Sharing with your children ways to use technology safely is the key to happy and safe experiences when online.
 
Welcome to the Year 1 class page for Octopus class (Miss Williams), Otter class (Mrs Hunt) and Owl class (Mrs Taylor & Mrs Perry).
 
Welcome back for Term 3!
We have loved hearing about all of the lovely things you have been up to over the holidays.
This term, spellings and homework will continue each Wednesday - please remember to check your child's book bag. 
 
Can parents also ensure all children return with their P.E. kits so they are able to get changed for the weekly lessons.
 
This term we are looking at animals in Science, primary colours in Art, and direction in Geography. We will be studying the Little Red Hen in English, and will even make our own bread! We will continue with addition and subtraction in Maths before moving onto place value. .  
 
With the weather getting colder, and many children bringing in hats and gloves, please can you ensure that these have names in to avoid any confusion!

Reading - all children are expected to read at home at least three times per week. It is essential that you continue reading with your child to not only check their reading accuracy, but also that they have fully understood the story through discussion.

 

We would love to see as many of you as possible at our weekly reading morning! These are from 8.50-9.10 every Wednesday. You will be able to read your child's school book with them and record it in their reading diary. 

 

 
  
We are always looking for parent/carers to come into year 1 to listen to children read. If you can spare an hour or two weekly please let your child's teacher know.
 

P.E bags are needed in school - daps are not required. P.E. in Owl Class is on Mondays and Wednesdays. P.E. in Otter Class is Tuesdays and Thursdays and P.E. in Octopus Class is Tuesdays and Thursday. There are a few children who struggle to undress and re-dress themselves and we urge you to let your children dress themselves at home. Tights are a real struggle and on P.E. days socks might be an easier option!
