Year 1 Bay 2019 - 2020
Welcome to our class page!
Mrs Winterson (Class Teacher) Mrs Avis (Teaching Assistant)
I hope you have all been enjoying the holiday with family and friends. I can't wait to hear all about your adventures over the half term break.
A new half term only means one thing... A new topic! Splendid Skies. How can we beat the last one?
This half term, we’ll take a walk outdoors to find out about different types of weather and to look for signs of the seasons. We’ll study TV weather reports, make weather symbols and learn about the life and work of Sir Francis Beaufort. Creative opportunities will allow us to explore weather in works of art, make season trees and create seasonal music! We’ll compose weather poems and write postcards describing the weather in different places. Our thinking skills will come in handy when we experiment with thermometers, investigate the effects of the Sun and compare weather around the world. When we are weather experts, we will share our knowledge with you. We will record and broadcast weather reports, perform weather songs and music and describe our ideal holiday destinations.
Kick starting our topic with a trip to Delamere Forest on Wednesday 6th November. I hope you have enjoyed sharing the knowledge organisers with your children. Please find attached a copy of extra activities you can do at home and the subject coverage for this topic. I look forward to seeing you at parents evening on 6th November.
Our P.E. days are Monday and Thursday. PE kits should comprise of black shorts, coloured house tee - shirt and pumps. Trainers , jogging bottoms and a sweater for colder days when outdoor PE is being taught. PE kits remain in school in one bag until each half term, where they will be sent home to be laundered.
Your child will be given a new reading book based on their own reading ability for them to read at home with an adult, plus a book to be shared together from the library. Reading journals and books need to be in school everyday.
As well as daily reading, your child will be given a piece of homework on Thursday to be handed back in the following Thursday. It will be either an English, Maths or an activity related to the topic.
There are always home learning ideas too that might interest you. These are attached to this page.
