Miss Barrow

We have two wonderful Year 1 classes and our teachers are Mrs Holden and Miss Barrow.  

We have the superb Mrs Simpson and the amazing Mrs Caliskan helping us in the classroom too!

Our topic this term is:

BOOK MONSTERS

For this topic we will reading "Nibbles the Book Monster" by Emma Yarlett. 

We will also be creating our own nibbling book monsters.  We are all very excited this term, as it is not only Christmas but we are looking forward to performing our school nativity "Whoops A Daisy Angel". 

 

For more information on what we will get up to during Autumn 2, please have a look at our topic web.

Ready Set Ride

This term Year 1 will start the Ready Set Ride programme, which is a cycling programme with the objective of helping children become happy and confident cyclists.  The programme includes three different stages that will help build up the children's physical skills, which will invevitably help them ride a bike.  This term we will be focussing on activities that will strengthen the children's gross motor skills and core muscles.  Please have a look on the website where you will be able to register for free and have access to the different activities that you can do with your child to help them ride a bike.

Reading – Your child’s homework will be their reading.  It is important homework that children read regularly at home – please comment/sign the Reading Diary every night.  If your child has read at home and their book has been signed then they will receive a raffle ticket the following day.  At the end of the week a raffle is done and the winner will receive a prize.  The more your child reads during the week the better chance they have of winning!  The children are often encouraged to change their book. We will often send the same book home again: reading is not just about reading the words; we want to encourage children to have a really good understanding of what they read and to do this, it is important that they discuss the book and answer questions about it.

Some websites are listed below which may be useful for you to use with your child to reinforce the learning they are doing in school.   We are looking forward to a fun, action packed term and we are sure the children are too!
