Miss Mills, Mr Lilley, Mrs Hitchman and Mrs Broomes welcome you to the Year 1 page! Here you will find useful information and links for homework, school projects, events and other exciting things that are happening in our year group this year.
PE lessons will take place on a Monday afternoon and Thursday afternoon. Monday afternoon lessons will take place outside, so it is important that your child has jogging bottoms, trainers and a jacket in school as we are now in Autumn. Thursday afternoon lessons will be inside, so PE pumps, shorts and t-shirts are expected to be worn for these. May we remind you that earrings and jewellery must not be worn in school on the days when PE lessons take place. Please unsure that any earrings are taken out prior to your child coming into school on these days.
Reading books will be sent home weekly on a Friday. They need to be brought back into school by Thursday at the latest so that the children's RWI teacher has time to change them ready for the weekend.
More information can be found in our transition booklet below.
Summer Term Topic
Paws, Claws & Whiskers
Our topic for the Summer Term is called 'Paws, Claws & Whiskers'. We are going to discover that animals come in all shapes and sizes! Meeting an animal expert will allow us to ask and answer questions, share information about the pets we have at home and write animal information booklets. We will study animal artwork, draw detailed animal pictures to capture their special features and make collages, sculptures and prints. Famous animal fables will make us laugh and we will spot similarities and differences between animals, focusing also on what different habitats they live in around the world. Animals are amazing! Why not take photos of a favourite pet together and describe their habits, likes and dislikes? You could also put bird food in the garden and visit a local park or nature reserve for a spot of bird watching. Make a note of their markings and features then use a simple spotting book or app to identify different species. Alternatively, visiting the local pet shop or petting zoo would allow you to observe a wide range of different animals.
