World Book Day

Year 1 had a wonderful day exploring and recommending their favourite stories and books. It was lovely to see a range of different stories and how passionate the children were about their own enjoyment of reading.

In the morning, year 1 were split up! Ten children from each class joined together to share a story written by Oliver Jeffers. Each group shared a different story and once back into their own classes they had to share what they had learned and say whether they would recommend the story and why.

We then received a visit from our twinned classes, where they were able to share their books with a different year group. They read some of their favourite parts of the story. It was amazing to see how enthused and engaged the children were and inspired to read each other stories.

1 Kandinsky, ended the day with their own story telling of ‘The Enormous Turnip’. Maya had brought in some amazing props from home to share and help us act out the story. Thank you Maya!

Helping at Home

 Uniform and PE Kits

Please ensure your child has the correct uniform for school and that all parts fit and are clearly labelled. Current PE days are Tuesday’s and Friday’s, however children should have their indoor and warm outdoor PE kit in school at all times.

 Home Learning and Reading

In year 1, children are asked to be read with at least three times a week. Ideally this would be their reading book but we encourage other books to be read too. Please ensure your child reads their books more than once to help with fluency. Books are changed once a week by the teacher, however there is a book changing box within the classroom, where books can be changed more frequently. In addition to this, they will also have challenge words to read and once they reach set 5, they will start to be sent home spellings. They will be tested on their spellings once a week. Challenge words will be checked fortnightly.

Current Library Sessions (subject to change):

 -       1 Goldsworthy: Wednesday pm

-       1 Kandinsky: Thursday pm

-       1 Miro: Friday pm

For homework this year, we would like to begin our ‘Wizard Challenge Books’. These will be sent out on a Thursday and should be handed in the following Tuesday. This will enable you to ask any questions or queries you may have on the Friday before the weekend.  We will set one piece of work based on learning that has taken place that week in either maths, English or theme.  This should be able to be completed by the child independently but may require a little support from you.

 Important Dates

 ·       Trip to the Church: Wednesday 31 October.

 ·       Christingle Production: Thursday 29 November 2pm

 ·       1 Kandinsky’s Class Assembly: Friday 8 February
