Our teacher is Miss Atterbury; we are also supported brilliantly by Mrs Marles every day. Mrs Kandes and Miss Kee teach us on a Friday morning. Any of the teachers would be delighted to speak to you if you have any concerns, big or small.
Welcome back and Happy New Year! We are looking forward to another fantastic term in year 1. Our topic for the first half term will be Senses. We will be learning about the 5 senses and how we use them to navigate our world. In English, we will be looking at developing our non-fiction writing by learning about the life of Louis Braille. We will also be writing our own report about guide dogs and how they help visually impaired people. In maths, we will be continuing to develop our understanding of number, concentrating on addition and subtraction using a number of methods.
We have PE every Tuesday and Friday and will be following the ‘Leap into Life’ and ‘REAL PE’ programmes. We will look at how to stay healthy and learn the importance of warming up and cooling down.
The children will also be taking part in Wild Tribe sessions every Friday. This is a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn outdoor skills such as den building and fire lighting. Please ensure that the children have a warm waterproof coat and wellies in school to change into on wet days.
