Covid-19 - parent info

Year 1

Spring 1 Week 2 Update:

The children have had a great week this week! We have started our BRAND NEW English book 'On Sudden Hill' and the children are really excited to start reading the story. In Maths we have started our topic 'Time' the children are really good at telling the time to o'clock and half past. It would be great if they could practise this at home! In Geography we have started to learn all about the UK. The children throroughly enjoyed learning all about England and London and they cannot wait to discover more places in the UK. 

Small Reminders:

Reading Books need to be in their book bags EVERYDAY! 

Earrings must be taken out for PE please. 

Your child needs a named water bottle EVERYDAY!
