Hello and welcome to Class 1 where we have plenty of fun learning through play.
PE is on a Tuesday. Please make sure your child comes to school in full PE kit.
Homework and reading books are given out on a Monday. Please return them to school on a Friday.
We have been practising balancing on one or two parts of our bodies.
Then it was a lovely windy day so we had a good run around on the field with our ribbon streamers. It really got our hearts pumping fast and made us feel out of breath. We know this is good to keep us fit and make our muscles strong.
We have had a great first few weeks of school. The children seem to be really enjoying themselves and have adapted to the new routines (and teacher) brilliantly. They are making new friends and having great fun playing and learning.
For the first two weeks this term we have been looking at the book Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers. We have learnt about where we live on the Earth and what we do there. We have learned about how to take care of ourselves and about how everyone on this Earth, no matter what colour, shape or size, are all people and we all have to be kind to each other. We have learned about the animals on our planet and how we should take care of them. We have compared quiet spaces to loud, busy places and have talked about how they make us feel and how we can enjoy both. It has been a really lovely book to share.
