Summer Term in Year 1
After half term, the children will become nature detectives! We have lots of fun activities planned for the first week back including a nature walk around the school grounds, using things from nature to make art, and writing our own nature poems. In maths, we will be introducing the concept of time. The children will have the opportunity to play teachers with their own mini clocks! Below is our overview for week 1 of the term.
As always, if you need to contact us, please use our class email addresses. Emails will be responded to during the first week back at school.
Have a wonderful half term!
From The Year 1 Team :)
Please drop off your child promptly at 8.40am at the school gates (at Reception). You will be greeted by Miss Harris and other members of staff who will guide your children to the correct classrooms.
Home time is at 2.55pm. The children will be taken to the same gate you brought them to in the morning.
Please remember your child will need a water bottle everyday as the water fountains will not be in use.
Fruit/vegetable snack is provided by school. You are welcome to provide your child with a fruit/vegetable snack from home as well.
Your child will need a coat everyday as we will be going outside for learning and playtime every day.
Your child should arrive in a pair of black school shoes/trainers for outdoors. To support their independence, please make sure they have velcro on them or that they can easily be taken on and off. They also need a pair of indoor shoes like plimsolls or slippers. These can be any colour. Please bring them in a carrier bag so they can be kept easily in your child's locker. It would really help us if you could encourage your child to practice taking their outdoor shoes off and their indoor shoes on over the weekend. This will really help thank you!
No P.E. kits will be needed as we will not be getting changed for P.E.
Lunches - please provide your child with a lunch box unless you have ordered/are entitled to hot lunches. Please discuss with your child the lunches that you are ordering to check that they like them and will eat them!
Please don't let your child bring unnecessary objects to school. This is to ensure the least amount of contact between home and school.
Children will be given books every week to take home in their book bag to read with you at home. We will change your child's books as and when we read with them during the week. If you would like extra books for your child to bring home, please just ask.
If you need to share any general information or have any queries please feel free to email us at the addresses below:
