          Spring Term 1  

 

Welcome back and Happy New Year! The children have all returned from the Christmas break looking very smart in their school uniforms and eager to continue their learning journeys!

 

Topic - Toys in the past

This half term's topic is 'Toys in the past'.  The children will be investigating the types of toys that children played with in Victorian times. These 'olden day' toys will then be compared to the ones we play with nowadays.  The children will also have the opportunity to design and create their very own toy car.

 

P.E - Tuesday

P.E will continue to take place on a Tuesday. Please make sure that your child has a P.E kit in school - sweatshirt, tracksuit bottoms & trainers.

 

Reading books

Reading books will be changed 2/3 times a week.  Please make sure that a comment is written in your child's book log regarding their reading.  If a new book is needed, please write this down in the log.

 

Many thanks

Miss Hobson and Mrs Jaber

               

 

                                 Autumn Term 2

 

Welcome back! We have an exciting half term ahead! Thank you to everyone who came along to Parents’ evening. It was great to meet so many of you to discuss how your child is getting on at school and how we can work together the best to support their learning so that they can continue making progress throughout Year 1.

All the Y1 classes will have a fantastic Christmas treat! We are going to watch ‘Sleeping Beauty’ in City Variety on 15th December. The pantomime is very engaging and I’m sure everyone will have a lovely time. A letter will be sent home about the trip shortly.

Topic – Crazy climates

 The children will be learning about hibernating animals, the days of the week and how the weather and nature change in the different seasons. We will talk about the weather in Africa and compare it to Antarctica.

 PE

Our PE days will continue to be on Tuesdays. With the cold weather approaching, we would advise jogging bottoms, a sweatshirt and trainers for outdoor PE lessons. 

Reading books

 Reading books will be sent home twice a week, please keep checking your child’s book bag. Could you make sure that you send the books back with a note about your child’s reading. Please remember that we are unable to change books without a note.

 

Many thanks

Mrs Jaber and Miss Hobson

 

 

 

 

 

Newsletter Autumn 1

 

Welcome to Y1 in Mrs Jaber’s and Miss Hobson’s class. I hope you all had a nice holiday. It was lovely to get to know the children in June and July during transition times. I was really impressed with the children’s good behaviour and I’m looking forward to teaching them this year.

Back in the first week through different fun activities we will be talking about and practising our classroom rules such as sitting quietly on the carpet, putting our hands up, using kind language, listening to each other carefully and taking turns in talking.

Numeracy

We will count in ones forwards and backwards, find one more or one less than a given number using mathematical language such as equal to, more than, less than,( fewer) most and least. Counters, pictures of everyday objects, number lines, hundred squares will help the children with their counting and understanding of place value.

Topic

Our topic this half term is ‘Royals and Rebels’. Through role play, in our fantastic classroom castle the children can pretend to be a king or a queen and wear their own crowns. We will learn about the Royal family and the Buckingham palace. The pupils will make a shopping list for a Royal wedding party, design a dress for the queen and make their own crowns.

P.E.

Our  P.E. lessons will be on Tuesday-please make sure your child has their P.E. kit in school. ( White P.E. top and black shorts)

Please provide your child with a water bottle and a pair of pumps.

 

Thank you

Mrs Jaber and Miss Hobson
