Miss A Hedley Y1 Teacher
Dear parents, carers and children,
It has been great to welcome year 1 back to school after an extended time off. I am so proud of how the children have settled back in to school routines and made themselves at home in year 1.
In reflection of the current challenging times, school is operating a little bit differently in order to follow government guidelines. Thank you for making an effort to arrive at school at the allotted times, social distancing and adhering to our new rules.
In school we are working hard to keep the children safe and happy. Our class author in year 1 is Oliver Jeffers who writes a lot of fiction centred around children’s feelings and experiences, so I encourage you to get your hands on some of his work if you can do so! There are lots of exciting topics that we will be looking at this term. The children will be studying the geography of the local area and the history of toys! In English, they will be studying books such as The Jolly Postman, The Emperors Egg and The Puffin Book of Fantastic First Poems, as well asking themselves the question; Why do elephants have big ears? In maths we will be getting to grips with place value and addition and subtraction within 10 and in science we will be learning about the human body and animals and their habitats.
Due to the current restrictions we are unable to stop and answer questions at the gate. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to telephone the school office.
Thank you for our continued support. We are looking forward to a great year with our lovely year 1 class!
Miss Hedley & Mrs Stewart.
