Mr Walne's 2016-17
WELCOME TO CLASS 1!
This half term we are going to be travelling through time in our topic!
We will be looking at what life was like in the past and how much we have changed since we were born! I hope to organise a trip to Blists Hill throughout this half term to experience what school and life was like in the past. The topic itself will centre around History and Science but also Computing as we look towards the present and future.
During PE, we will be learning a cool new dance which we hope to present during our class assembly! Also, on Tuesday afternoons, I have arranged Miss Gonzales to come into Class 1 to do a little bit of Spanish with us which is really exciting!
It is going to be a busy term but one that I am excited about! Stay tuned for photos!
Please read as much as possible with the children as the Year 1 Phonics Screening Check will be upon us very quickly! This can be a scheme book from home or a free reader that they enjoy reading. Record this in their yellow reading record as much as possible! We hope to read with every child at least once a week too, 2/3 times if necessary.
Weekly homework and spellings will be given out on a Monday and will be expected back in the following Monday to be tested and looked at.
Please encourage the children to be independent as much as possible. At school, we are trying to promote organisation and responsibility for their items and actions to prepare them for the rest of their school career/lives. Support from home is appreciated!
Indoor PE will be on a Thursday
Outdoor PE will be on a Friday.
Our focus this half term will be teambuilding games to encourage the children to work well as a team.
As always, thank you for your support at home! It does make it a lot easier in class! If you have any issues, please don’t hesitate to grab me at the start/end of the day. If that isn’t possible, contact the school to arrange an appointment.
