Term 1 update
Hello to all of our Year 1 children and families.
Welcome to year 1!
Mrs Jackson and Miss Yeeles, Miss Fox and Mrs Collins cant wait to see you and welcome you all to year 1 after what we hope was a fun filled summer holiday with time for some rest and relaxation!
Term 1 will be another super busy term full of amazing learning. Our children have started the term well settling in well with so much resilience and curiosity, it has been brilliant to watch! Thank you as always to all families for the continued support, we look forward to seeing you at our phonics open morning later this term. The children always love sharing these experiences with you.
This Term, the children are enjoying learning 'Kassim and the greedy pirate', and writing their own imaginative versions. The children will be learning about maps, where we live and counting in maths, as well as investigating all about materials.
Year 1 are also brilliant geographers, learning all about our wonderful world! They have so far enjoyed looking at maps and atlases, researching different flags of the UK and finding out more about the features of a town and the countryside.
Year 1 will have their PE lessons on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
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:
Mrs Emma Jackson firstname.lastname@example.org
Miss Ella Yeeles email@example.com
For urgent matters either see the class teacher at the start or end of the school day or contact the school office.
