*We are always looking for parent / grandparent volunteers to help with reading and classroom jobs, even a couple of hours a week is a huge help, with the promise of tea, coffee and biscuits! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping us in class.*
Every half term we will have a broad topic title. Throughout the year, adults and children plan what we will learn. As inspiration, most of our learning will be based around a story. Working together to shape our learning and experiences means everyone is motivated and engaged in what we do. Our ideas can take our learning in many exciting directions.
This year we will be studying the following five topics:
Autumn 1: I Spy
Autumn 2: Be Our Guest - Beauty and the Beast
Spring 1: Through the Woods
Reading Books / Library Books
Each child will be given a reading diary and some school books to bring home to read. Please leave a comment in your child’s reading diary so that school staff know how much of the book has been read. We will also check each the children's reading diaries frequently to see if they require new books to take home.
The children will be doing PE twice a week. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit (white t-shirt, shorts, plain tracksuit bottoms, pumps and trainers) in school at all times (and all clearly labelled).
The children may also bring in their own water bottles from in from home, but please make sure that they are labelled also.
In Key Stage 1 the children receive free fruit as an afternoon snack and will be encouraged to try everything.
If your child wishes to have milk please visit the website www.coolmilk.com and register. Cool Milk will then add your child to the list, ready for the following week.
