Autumn Term 2021

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 visit at the end of the summer term and feel sure that this is going to be a very successful half 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 half-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. Miss Claydon, Mrs Ogden and Mrs Brain are our Teaching Assistants, and work in Class 1 at different points throughout the week.   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 to start our new topic, Love Where We Live! We are going to enjoy finding out about where we live and the World around us. We will be thinking about our School and how it has changed over time.    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.  We will focus on the art work of Constable to inspire our landscape masterpieces, while in DT we will be designing and making vehicles with wheels and axles.  In Science we will be developing our knowledge of animals including humans.  What a fun and exciting half term we are going to have!

The reception children will also meet their Year 6 buddies and I am sure they will love spending time with them.  The buddies will help the children at lunch time, helping them to settle in to the Hoylandswaine Family.  The year 6 buddies are very caring and kind and are looking forward to meeting the reception children to teach them about school life. 

Quick reminder:

PE is on a Wednesday.  Please ensure your child comes into school in their PE kit on this day.  A quick reminder that PE is a white t-shirt, black or navy shorts or skort and a black or navy tracksuit for colder days. Trainers should also be worn on this day.   PE will start Friday 10th 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!
