Welcome to 1W’s Class Page
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 and Design, we will be creating a teddy museum using different mediums and the children will be designing and making their own glove 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 If your child requires an inhaler, or any other medicine, please make sure it has been returned to school, and is not out of date.
Every Monday, your child will bring one reading book home. This book will be wiped down before being put into your child's book bag. This reading book must be kept at home and returned back to school on Thursday. This gives some time for your child to read with you and ideally finish their book. Returned books will go into quarantine for 72 hours to ensure they are safe to be placed back into our school library on the following Monday. We will not be changing books on any other days during the week so your child will only need to bring their book bag to school on Mondays and Thursdays. Your child will also bring a Reading Record book home. This may be returned to school on Mondays and Thursdays to communicate about your child's reading at home. In the current situation, this Reading Record is only for use at home. Your child will continue to read from separate reading books whilst in school.
Jumpers, Cardigans and Water Bottles
Please remember to clearly label all jumpers and cardigans so we can return them to the correct owner at the end of each school day. Please ensure your child brings a water bottle to school each day. Your child's bottle should contain only water.
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 will be set online every Monday from 4.30pm. The children will have a week to complete their set task. Your child's login details can be found inside their Reading Record book. Please keep a note of these 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.
Many thanks for all your support
