Year 1 - Autumn Term (first half)
Our theme for this half term is 'Weather, Witham and Wings'. Below you will find an overview of the learning which will be covered. We love it when the children discuss their learning with you and have experiences at home which link with the themes we are looking at in class.
The children are really enjoying their PE lessons and Mr Fyfe is very impressed with their behaviour and enthusiasm. There are still a few children in our class who do not have the full PE kit that is required. Please do ensure that you have sent in ALL the PE kit listed below as soon as possible. The weather will change soon, but this will not affect our PE lessons. We do still go outside to do PE despite it being muddy! Trainers are essential for outdoor PE, and we use plimsoles for indoor PE or if your child's school shoes get wet during the day.
PE Kit list:
Please ensure that all items are clearly labelled and brought to school in a drawstring PE bag.
PE days: Monday and Friday
Children should have their PE kit at school every day
Please also ensure that earrings are not worn to school on PE days, and that (as per the school rules) hair is tied back and is off the shoulders.
Each child will receive a copy of our Year 1 'Homework Helper'. This booklet is NOT a homework book, but has lists and activities which you can use particularly in the event of a lock down or if you & your family are required to quarantine/ self-isolate. Below you will find copies of most of the pages in the 'Homework Helper' (HH) so that you can download and print them if you need additional copies. From time to time, I will ask your child to use their HH to practise or learn spellings, words, maths facts. Please ensure that this booklet it kept in your child's book bag as we do sometimes refer to them and use them in school.
Dear Parents and Children,
I am looking forward to seeing you in September. Mrs Kemp and I have been working hard to make sure that our classroom is ready and full of lots of interesting and exciting things for all of you. We hope you have a wonderful summer holiday!
Mrs Eardley and Mrs Kemp
