Welcome to Year 1
I am so excited to get to know all of you!
PE Days are Monday and Wednesday. The children will need to come into school in their PE kits on those days.
Children should make sure that they bring a water bottle in every day.
Your children will be bringing home a reading book appropriate to their Phonics level soon. This is to practice their decoding skills but we would encourage they read or are read to daily. This will broaden their vocabulary and enrich their experiences. They can read anything from comics to a bedtime story.
This half term we will focus on settling the children into Key Stage 1 to make the transition from Reception as smooth as possible. Our Topic is Healthy Us and we will be learning about keeping our bodies and minds healthy. We will also be learning about our senses, using our taste and smell in particular, when we make a healthy snack.
We will be learning about how shopping has changed since World War II and would be grateful of grandparents who would be willing to talk to the children about their experiences.
