Welcome to Year 1!
Welcome back to the Spring Term. We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year.
Firstly, we would like to say a huge thank you for all our lovely cards and gifts.
Over the next term we are going to be looking at ‘Our Local Area.’ As part of this topic children will be looking at maps of Byfleet, talking and mapping out their route to school and thinking about how Byfleet is different to other parts of England. If you have any pictures of the local area or you visiting any local buildings (library, church, park etc.) it would be lovely to share these with the class.
We will be visiting Brooklands at the end of this half term. You will receive a letter shortly with all of the information.
Our Science topic this half term is 'Animals including Humans' and we will be continuing to look at the weather related to the different seasons.
Homework will be set on Fridays to be completed by the following Friday. The children will have weekly spellings to learn in line with the new curriculum and Maths homework will be set online on Mathletics. Children’s log in details can be found in the back of their reading records. Children need to read at home on a regular basis and this needs to be recorded in their reading records and sent back to school on a daily basis.
As the weather is getting colder, please ensure that your child has tracksuit bottoms and a jumper in their P.E kit. Could you please check that all items are named, including hats, scarves and gloves.
Show and tell will be on a Friday. This will be under a rotation and your child will be informed on the week they can bring in show and tell. The groups will also be displayed in the classroom window. If your child has any topic related items or work to share with the class this can be shared any day of the week.
At home times, children cannot be released from our care unless we have seen the adult collecting the child from school. To ensure the safety of the children please inform us if your child is being collected by a different adult to usual.
I look forward to working with you and your children this year and I am happy to meet with you if there are any particular issues you would like to discuss. Alternatively, please do write any queries in the reading record books and I will respond as soon as possible.
Thank you for your continued support at home.
