Welcome to 1W’s Class Page
We hope you have all had a lovely summer break and we are very much looking forward to a fantastic year with you and your children. It is lovely to be back at school and I am enjoying getting to know all the children in 1W. 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. If you have any queries or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
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, we will be creating a teddy museum using different mediums and the children will be designing and making their own glove puppet in Design and Technology lessons!
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 If your child requires an inhaler, or any other medicine, please make sure it has been returned to school, and is not out of date.
The children will receive two reading books every Monday. 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, along with any comments you wish to add. When
supporting your child’s reading, please spend time discussing the setting,
characters and key words from the story to further their understanding of the
text. We will change your child’s reading books the following Monday, if you
have noted down that both books are completed.
Please try to send your child’s book bag into school each day if you can, as this
will enable us to note in their Reading Record when they have read with a
member of our Year 1 team.
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 and that it does not contain any nuts.
To be updated soon.
Year 1 have P.E. every Wednesday. Your child may wear their P.E. kit to school,
along with their school cardigan or jumper. For your child’s safety, and the
safety of others, please ensure that your child is not wearing any jewellery, and
earrings should either be removed or covered with plasters upon arrival at
On Thursday 16th September, our school celebrated and reflected upon our Mission Statement. In Year One, we took part in lovely activities which focussed on how we can serve and show love and care to others, and follow in the footsteps of Jesus. We enjoyed Collective Worship in the sunshine, role play, art work and craft activities.
Faithfully following in the footsteps of Jesus, we serve, love and learn together, inspiring each other to excellence.
