As we reach the end of our first half-term we have really enjoyed getting to know all of you. Through our topic of 'Me, Myself and I' we really feel we've got to know your children's personalities and interests. We will continue with this topic after half-term (overview can be found further down the page by clicking on the briefcase icon).
A polite reminder that your children should come into school on P.E. days-Mondays and Tuesdays- in their P.E. kits (P.E. t-shirt, shorts /jogging bottoms, trainers). Children only need their Little Bowden book bag, labelled drink bottle, snack and lunch box (if required). Please can we ask that drink bottles are not carried in their book bags in case they leak and spoil their books.
After half-term we will be starting weekly spelling homework. Your child will bring home their own spelling book- sometimes your child will bring home a handwriting/red words spelling sheet (in order to learn non-phonetically spelt words) or a phonics spelling word list. The phonics spelling word list is to be read by the grown-up, for the child to attempt to write, into their spelling book using their phonics knowledge.
Please feel free to talk to us afterschool if you ever have any concerns.
Have a wonderful half-term!
The Year 1 Team.
