Welcome back!

The children have settled in brilliantly during our first week back. They have enjoyed sharing their news about the Christmas holidays and we have loved listening to their stories!

We have lots of exciting things going on thisĀ  term. Our new topic is based around literature and we will be looking at the stories of Julia Donaldson.

In RE, we will be learning all about the religion of Hinduism and the children will have the opportunity to visit a local Hindu temple. The visit will be on 7th February 2018. Please read the letter that was sent home this week for more information or see your child’s teacher if you have any questions.

Year 1 football started this week. We had a wonderful time learning some of the skills with the coach. This will continue on a Thursday for the rest of this half term. There will be no PE on Fridays.

In addition to this, some of our Year 1 children have been given the opportunity to attend a Multi Skills Festival on Thursday 18th January 2018. If your child is attending, please send them to school in full PE kit consisting of black shorts, red PE t-shirt and a school hoodie and tracksuit bottoms to travel in. If your child is not attending this festival, they will be given the opportunity later in the year.

On Thursday 25th January 2018, there will be a Year 1 assembly to share some of the learning we did last term. All parents and family are welcome to join us in the school hall at 9.00am. We hope to see lots of you there! A separate letter will be sent out with more information.
