Welcome to Year 1!
We are the Super Spiders!
Taught by Mrs Barker and her CSA Mr Hopkinson.
This term our topic is "What Are Things Made Of?" We will be looking at different materials and finding them within our school environment. We will sort different objects by the material they are made from. We will test liquids and note their similarities and differences (oil and water). Finally we will investigate the properties of materials, deciding which is the best for specific jobs (what shall we make the gingerbread man's boat from? What is the best material for safely transporting a chocolate bauble)?
Our P.E. days are Wednesday and Thursday (this term learning multisports/team games). Please ensure your child has full PE kit in school on those days and is not wearing any jewellery.
Homework is given out every Monday (Tuesday if after school clubs are running), to be handed in the following Monday.
Our weekly spelling test takes place every Monday.
Your child will read with an adult every week. Reading books are changed weekly, on the day your child reads in school. Your child is welcome to borrow books from the school library at any time.
Please come in and see us if you need any more information.
