|P.E. Days||Our indoor P.E. day is Friday and our outdoor P.E. day is Thursday. P.E. kits should be kept in school at all times. We will send them home over the school holidays. Long hair needs to be tied back .|
When children arrive in the morning they are expected to say goodbye to their parents on the playground and come into the classroom, led by the teacher. The children then change out of their coats and outdoor shoes, putting away their book bags, water bottles and lunch boxes. Once their belongings are away the children go to their places where they complete early morning work. At 9:00 the classroom door is closed and registration is taken, finishing with morning prayer. Any child arriving after 9:00 must enter school through the Main Reception Area where a late slip must be completed.
This half-term, we have really enjoyed developing our skills across the curriculum.
Our RE topic this half-term is 'Following Jesus'. We have been thinking about the importance of trust in friendships, as without trust we have nothing. We have been thinking about how we choose friends, linking this to how Jesus choose his Disciples. We have been learning about the story of The Good Samaritan thinking about times when we may have been a passer-by and times that we have shown kindness to strangers. During the time of Lent, we are learning about the different parts of the Easter story. We are learning about how Jesus sacrificed his life to take away our sins.
We have been reading Six Dinner Sid as well as instructional texts so far this half-term. We have been developing our knowledge and application of punctuation, as well as developing our understanding of using the conjunction and correctly.
We continued to develop our knowledge of place value with numbers up to 100. We have really enjoyed practising counting back from 100, as well as counting in different ways, e.g. 2s, 5s and 10s. We have been able to apply this to solving Multiplication and Division number problems, where we have been grouping numbers together in different ways and counting them up. We have also been making links between doubling and halving and multiplication and division.
Castle Day in Year 1
Monday 17th September 2018 we met Rufus. He is a family member of Mrs Crane. Rufus has spent a considerable amount of time training and 'passing' many behavioural and temperament assessments. All his accreditations can be seen in school.
We are very excited to be welcoming him to our team.
