Year 1

 

We hope that you have had a lovely half term holiday and have enjoyed lots of Halloween and autumn activities.

 

During the second half of this term we will be continuing with our topic:

 

Happy Homes and Beautiful Buildings

 

 

 

We will be continuing with our scientific learning focusing on naming and grouping different materials.  The children will be doing lots of practical activities as well as extending their scientific vocabulary and knowledge.

 

We will also be moving the focus from Geography to History. We are excited about our trip to Holgate Windmill and we are sure that they children will have lots to tell you. During this topic we will also be learning about how the railway carriage works have changed in this area and why. We will also be looking at how our school has changed over the years. We would love it if anyone who came to this school over 30 years ago, would be able to come and talk to their children about their experiences of school.

Bug Club

Your chid will bring home their Bug Club passwords in their reading records. Please log in and complete the books on a regular basis. Please also remember to encourage your child to read something every night to you. Research shows that in the early stages of learning to read, children should read the same book at least three times to help them become confident with what the book is about and the vocabulary that is used.
