Welcome to Class 1's page!
Welcome back Class 1!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas celebrating with family and friends.
This term, the Year Reception topic will be ‘Water’. This will include a range of learning experiences. We are going to have a fantastic Art day to kick start the term and get us excited about our new topic. We will also be linking our topic to Maths, looking at Number and also measurements and capacity. During the spring term, Year 1 will have a Geography focus, learning all about the surrounding area, which will include Hartland and Clovelly.
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 now given to both Year One and Year Reception. A spelling quiz will take place on Thursdays. 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. Reading is extremely important in Class 1 and is a huge focus. We are asking for children to read regularly and we have encouraged this by creating the school ‘Reading Raffle’.
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 this spring term and learning all about our new topics!
