Welcome to Year 1!
We hope you all had a wonderful Summer. It was great to welcome the children back today and they are enjoying getting to know their new classmates, teachers and classrooms. Over the next two and a half weeks, we will be basing our learning activities on 'The Rainbow Fish' by Marcus Pfister. This will form the focus of our new Enquiry Curriculum topic: 'Who am I?' We will be learning about our Community, the importance of rules and how we are all special and unique.
This term Y1 will have PE on Wednesdays and Fridays. Please send your child into school wearing their PE kits on those days (black shorts/bottoms, white or red t-shirt, trainers or daps).
We will also be taking part in our first block of Forest School sessions, starting next week.
Class 4 will be on Tuesday 6th, 13th and 20th September.
Class 3 will be on Thursday 8th, 15th and 22nd September.
For these sessions, please send children into school wearing old clothes (long sleeves and trousers) and bring wellies and waterproofs in a named bag.
