Autumn Term 2019

A big ‘Welcome Back’ to all our Year 1 Children, and a big ‘Hello’ to all our new starters.  We have been really impressed with how quickly the children settled in to school life during their visits and feel sure that this is going to be a very exciting term! 

We have an exciting time ahead of us and are looking forward to supporting your children to take their first steps in their educational journey.  This will be a term filled with new beginnings, new experiences and lots of new friends!  We are very lucky to have a fantastic team of support staff in Class 1. Mrs Ogden is our Teaching Assistant, along with Miss Pearson who works in a 1:1 capacity.   We are all here to ensure your children settle quickly in to school life and flourish both emotionally and academically. If you have any questions, queries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us. 

We are very excited about our new topic, Marvellous Me! We are going to enjoy finding out about ourselves and the world around us. We will be thinking about are amazing bodies, how our senses help us explore the world and how to keep fit and healthy!  We will explore the indoor and outdoor continuous provision, to develop out learning further.  We will also be undertaking lots of D&T and Art work, focusing on the art work of Picasso, Moore and Hepworth.  What a fun and exciting half term we are going to have!

The reception children will also have Year 6 buddies and I am sure they will love spending time with them.  The buddies will help the children at lunch time and also spend time with the children in the classroom.  The Year 6 buddies are very caring and kind and are looking forward to teaching the  reception children about school life. 

A few reminders:

PE days are Wednesday and Thursday.  Please ensure your child has their PE kit on these days.  PE will start on Wednesday 11th September. 

Friday is Golden time.  Your child can bring a small toy from home to play with during this time.  Golden Time will start on Friday 13th September.

We are going to have a wonderful start to the new school year and we are very much looking forward to the fun term ahead.  Autumn Term – here we come!
