Merry Christmas to you and your families, I hope you all had a wonderful day with your loved ones. Before we enter our second term together I want to say a big well done to each of you for your hard word and determination last term, I am very proud of you all! We will be starting the new term with the topic Toys.
In our vintage toy shop we will explore both old and new toys. In history we will explore toys beyond our living memory and create a timeline showing us the evolution of toys. In maths we will look at money and how much toys might be sold for, in the past and today.
Our PE days will now be Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so please continue to bring in full kit on a Monday and leave it in school for the week. We are fortunate enough to have Chance to Shine Cricket with us on Wednesdays, meaning we will be outside every week so please remember to pack a warm tracksuit.
Children will be sent home with new Reading Records the first week back. I will continue to check these every Friday and change their books twice weekly on a Monday and Friday. With the phonics screening fast approaching, any reading you can do at home would be highly appreciated.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your time off, and I look forward to seeing you in the New Year.
Happy half term, Fir Class! Firstly, I want to say a big thank you for all of your hard work and enthusiasm this half term. Our second topic this year will be Dungeons and Dragons.
In design and technology we will be designing and creating knight and dragon hand puppets.
With winter fast approaching we will be observing and exploring seasonal changes in science.
Our PE days will remain as Mondays and Wednesdays, so please continue to bring in full kit on a Monday and leave it in school for the week. As our PE topic is team games we will be outside every week so please remember to pack a warm tracksuit or black leggings.
Children will be sent home with new Reading Records. I will continue to check these every Friday and change their books twice weekly on a Monday and Friday.
Lastly, please remember to send children in with their 'chatterboxes' in the first week back.
I hope you enjoy a well deserved rest and I look forward to seeing you all next week.
Today it was our traditional tales day! We had lots of fun designing and making our own gingerbread men and women, having our own special traditional tales lunch, and performing our plays for Year 2. A big thank you to Year 6 for their amazing scripts and their help at teaching us our lines!
Today, Key Stage 1 had a visitor to introduce the science topic of bones and their purpose. The children were able to handle life-size bones and form a life-size skeleton. The children asked many questions and then completed their own skeleton, wearing a surgeon’s hat.
Welcome Year 1 to Fir Class. I hope you all had a wonderful summer holiday. Our first topic this year will be Traditional Tales. Throughout the term we will be reading a multitude of story classics such as Jack and the Beanstalk, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Little Red Riding Hood as well as some of their more modern versions such as Jack and the Jelly Beanstalk and Little Red Reading Hood. In English we will be learning to write our own fairy tales, too.
In Design and Technology we will be designing and creating our own houses, based on the classic; The Three Little Pigs.
Our PE days will be Mondays and Wednesday, so please make sure full kit is in school on a Monday and left for the week. Please consider the colder weather and pack a warm tracksuit or black leggings.
Children have now been sent home with new Reading Records. I will check these every Friday and change their books twice weekly on a Monday and Friday.
I look forward to our first term together.
