This term our topic is Happy Feet
We will be learning about the Polar regions - their geographical features, the animals that inhabit them and the problems that they face. We may have some special visitors in school! We will also be exploring the effects of using warm and cold colours and different materials to create pictures.
On Tuesday 5th February we will be taking part in Internet Safety Day.
As part of our English we will be exploring the book "footprints in the snow" and using this book to generate instructions to help a wolf make friends and even our own story.
We will also be introducing a new PE scheme (Real PE) to the children. This helps to develop children's understanding of movement and control while providing all the skills for sport in a fun interesting way. It also offers great opportunities to challenge themselves in school and at home - so watch out!
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.
