"Think and wonder. Wonder and think."

Our week in year 1 has been full of exciting learning; there have been 30 curious Clara clownfish in school each day. The children have been so brilliant at asking questions and challenging their own thinking, in order to better understand. This was particularly evident in science; the children continued their learning about the different animal groups (mammals, fish, reptiles, amphibians and birds). If you spy any furry/hairy/scaly/slimy or feathered friends over the weekend, please challenge the children to tell you which animal group they belong to.

In English, we have continued with our focus story - Dangerous. We have begun creating story maps so that we can retell the story with actions and enthusiasm. I will be posting a copy of the story map on the blog - when we have finished it. Then, the children can share the heart-warming story of Mole and Crocodile with you too!

Thank you to all of those who attended the Induction Evening. It was so wonderful to meet you all properly and share the children’s learning journey with you. We hope we answered all of your questions, but if you do have any concerns please don’t hesitate to ask. If you were unable to attend the Induction Evening, please do get in touch if you have any questions.

Yoga stars - Bella and Archie. You were both so peaceful and mindful this week. Well done!

Class Tiger

This weekend the class tiger has chosen to come home with Faye! Faye you are such a role model to all of the children in Year 1. You stop, look and listen as quick as a flash and always put all of your effort into your learning. I hope you have a wonderful weekend with the Tiger and remember, don’t leave him alone in the kitchen!

  • Please return any forms given at Induction Evening as soon as possible. The sooner the forms are returned, the sooner photos can be uploaded onto the blog. We kindly ask that children’s flu forms are returned to class by Monday at the latest.

  • Please can children come dressed to school in their PE kits on Monday (23/9/19). This is in addition to coming dressed in PE kits on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week. I really appreciate your co-operation with this.

  • Please ensure that all clothes, bottles and bags are labelled clearly with your child’s name.

  • Please prompt the children to bring their reading books (inside the plastic wallet) to school every day. Every opportunity to read during the day will be taken!

We hope you have a super weekend and I look forward to more brilliant learning on Monday.

God bless, Miss Lane & Miss Woodrow
