Welcome to Class 1's page!
Welcome back Class 1!
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.
This term is all about settling into school life. We are starting off the year with our topic, ‘Do you want to be friends?’ This is a great chance for the children to engage in activities with their friends and to meet new friends too. We will also be learning about school routines and ‘People who help us at school’. I look forward to learning about each other and our likes and dislikes. Year 1 will be carrying out the same topic but with a focus on science particularly. They will also complete work linked to all other areas of the curriculum.
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 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.
P.E in Class 1 will be on Monday mornings and Thursday afternoons. Please ensure P.E kits are left in school during term time. The children will also be taking part in the ‘daily mile’. This will be a fantastic start to each day and will help to wake our brains up for the day ahead!
I am looking forward to this new term and learning about our exciting new topics. We will have lots of fun along the way!
