Welcome to Year One!
We have a very busy and exciting term ahead of us. I am really looking forward to all the fantastic work we are going to produce together.
It has been so lovely to welcome the children back into school and we have been really impressed with how they have handled the change in routines and the classroom set up so far.
The first half term will be focused on revising key skills from EYFS and continuing to settle the children in to the change of pace in Key Stage 1. We will continue with Story Time Phonics reviewing sounds and then learning new digraphs and trigraphs.
Please continue to use the Oxford Owl website to access books with your child. They will have a levelled book to read in school, however at this time they are not able to bring these home. Children will be listened to read at least once a week by a school adult.
Other classroom information
PE kits – our PE day is Tuesday and so children should come to school in full PE kits. Our sessions will be outside so, as the weather gets colder, please ensure that children have appropriate kit (tracksuit and trainers).
School water bottles - are encouraged in school at all times- please ensure these only contain water unless other arrangements have been made with the class teacher/ head teacher. The children’s bottles can be refilled throughout the day
Uniform – Please ensure that all of your child’s uniform is named, it is difficult to track down lost items if they are not!
As we are not currently able to meet as usual, if you have any concerns or questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and these will be forwarded onto me. You hopefully have all now set up your account on Seesaw which will be used to communicate any important messages with you.
Thank you for your continued support. I am sure we will have a fantastic year and have a lot of fun!
