Welcome to Class 1's page!
Welcome back Class 1!
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter holidays with family and friends.
This term, our topic will be ‘Explorers and Dinosaurs’. Year 1 will be focussing on Explorers and Year Reception will focus on Dinosaurs. We will be linking our topics to Literacy and Maths. Both Year groups will work together for specific parts of the topic. With thoughtful planning, this term is full of fantastic learning experiences and fun activities to take part in.
Carrying on from last term, I will be leaving Wednesday 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 Wednesdays. 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. kit must be in school at all times during the week.
I am looking forward to the new term ahead of us and the exciting times ahead.
