Welcome to Year 1
Palm and Chestnut!
We would like to introduce you to the year 1 team:
Mrs Stafford - 1 Chestnut Class Teacher
Mrs Chalmers - 1 Palm Class Teacher
Mrs Hallam and Miss Swinscoe - Year 1 TAs.
This autumn we are beginning our topic of 'My Amazing Town’, focusing on the children’s locality and talking about the world around us.
Please read with your child at home and write in their reading log. We will count the number of reads the children have completed each week and they will receive a prize each time they have completed 10 reads!
Remember it is especially important to read regularly and practise your phoneme recognition. Be like a detective and try to spot them in your reading books! Also practise your spelling word lists as well as counting in ones - both forward and backwards!
Homework will be set each week on Class Dojo or Purple Mash and will be related to the work that we are doing in school. If you would prefer a paper copy, please let us know.
Do you have any ideas, needs or wants for this page? Why not let us know!
Take a look at the Children's Zone where you can play games and visit some cool websites. You can vote for your favourite!
Please remember that children should bring water, in a water bottle, which they can drink throughout the day.
This should be taken home, washed and refilled daily. Thank you.
Both Palm and Chestnut have outdoor PE on Wednesdays.
Children should bring their kit and keep it on their pegs for the week.
Please can we also ask all earrings (plus any other jewellery items) are removed prior to school on these days .
All the children will have the opportunity to visit the library and change their library books when the library re-opens.
Both classes will visit the library on Thursdays.
Please ensure they bring their book in daily to avoid disappointment.
