Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!


As Christmas approaches, we are working hard on our Christmas performance. Please support your child in continuing to practise their lines, particularly the cue line before them. Let us know if there are any queries regarding costumes.


In Maths, we have been working on money. Any additional support at home would be appreciated - for example, counting money, spending money at a shop, sorting money into the different coins, beginning to think about giving change in a play based way.


The children have enjoyed describing characters and settings based around Jack and the Beanstalk. Next week we move on to instruction writing, which will support us with Christmas crafts in the coming weeks.


In Art, we have been looking at Andy Goldsworthy. The children have loved making their own temporary works of art using a variety of materials.


Drop off arrangements:

Parents say goodbye at the gate.


Monday and Tuesday - children straight into classrooms to get changed for PE.

Wednesday - Friday - children make their way on to the playground and meet their teachers when the whistle blows.
