Welcome to Class 1's page!
Welcome back Class 1 and a special welcome to our new reception children! I hope you all had a wonderful summer holidays with family and friends.
At Hartland, we have an emphasis on cross-curricular learning and work as a team to provide a stimulating and fun education for all children. Starting the year off, our topic this half term will be ‘All About Me’. This is a great topic to begin with and links to the settling in process well. I am very excited to learn all about the children’s favourite hobbies, foods, books etc. For the Year Receptions, this will lead us into learning about ‘People who help us’. Year 1’s will be learning about the Royal Family.
I will be leaving Tuesday after school free for meetings with parents; please book with Donna or Sarah in the office.
Homework will be given out on Fridays to all children and must be handed in on Thursdays. Spellings will be given only to Year 1s (until after Christmas) and spelling tests for them will take place on Wednesdays. Please ensure your child has time to complete homework in order for them to practice what they have learnt that week. Children will also bring home 2 reading books every week. Please read with your child daily, even if it is only for a short time.
P.E for Class 1 will be on Monday mornings and Thursday afternoons. Please make sure P.E kits are left in school during term time.
I look forward to learning all about our exciting topics with you and having lots of fun along the way!
