Welcome to Year 1
Happy New Year! We hope you have enjoyed the break and look forward to working with you this term. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your kind words, cards and gifts we received at the end of last term.
We are especially excited about the term ahead and the curriculum we have planned. Our topic will be ‘London.’ We know lots of you have connections to London and /or have visited. The children have shown a lot of interest in this so we feel it will inspire and motivate them to achieve their best. Please refer to the attached curriculum map to find out a little more about what your children will be covering for this term.
Our time table has changed slightly, the day will begin at 8:50am when the door to our classroom will open. Please ensure your children arrives promptly as lessons begin at 9am. The school day finishes at 3:30pm. Our morning playtime has moved from 10:50 am to 10: 15 am it will remain at 15 minutes. There will be an afternoon playtime for Year 1 at around 2:20 pm again for 15 minutes. Lunch time will remain the same
We know you are used to us a little now but please feel free to speak to any of us about your children. We ask that you don’t wait to do so if you have any concerns? It is vitally important to us that your children are first and foremost happy at school.
Please ensure your child comes prepared for the day. We have PE every Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning. Please make sure that your children come with the appropriate full kit for every session. It can be so disruptive to everyone’s learning when children come without. We assume if your child is well enough to attend school, they are well enough to do PE, unless you tell us otherwise.
Just to remind you that now your child is in Year One they can but toast and a drink of juice at morning play. If your child would like this then they need to bring their money in at the beginning of the day. The price for toast is 10p and a small drink of juice is 20p. Do not feel you have to do this as we provide water throughout the day and fruit at morning play free of charge.
We will continue to send home work on Fridays to be returned to us the following Wednesday. Please remember that you can also support your child by reading with them every day. Please remind them to bring their reading folders to school every day. If they manage to read every day this for the half term then they will be rewarded with a treat during the last week of the term or the beginning of the next term. Please record when you have read with your child in their school diary.
As you can see we hope to show you all what we have done for the Spring term on Friday 29th March.
Thank you for your support,
Karen Yeoman- class teacher
