Miss Baddiley and Miss Brown
Welcome to Year 1! We are so excited to meet you all and get to know you as part of our new class. It is okay to be feeling nervous about returning to school after having such a long time at home, but we can assure you that there are precautions in place to keep your child safe.
We have worked hard to create a safe and fun learning environment for your child, which is similar to Reception, whilst also allowing children to adjust to their new year group.
If you have any concerns or questions, don't hesitate to email or arrange an appropriate time to meet.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and is expected to be back in by the following Friday.
For this half term P.E. will fall on a Monday (Dance) and Wednesday (Outdoor games). Please remember to bring in your P.E. kit. As we are in the colder months please make sure you bring an extra jumper and jogging pants with you.
Spellings will be given out every Friday and you will be tested on Friday, The spellings will mainly be 'tricky words' which children use every day and need practice spelling.
European day of Languages:
Friday 25th September saw Year 1 celebrate European day of Languages with a focus on the sunny islands of Greece. We had a fun filled day with a range of Greek themed activities. We were excited to learn some popular Greek lingo, dance along to a traditional Greek dance (Zorba the Greek) and finally taste some delicious Greek cuisine.
Bus tour and Notting Hill Carnival
For our WOW day this half term, Year 1 pretended to board a London bus and travelled around some of the famous London landmarks. We hopped off our pretend bus at Notting Hill Carnival and spent the day taking part in a range of carnival themed activities. We started by playing steel-pan drums, creating colourful carnival masks, painting and decorating t-shirts and finally we ended our amazing day with some food tasting of typical carnival Caribbean food. Year 1 then took part in their own parade using their decorated masks and T-shirts. We danced and had lots of fun!
