We are year 1. Miss Whitney and Mrs Jones work here.
Our topic this term is “Out and About!" We will be learning about our community, transport, homes and the people who live and work here. We will also be visiting to see how homes and shopping have changed over the years.
We will also be working hard on our Read, Write Inc skills
and practising our speedy maths with Big Maths every day.

Dinner money is due on Tuesdays and costs £2.40 per day.
We love to be smart please try and wear your uniform every day.
Please can you ensure that ALL items of clothing are clearly marked with your child's name.
PE is on Thursday and your child will need to bring a PE kit. Your child will need shorts, t-shirt and trainers in a bag with their name on the labels. You may leave the named bag in school as we have plenty of room on pegs and we will return them at half term.
Your child will be given a reading day. Please support them by reading every day for a few minutes.
Return your child's book and reading record to school on their day.
Your child will be given a new book on the same day, so that you can keep the book at home for a whole week to practise.
Homework comes home on a Friday to be returned the following Friday. Your child will be given homework to complete during a week. Our homework books are "learn about books" and are designed to encourage the children to talk about their learning in school and be creative about how they present their homework. Sometimes, the task will support the children with finding out about something they will work on in class.
We will also be exploring the outdoors on a regular basis, so your child will need a pair of wellington boots in school, clearly marked with their name.
If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact us!
