World Book Day

On the morning of World Book Day, we enjoyed a whole school Zoom, hosted by our librarian Mrs Tasher and Miss Paine.

We enjoyed hearing about each class' book recommendations and look forward to borrowing some of them from the library.

We shared our favourite stories with our friends and in the afternoon we enjoyed twinning with the older children. It was lovely to be able to meet with the older children again. They were kind to us and read our books to us. They also shared the books they enjoy reading too.

Mrs Tasher gave us book marks to colour in each time we read at home. We will work hard to read every day so we can fill up all the spaces!

Thank you for our book tokens too!

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

 ·       1 Miro’s Class Assembly: Friday 10 May.
