Welcome to another year in KS1. We are all pleased to see the children back and meet our new children. We have loved hearing about all the exciting adventures that have been had over the summer holidays.
Thank you to all those who attended the KS1 Meet the teacher meeting on Wednesday 12th September. It was great to see so many of you there. If you were unable to attend a brief summary of what was discussed can be found below.
This term our topic is Fire, Fire.
We will be learning about the Great Fire of London through History, Drama, Dance, Music and Art. We will also be thinking about different types of materials and what we use them for. We are looking forward to the Harvest Festival and theatre trip to see Dick Whittington at the Oxford Playhouse.
Oh, Yes we are!
Useful Information about KS1
All children need to bring in a water bottle to use in class.
Please make sure these are labelled and the children are able to open them so they can be refilled.
We recommend water bottles come in on a Monday and go home on a Friday.
Children will need to have their reading books in school everyday.
We run a reward scheme that celebrates regular reading and we have some great stickers to add how they feel about their books. Please remember to keep your reading total up to date.
PE and Games kits
All children in KS1 have two activity sessions a week.
PE is in the hall and your child will need a white t-shirt and black shorts.
Games is our outdoor session and we go out all through the year. They will need jogging bottoms, jumper, t-shirt and trainers.
We are happy for PE and Games kits to stay in school for the whole term.
At the beginning of the term we will set a number of different tasks for your child to select from. These tasks are based around the topic and we only expect one to be completed per week. Homework books will need to be handed in on a Monday and they will be returned on a Wednesday.
Children will also bring home spellings to learn for a test on Mondays.
We also provide Maths activity via MyMaths. Passwords and login details will be found in their homework book.
Within school, we celebrate success and hard work with housepoints for their teams.
Each week classes award "Star of the Week" certificates to children who have shown excellent work or had a brilliant attitude.
We also use raffle tickets to reward kindness, good manners and teamwork. These raffle tickets are collected from all over the school on a Friday and then four tickets are drawn out of the jar.
These lucky children then get to go to the Headteacher's Tea Party (with cake).
Please remember to label all clothes as it makes it much easier to get missing items back to you.
