Welcome to Year 1!
Welcome back to Term 2! We hope you had a restful half term and are ready for a busy and fun few weeks. If you have any concerns, I encourage parents and carers to book an appointment to see me or a member of SLT at the office. This is to help ensure smoother transitions take place at the beginning and the end of the school day.
As Athletes we will continue to have PE every Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning so please remember your kits! Mrs Roberts will continue to teach Year 1 every Tuesday afternoon while I have planning time. Many thanks, Miss Bathgate.
Families are encouraged to come into class and read with their child on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, children should be coming in independently where they can complete the morning activity on the whiteboard.
Meet the Teacher Presentation
In line with our new home learning policy, all learning will continue to be based on the following activities: Daily reading, times table practise and spellings. Please return home learning every Tuesday.
I can be independent in my learning.

To begin our second enquiry ‘How does our city change?’ we enjoyed going on an Autumn walk. We worked in pairs to hunt for different things that represented this season. We then shared our ideas and questions with others and included this on our learning journey enquiry wall. Come and have a look in class at the questions we are wondering about!
Cat walk show
Year 1 celebrated the end of their enquiry unit today with a cat walk show. We enjoyed showcasing our amazing skills as engineers and artists. The children were so confident and really impressed all of the adults. Well done to them all on a great first term!
This week we were lucky enough to have a very special visitor with a bag of many hats! We have been learning about the meaning of different hats and the job roles that arise with these. Kerry who is our amazing cook showed the children the different hats she wears and we discussed the meaning of these. We are excited to make our hats next week!
