We hope you have all had a fantastic half term!
We are really looking forward to seeing all of the children's fresh faces on Monday morning, ready to start back. We hope they are excited too!
This half term our Topic is, 'Let's Celebrate.' This is all about different festivals, symbols and religions. We will learn about Remembrance Day, Diwali and Christmas. We will focus our work around the book Malala's Magic Pencil written by Malala Yousafzai.
In Year One, Forest School will be every Tuesday afternoon. Please send appropriate clothing for the outdoors: long sleeves and trousers, waterproofs and wellington boots.
We will have PE every Thursday afternoon so please send appropriate PE clothes for indoor PE. We work barefoot in the hall so pumps are not necessary. In the Summer term, we will have PE outside so trainers will be necessary then.
School reading books will be changed every Monday and Thursday. Mrs Holmes will only change books that have been finished. Please send your child's reading book everyday so we can listen to them read as much as possible.
Homework will be sent home every Friday. There is spelling practise and Maths work. We will have a spelling test every Friday morning.
We are going to use postcards to recognise positive behaviour of children who are showing the school values: kind, accepting, fair, honest and respectful. Postcards will be sent home to reward children for their hard work and brilliant behaviour.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Miss Matthews and Mrs Holmes.
