Welcome Aboard Year 1
The teachers in Year 1 are Miss Upton and Miss Lydon (1VL). The Year 1 team will also be supported by Mrs Wilson. We are looking forward to getting to know you all.
This half term our topic will be 'Into The Woods' We will be learning about Robin Hood and the history of Nottingham. In science we will be looking at weather and seasons.
PE will be on a Monday. We now as that children come to school wearing their PE kit. Children will stay in their PE kit for the whole day. They will not need their usual school uniform for this day.
Children work better if they are well hydrated! Please could you make sure that your child brings a labelled water bottle to school every day, filled only with water. We would also like to remind you that children should keep toys at home to prevent any upset caused by these things being misplaced.
Now that your child is in Year 1, this half term will focus on children becoming independent learners. They will be responsible for changing their own reading books. Your child may need gentle reminders from home to swap the book they are reading when they have finished with it.
Hopefully you should all now be connected to Class Dojo. This is used to communicate with you about your child’s achievements and to pass messages on. We will only reply to messages during working hours.
Please let us know if you have any issues or concerns – we will always offer a listening ear. It is best to catch us at the end of the school day or leave a message at the office and we will get back to you as soon as possible to arrange a more suitable time to talk things through.
We look forward to making Year 1 a fun and exciting year for your child.
