Summer Term Second Half Message

I cannot believe we are in the final half term of Year 1, this year has literally flown by! We have lots of fun things planned for this half term including our trip to Farmer Ted's. This half term we are learning all about Space and Creation and busting those final BBs in Maths and Literacy. Fingers crossed we will also get lots of sunshine so we can take our learning outside.

The Snowflake Room

Our Classroom is named The Snowflake Room. Alongside focussed activities, we can learn in the continuous provision areas. We have a Home Corner, Reading Area, Understanding the World/Fine Motor Area, Writing Area, Mathematics Area, Sand Area and Construction Area.

The Rainbow Room

The Rainbow room is a lovely big room where the children access continuous learning through a variety of played based activities. This is a shared resource with Reception.

Our Outdoor Area

The Annexe

We now have a wet room to enable our children to change into waterproofs and wellies so they can access our new equipment safely - and mainly, keep clean and dry! The Rain and Shine room has also been adapted to house even more new outdoor resources and equipment which can be accessed by the children during independent learning time.

Year 1 Recommended Reading List

Giving children access to all varieties of literature is extremely important for their success. Reading is a key life skill which is crucial to developing language skills and access to the wider curriculum. It provides children with the chance to respond and develop personal opinions encouraging deeper thoughts and their imagination.  Our aim is to develop a love and passion for reading both at home and school.  We have specially selected high quality reading books for each year group.  Some of these books can be found in the classroom and some are available for loan at Lees library. Encourage your child to read as many of these books as possible throughout the year.

Please select the document below to see the books we recommend.

Home Learning

Spellings

Reading
Book Bag and Planner: Brought to school daily
Reading Books: Changed weekly or more often if necessary
Reading at Home: Little and often - please write in the planner when your child has read at home.
Home/School Book
Please use the planner to communicate with the Year One staff and also record when your child has read at home. We ask for the planner to be signed weekly, it will be checked on a Friday.

Things to Remember

 
P.E.

Your child should always come to school on a FRIDAY in their PE kit. Please make sure that they are wearing suitable trainers and have a pair of joggers in case of outdoor PE.

Outdoor Learning

Please make sure your child brings a coat to school everyday. Outdoor learning is a vital part of your child's learning and will happen on a daily basis. We kindly ask for you to provide us with a pair of wellies for your child which can be kept in school so the children can go and learn outdoors in all weathers! The wellies need to be labelled with the child’s name or initials please.
