WELCOME TO CLASS 1DW.
Welcome to our new school year! Mrs Weaving is the class teacher and the teaching assistant in our classroom is Mrs Webb. Mrs Evans will be teaching us P.E on a Thursday morning and Mrs Lauder will be teaching us Spanish on a Tuesday. We are looking forward to an exciting year of learning with our enthusiastic class of Year 1 and Year 2 children.
PE: Our indoor PE session is on a Thursday morning but we ask that PE kits are in school everyday. We will send it home at the end of every term to be washed.
We ask that children read at least three times a week and have it signed in their reading records. Reading is so important for a child so we ask that you listen to, and read with, your child as often as possible.
Book change days will be on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please send in book bags and planners to school every day as we use them for letters and information to send home.
Water bottles: Please send your child with their water bottle every day. We will send them home every evening to be washed, refilled and returned the next day - plain water only please.
Our belongings: Please name all your child's belonging. We do try to ensure your child returns home with all their belongings and your help with this is much appreciated.
Please do ask if you have any questions.
Happy New Year!
We hope that everybody has had an enjoyable Christmas break and returned ready for another busy, fun filled term!
We will be starting the term with a theme of Traditional Tales - Home and Away! Our English will include a range of traditional tales, including those written from a different viewpoint and African folk tales. In Geography, we are going to be learning about Kenya and making comparisons with the UK. We will be studying the work of a famous Kenyan artist and learning about colour mixing. Our Science this term is investigating materials.
As always, if you do have any questions, please ask.
We hope you had a lovely break and you are ready for a busy term! We will send out more information about our Christmas events nearer the time. Please do look at any Parentmail messages we send.
This term we are thinking about 'Light and Dark'.
Our English this term will include the text 'The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark' by Jill Tomlinson. In Science we will be investigating light and in History we will be finding out about 'The Gunpowder Plot'. In Art we will be developing our painting skills by creating firework pictures.
Please do ask any member of our classroom staff if you have any questions.
We will be using texts linked to our circus theme in English sessions. We are starting with 'Nell and the Circus of Dreams' by Nell Gifford. In our History sessions we are exploring how forms of entertainment have changed over time. We will be looking at colour and texture in Art and creating a collage. This work will link with our Science topic of the seasons this term.
