Year 1 is taught by Mrs Jones on a Monday and Tuesday and by Mrs Cort on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, We are supported in class by Mrs. Parker in the Morning.
This half term, put on your best outfit because you’re invited to have tea with the Queen. Use your best manners and comb your hair, as one will not be amused if you don’t! What do you know about England’s capital city? Let’s find out all about London, including its history, transport and famous landmarks. Step back in time and discover what happened in the Great Fire of London. Where did it start? How did it end? Create a model of the bakery on Pudding Lane, then burn it to the ground to recreate the Great Fire. Stand well back and watch how the flames spread. London’s burning! London’s burning! Fire, fire! Fire, fire! Hang on, there’s someone new in town. Plan a tour for Marley the Meerkat (he’s come all the way from Zambia, you know) making sure he takes in all the sights and sounds of London before he finally meets his family at London Zoo. Are you ready for the bright lights of the big city? Hop in a black cab and enjoy the ride.
In line with our phonics scheme the children will be sent home with a list of red words to read and write. Please find a list of these words below.
READING – Reading is one of the most important things you can do with your child to help them learn. Please try and read with them and to them as much as possible.
Twice a half term, we will send home a fun activity for you to do with your child. This is to support their learning through play and so they can continue to grow their brain at home with you.
