Welcome to a brand new school year and welcome to Year 1!
For the first half term we will be focusing on settling into Year 1 and our theme will be 'Castles'. In English we will be building on our phonic knowledge and handwriting skills, looking at sentence structure and punctuation and will be working towards writing an Historical story (set in a castle) and a fact file on Castles. In Maths we will be working on number, place value and number bonds. In our theme lessons we will looking at different types of castles, their uses and who may have lived there.
Next week we will be having a 'Healthy School Week' and all year groups will be participating in exciting and healthy opportunities. More information will be provided soon.
We will be having our 'Meet the teacher' session on 25th September after school, where we will be giving further information about Year 1 and a few changes that are being implemented across the school this year. If you are able to attend then it would be lovely to see you all there. If you are unable to attend please let me know and I will print the information for you and send it home with your child.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to come and see me.
I look forward to a very successful and exciting year.
