Hello and welcome to our class page!
Please remember that we are always happy to speak to you in regards to your child or any concerns you may have - please ask at the office to arrange a suitable time to speak to one of us.
We are in the final few weeks and counting down until the end of our time together in Year 1! There is still so much to do though before we break up - our trip to the Black Country Living Museum, work on the Victorians, phonics checks, looking at the Football World Cup, sports day and enrichment sporting day...
Please make sure you child has a water bottle in school, it does get very hot!
We are now entering the third and final term of Year 1! Where has the time gone? All of our class have made such brilliant progress and we are very pleased with everyone - keep it up for the summer :)
This half term our topic will be about The Great Fire of London and then the Victorians! Keep your eyes out for more information heading your way in the next few weeks. However, after our fabulous Knights topic last half term we have found there is a special St George's Day celebration in Tamworth Castle grounds on Saturday 21st April - might be worth a look! See the attached photo of the article with more information.
Wow! This half term may have been short but what a lot we've managed to fit in! Two lots of snow, a medieval visitor, World Book Day, TORCH reward day (for children who had their certificates Sept - Feb half term) and our wonderful projects about Knights, Dragons and Castles. Even Miss Mynett got involved!
This term we are headed out of this world - our new topic is Space! Over the coming weeks we will be looking at planets, stars and other space related things. On 24th January we are having a very special topic day with a themed lunch put on by Mrs Heap. Keep coming back to see what happens!
We had brilliant fun on our Space day with Captain Darling and learning lots of space related facts.
In the term leading up to Christmas we are looking at our new topic - 'World War II' - from the point of view of a child. This includes the 11th November and Remembrance as well as how hundreds of thousands of children were evacuated to the countryside for their safety during The Blitz. We will also be incorporating an 'Evacuee Day' on 15th November - please see the main Y1/2 page for a copy of the letter about this.
Our Pirates topic has been great fun and the children especially enjoyed the Pirate Day, making our own pirate chants, sharing their summer holiday projects and the wide range of pirate themed stories we have read together.
Homework this year
Homework sent home on a Friday will consist of a piece of Maths work. Please ensure your child's homework is in school before Friday of the next week so that it can be marked and updated.
This is in addition to their reading books, we ask for reading five times each week if possible and any reading your child does to be recorded in their diary.
Spellings will be sent home every Wednesday for our class and will be tested on the following Wednesday. Their spelling diaries do not need to be returned to school before the Wednesday, to allow them to learn their words!
Thank you and keep checking back here as this page will be updated.
