Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and we wish you a Happy New Year.
We have already settled quickly back into our routines and are really enjoying Arts Week to kick off the new term. We will then be diving into our new theme of ‘The Lion Inside’. This is all about being brave and inspiring. Within this, we will be looking at Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole and how they changed the face of nursing. Please look on the school website, on the Year 1 page, for the half term curriculum overview.
Homework and Reading Thank you to the children who complete their weekly homework. We enjoy celebrating homework in our class. It is noticeable that children who regularly carry out homework tasks are transferring their knowledge to their class work. We will continue to set homework on a Friday, to be completed by 5pm, the following Thursday. Please also remember to write on the home reading records when your child reads at home.
Library Our Library day in year 1 is Thursday, so please return your school library book on this day ready to be changed.
After February half term our learning theme will be ‘Poles Apart’ and our curriculum overview will be available on the school website.
