Term 1 - Funnybones.
During the first term of 2019/20 we will be finding out about our bodies. We will be using Funnybones as a title for our learning.
During the topic, we will be finding out about our own bodies, investigating and talking about the changes that have happened within our own bodies since we were babies and will be looking at similarities and differences.
We will be looking at the human form and using a variety of materials and methods to create portraits.
As part of our topic, we will be heading to Hill End for our first outing of the year to spend a day completing team challenges, sensory walks and having lots of fun.
We will be starting our daily Phonics sessions, having Maths and English lessons and taking part in Science, Art, DT, PE, Music and Computing. We will be spending time working on History and Geography work as well.
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.
For term 1 children are also encouraged to play some of the Maths games that are on the website.
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.
