What a summer it has been! We hope you all had a lovely break and are as excited to start the new school year as we are. Your child will come home with a new reading book this week but we are still waiting on our new home school diaries to arrive so they might not be here for another week or so. In regards to reading, we expect EVERY child to read 5 times a week. This could be as little as 4 pages or as much as the whole book. Reading is so crucial for children's development, particularly at this age, and is therefore the most important aspect of home learning.
We are looking forward to a fantastic year ahead!
Year 1 Team
Swimming will be on Tuesday afternoons.
PE will be Thursday afternoons.
As per Reception, all children must have school dinners (this will be the case until Year 3).
Our new topic is Rio de Vida. We are going to be learning all about Brazil and carnivals. We will also be learning about the Amazon Rainforest. Please have a look at our knowledge organizer with your child to find out more about what we are going to learn. We had an amazing WOW day, where we learnt a carnival dance and played a samba beat on the drums.
Our first topic is Bright Lights Big City, we will be learning all about London. Our home learning grid is attached, as is the topic knowledge organiser so you can see what kind of things we will be covering.
