Croeso i Flwyddyn 1
Welcome to Year 1
Class Teachers: Miss Fletcher & Mrs Thomas
LSA: Miss Stone
Our topic for this half term is:
We Three Kings (Light & Dark)
This term we will be using the Christmas story, particularly the three wise men following the star, as a stimulus for learning. The children were very interested in the star, and from this they asked lots of questions about light and darkness.
Please see our medium term plan below for further information about our curriculum this term as well as our new homework topic grid. This grid is for you to work on with your child at home. Do as many of the tasks as you like or feel free to create your own piece of work linked to our topic. Please send in all of your wonderful creations for us to share by Tuesday 17th December 2019.
In addition to topic homework, which can be completed over the course of the term (please see the attached document above), the children will be set weekly or fortnightly tasks with a Literacy or Numeracy focus to complete at home. This might be a game or an activity that you can do together at home. It will be sent out on a Friday and will be due back in on the following Wednesday. Homework now needs to be completed in your child's new Homework book - we will no longer be using P4C books.
If you have any questions regarding homework, then please do not hesitate in coming to see us.
Our Christian Value this term is Compassion
And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness." Exodus 34:6
This term in school we will be focusing on the value Compassion. We will be hearing stories about compassion from the Bible and examples from our daily lives. We hope that you will explore this value together at home too. Please the document below for further information:
VIP of the Week: Raife
Da iawn ti!
P.E. lessons are on Mondays each week and this term we will be focusing on dance in relation to our topic of Light. We will be creating our own 'Firework' dances. Please see the mid term plan for further information.
Pupils will need black shorts, a t-shirt in their house colour and trainers. We would be very grateful if you could practice dressing and undressing with your child and folding clothes into a tidy pile. This will help us in class and minimise lost clothing. Many thanks in advance for your support with this.
If your child would like daily fruit provided by school, it is £1.50 per week and needs to be paid for in advance on Parent Pay. Or you may prefer to provide your child with their own daily fruit.
