Easter Bonnet Parade
On Monday 3rd April all of Year 1 will be taking part in the Easter Bonnet Parade. The parade will take place on the KS1 playground at 9.15am-weather permitting! Parents are invited to come and watch. Please try to make an Easter Bonnet with you child and send it into school by Friday 31st March. Letters to come soon.
Welcome back after the summer! We are really pleased with how the children have settled into Year 1. Thankyou for all your support with homework and reading.
Our topic 'Memory box' was very successful. Thankyou for sending in the photos of your children, they were really useful. They helped us with our work and made a lovely display! The children painted portraits and compared them with their baby photos. The portraits can be seen on display in the classroom and in the Junior corridor on the 'Art gallery' display.
Our topic this half term is called 'Bright lights, big city'. The children will learn all about London, the royal family and famous landmarks. They will also learn about the events of 'The Great fire of London'. Our recent visit to Warstones Library was very enjoyable and all of the children have now got a library card and a borrowed book. You will need to return these books to the library by the end of the month.
Welcome back after Christmas! We hope you have had a good rest and are ready to work hard in our new year! This half term our topic is called 'Dinosaur Planet'. The children will be exploring the Dinosaur Planet. We will imagine we are palaeontologists (scientists who study bones and fossils). We will dig deep and discover dazzling dinosaur facts! We are hoping to arrange a trip to West Midlands Safari park, more details to follow.
West Midlands Safari Park trip
Our visit to West Midlands Safari Park has been arranged for Tuesday 28th February. The children are really looking forward to it as it will conclude our 'Dinosaur Planet' topic and introduce our 'Paws, Claws and Whiskers' topic. Things to remember:
We hope the trip will be an enjoyable and successful day. Thankyou for your contributions which have enabled us to arrange it.
Thankyou for your support and enabling the children to take part in the readathon challenge. The children have obviously enjoyed reading a great variety of books and have been raising money for a charity to help seriously ill children in the UK. It has been lovely to see so many children engaging in reading.
Thankyou for all the generous contributions towards our school fund. We used some of the money to buy the food for our Teddy Bear's picnic. The children thoroughly enjoyed it and it wouldn't have been possible without your help. The Christmas party was a big success, the children had a wonderful time. Thankyou for your generous food donations.
Reading and Homework
Just a reminder, homework is handed out on a Thursday and should be returned to school on a Monday. Please find time to read at home with your child and write in their reading diary. Thankyou for your support.
Please ensure that your child's uniform has their name in. We have had several items of unnamed lost property which are very difficult to return.
