Stationery

In order to minimise multiple use of equipment, it would be great if you could  provide your child with a pencil case containing the following equipment: a ruler, glue stick, HB pencil, a pencil sharpener and a set of colouring pencils. It would be extremely helpful if the pencil case was relatively small as space on tables and in trays is limited. We will provide this equipment where required. 

 

P.E.

Children in Class 1 will need their P.E. kits on Wednesday and Thursday in line with our Covid 19 Risk Assessment. In order to reduce increased congestion when changing, children are invited to come to school this day in their P.E. kits. P.E. kits should  consist of jogging bottoms, shorts, a house-coloured t-shirt, jumper and trainers. 

 

Brilliant Beginning - Off to the Seaside!

Our Brilliant Beginning will be on Friday 30th April 2021. Children are welcome to come to school in non-school uniform. We will spend the day building our own aquariums from a shoe box!

 

Spelling

Every Monday, your child will be taught a new spelling rule to practise during the week. Please spend time at home practising these spelling rules.

English

In Year 1, children learn to orally retell different types of texts using story maps and actions. We ask all parents to support children with learning these texts at home orally, so that children can use them to create their own versions. The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 1. Please download the texts and story maps and practise retelling them. Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!

The topic for Autumn One was called 'Up Our Street', which linked our Science and Geography lessons together. We went on a journey with Barnaby Bear, to find him the perfect place to build his new home. The children learnt about the four seasons, the key features of our school and village and will discovered the mini beasts that live on the school grounds. For the Brilliant Beginning, the children wore non uniform and built rain gauges and wind socks to record the weather throughout the year. Rain collected will be recorded each term. 

 

Our topic for Autumn Two was Toys. Children were comparing modern day toys with toys from the Victorian Era. They used words and phases to relate to the different eras and discovered different ways that they could find out more about their past. For our Brilliant Beginning on Friday 13th November, the children played with some Victorian toys while talking about the modern toys they had at home. 

In Spring One, the children went on a journey with the Mr Men characters and leant all about the Scottish Isle of Coll. They identified the key features of an island, studied maps and compared the Isle of Coll to Sway. For our Brilliant Beginning, the children came to come to school dressed as a Mr Men or a Little Miss character while they spent the day decorating biscuits, writing amazing stories and doing lots of creative activities. We had a great day!

This Summer, the children will be going on a journey with Barnaby Bear to learn about physical and human features and will explore how the seaside has changed since the Victorian Era. For their Brilliant Beginning on Friday 30th April 2021, the children will be making aquariums out of shoe boxes. Please bring any spare shoe boxes that you have into school.

Class Country

Our class country is France. Over the year, we will find out what it is like to live in France, learn about famous French monuments and learn some French words and phrases.

 

Have you ever been on holiday to France? Can you speak any French?
