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.
We would like to thank you for all your support with your child’s learning at home last term as it makes a huge difference to your child’s confidence and progress. We look forward to working with you in the spring term.
During this term, we will continue to send home spellings for the children to learn. Please ensure that your child uses their phonic knowledge to segment and blend these words.
Your child will also continue to receive weekly homework linked to our theme, the mathematics we are learning and our English work. We will continue to send all ‘home learning’ via Teams. The children enjoy seeing their homework when we share it on the ‘Big Screen’ (Interactive Whiteboard).
Our Library day in year 1 is Tuesday, so please return your school library book on this day ready to be changed.
Year 1 P.E. days
Our PE days will continue to be on a Wednesday and a Friday for all classes.
Please could we remind you, for health and safety reasons, longer hair should be tied back and earrings are removed or taped over on those days.
