Autumn Term 2021-2022
We just loved getting to know you all during transition week before the summer holiday and all of the children’s beautiful colorful work is now hanging proudly in our classrooms already. However, it is just fantastic to welcome you back into year one as the new Autumn term starts.
‘We are Superheroes!’ is the title of our new topic and we can’t wait to get start with some very exciting work. In English, we will be exploring the book ‘Supertato’. We will then get creative and make our very own superhero potatoes which will take the lead role in our very own stories that we write. We cannot wait to see how your potato will save the day with their super power.
We will be working really hard to improve our phonics and we will be filling any gaps that we might have from our time away from school. We will be doing lots of reading and look forward to seeing you do lots of reading at home to be in with a chance of bagging a spot at our reading disco.
Our book change day will be a Monday, but please ensure your child has their reading book in school every day so the different adults can listen to your child read every week.
We will be doing lots of fun activities such as painting in the style of Vincent Van Gogh and learning all about our personal history. We will also be doing the Sheriff’s Challenge to see how far we can run as a class (hopefully we can beat the others!).
As per the text messages which you will have received, please send your child to school in their PE kit on PE days – Monday. This is a white t-shirt, black shorts and black or blue tracksuit bottoms and trainers. Please ensure that your child is dressed weather appropriately for this. Earrings must be removed at home on PE days as staff will not be able to assist children with removing such items. Keep a look out for further information regarding after school clubs which will soon be available to the year one children.
Be sure to follow us on Twitter for regular updates about the wonderful work we will complete each week.
