Welcome to 1S’ Class Page
It is lovely to be back at school and I am enjoying getting to know all the children in 1S. I have been amazed at how quickly they are settling into the new routines. They really are a credit to you!
This half term we are working hard to ensure the children feel safe, happy and ready to work. As you are aware, we are adjusting to new routines and ways of working and we will keep you regularly updated of any changes.
Our first topic this year is Toys and Teddies. In History, we will use different sources to find out how toys have changed through time. The children will also compare the types of toys they played with as a baby with those they play with now. In Art and Design, we will be creating a teddy museum using different mediums and the children will be designing and making their own puppet!
If your child has a medical condition that staff need to know about, please inform school as soon as possible. If your child requires an inhaler, or any other medicine, please make sure it has been returned to school, and is not out of date.
Children are taking home one book to read at home each week, on Monday. It will be wiped down before being put in children’s book bags. Please keep your child’s book at home until Thursday. This gives some time for your child to read with you and ideally finish their book before bringing it back to school on Thursday morning. Books will then be placed in a box for 72 hours to ensure they are safe to be returned to our school library on the following Monday. We will not be changing books on other days so children will only need their book bag on Mondays and Thursdays.
Jumpers, Cardigans and Water Bottles
Please remember to clearly label all jumpers and cardigans and ensure your child brings a water bottle to school each day.
Thank you so much for the prompt slip returns and payments. It is very much appreciated. Children receive a fruit snack in the morning break and in the afternoon, we provide a variety of healthy snacks throughout the week and a treat on Friday.
If you have chosen not to participate in the snack scheme and wish to provide a snack instead please ensure that it is a healthy food choice such as fruit or a cereal bar.
Homework is set online weekly, on Mondays and it is to be completed by Friday. Your child's login details will be in their Reading Record book. Please make a note of them, to keep at home.
This half term, P.E. sessions will take place each Tuesday. Children are asked to come into school wearing their P.E. clothes with a school jumper or cardigan and appropriate footwear.
If you have any queries or concerns, please feel free to come and speak to me.
Thank you for all your support,
