We had a fabulous Term 4 learning all about the Great Fire of London. At the end of term, we had our assembly to parents and we even recreated the fire to imagine what it was like!

 This Term, our topic is Legendary Britain. We are learning about St George's Day with our WOW day on Tuesday 23rd April, the story George and the Dragon by Chris Wormell and the story of the Bristol Giants later on this term.

Our Science topic is Plants which we will be exploring also on our trip close to the end of term ! (details to follow). 

We are really excited for the term ahead, and look forward to welcoming you on our phonics open morning and our singing assembly at the end of term!


Year 1 Term 5 Newsletter 


All year one children will take part in a phonics screening check In June. Please see the link below with more information on what the screening check looks like. If you have any questions please feel free to speak to Mrs Smart/Miss Widdess (Edinburgh class) who lead phonics across the school.                                               A parent guide to the Year one phonics screening check

Year 1 will have their PE lessons on Mondays and Wednesdays. 

For PE, children should get changed in school and wear shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms that are plain and dark in colour - dark blue, black or grey. They should not have large logos on. Every child is given one coloured PE t-shirt when they start the school; subsequent PE t-shirts need to be purchased. The colour of the t-shirt represents the colour of the House every child is placed in: Cheng Ho (green), Estervanico (yellow), Sir Francis Drake (blue) and Louise Boyd (red). 

Trainers are needed as footwear for PE and must also be a dark colour.


If you wish to contact the class teacher in regards to your child's learning, please do so on the class email addresses, these emails are monitored once a week during term time only. They are a useful way to share non-urgent but useful information that does not require an immediate response:

Mx Charlie Livingstone barcelona@shirehampton-jun.bristol.sch.uk

Miss Ella Yeeles paris@shirehampton-jun.bristol.sch.uk

For urgent matters either see the class teacher at the start or end of the school day or contact the school office.
