Year 1, Term 1
Welcome to Year 1. I hope you all had a relaxing summer.
This term we will be using the ‘Funnybones’ stories by Janet and Allan Ahlberg as the stimulus for our English and Science.
In Science, we will be learning about parts of our body, our senses and how to stay healthy.
Towards the end of the term, we will be observing and describing the signs of Autumn and comparing it to other seasons.
In History, we will learn about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole and will be comparing them to nurses that work in our hospitals now.
We will continue to focus on reading so please carry on hearing your child at home and reading to them as well. In the class, we will soon introduce Guided Reading where a group of children read the same book with an adult.
Mrs. Hervin will still be teaching RE on Monday afternoons and she will be telling the children stories about the importance of Harvest..
Mr. Graham will take PE on Monday- an outdoor session when possible, so the children will need trainers and an outdoor kit- and I will teach indoor PE on Tuesday.
Snack: we will provide the children with a snack in the morning but we know that some children still prefer to bring their own.
We have been very impressed with the way that the children have settled into Year 1 and we hope that this is a sign of wonderful things to come!
A final reminder: please could all clothes be named so that we can return them to their owners?
As always, if you have any concerns just pop in and see us or find us on the playground in the morning.
Jane Bennington and Erica Street-Poulsen
