Year 1, Term 1 September 2018
Welcome to Year 1. I hope you all had a relaxing summer.
This term our theme is ‘Superheroes’ and this will be the focus for a lot of our learning.
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- real life heroes-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. Please record this in the new reading record books and give out the special stickers at the right time. In the class, we will soon introduce Group Reading where a group of children read the same book with an adult.
Mrs. Hervin will 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.
