Welcome to The Homepage for Year 1B
This term we will be looking at our new topic 'Great Explorers'.
We will be learning about the history of different explorers including; Christopher Columbus, Neil Armstrong and Scott of Antarctic.
We will be linking our English sessions to this topic and writing our own information books.
After half term we will be becoming explorers ourselves and exploring and finding out all about our locality and finding out about Southport and Churchtown.
Children will be given 3 reading books at a time. Please try to read each day with your child, even if it is only a couple of pages, and note this down in their reading record. The children will be given a specific day of the week and their books will be changed on that day if they have been completed and their reading record signed.
During and after completion of the book, please spend time discussing the setting, characters and key words from the story to further your child's understanding of the text.
Children are asked to bring their books into school on a daily basis as this will enable me to write a comment in their Reading Diary when they have taken part in either Guided or Individual reading.
Our class P.E lessons will take place on a Tuesday and a Wednesday. Please ensure your child has their full, named P.E kit in class on these days.
Please ensure that all items of uniform are named so that if they are left they can be returned to their correct owners.
Due to the changeable weather please ensure that suitable clothing is brought to school including a waterproof coat.
