Hello!

We hope you all had a lovely long weekend. It was wonderful to see the children back in school today eager to learn.  

In English, we are reading Tom Crean's Rabbit. It will supplement our History learning about explorers as it is set on Robert Scott's expedition. We will be making predictions about what might happen and describing characters and settings from the story. 

In Maths, we are revisiting position and direction. We will be using positional language to describe the location of objects. We will also be learning about whole, half, quarter and three-quarter turns. 

Reading books continue to be available online via Collins E-books and staff add new books each week. If you need a reminder of your login or password, please let your child's teacher know, and we will reissue these. They were originally sent during the period of home learning from the 1CC or 1BD class email. 

As always, if there are any concerns or things you would like to speak to us about we are available at the beginning and end of the day. 

Mrs Dodd and Mrs Croton

Welcome back everyone! It is so lovely to see all of the children back with us after a lovely Easter break, and the sun shone for us too! This term we are starting our new Topic of Explorers and we will be learning about some famous explorers; Helen Thayer, Columbus and Scott. We are also starting our new Science topic called Animals Including Humans. 

In English we are going to be looking at a new book called Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. We began today by looking at the title and making predictions about what we think this book will be about. We thought about who might be in the book, what might they be doing and where they might be. The children were really enthusiastic about this today. 

In Maths we have been using number bonds to 10 to help us find number bonds to 20 and we were really pleased with how the children picked this up. 

Please find attached our new class timetables below. PE will always be on a Tuesday and Thursday but other lessons may change week by week. PE kits will need to be brought into school on a Monday and will be sent home again on a Friday.  We have an exciting term ahead and cannot wait to update you on all of our learning. 

As always if there are any concerns or things you would like to speak to us about we are available at the beginning and end of the day.
