Welcome to Year 1!
Mrs H Griffiths (W-F)
Teaching Assistant: Mrs I Davies
This term, we ask: 'Why do we like to be beside the seaside?'. We will be learning about seaside holidays from the past and comparing them to holidays we enjoy now. We will be identifying physical and human features of the Seaside in Geography. In Science, we will be learning about plants and we will also be celebrating Science Week. During this special week we will focus on scientific skills such as observation, enquiry, classification, prediction, explanation and fair testing. In our DT lessons we will be designing and making a Punch and Judy puppet. During PE lessons we will focussing on athletics and skills needed for our sports day in July. It will be a busy term!

Questions to discuss at home:
Where are our closest seaside places?
What do we like doing at the seaside?
Is it the same or different to what our parents and grandparents enjoyed?
Our RE unit is called 'Miracles' and we will think about miracle stories such as when Jesus calmed the storm. We will reflect upon how we can ask God for help when we feel afraid. We will also think about the compassion that Jesus showed to others through his miracle work and apply this to our own lives.
Week beginning 24th June is Relationships and Sex Education week. Our focus is 'We meet God’s love in our family'.
Children will know and understand that they are growing and developing as members of their own family and God’s family.
Letters have gone out about this. Please come and speak to us if you would like more information.
How can we show compassion to others?
Our PE lessons will take place on a Monday and a Wednesday but could you please ensure your child's PE kit is in school at all times as these days could be subject to change. Could you also please ensure that any earrings and jewellery are removed on these days.
We will post useful links below that will support your child's learning and give you a bit more of an insight into what we are learning at school.
Please do not hestiate to come and see usif you have any questions about Year 1.
We will be setting homework on a Friday. Homework needs to be completed and handed back into school by Wednesday of the following week. Every child who hands their homework in on time will receive a merit reward.
Spelling books will be sent home on a Friday. These books can be kept until the following Friday to allow the children to practise as much as possible.
Children who read three times per week at home, and have three signatures in their reading diary, will receive one raffle ticket to be entered into the prize draw. If your child reads six times at home , they will receive two raffle tickets.
Reading books can be changed as soon as your child finishes the book. Please ensure both their reading book and reading diary are in school every day (in their book bags).nto our subscribed pages here using your username and password:
