Welcome to Year 1!
We are the Super Spiders!
Taught by Mrs Barker and her CSA Mrs Lusha
This term our topic is Geography. We have studied our local area and what makes Jump (people, places and the natural environment). We had great fun investigating on our "Jump detectives" walk around the locality. We also developed our map reading skills, looking at maps of Jump and maps of Disneyland (thank you Ben)! Over the next half term we will be contrasting Jump with a completely different place - the Kalahari desert in Botswana. We will take a virtual plane ride over (along with Monty our friendly meerkat guide) to investigate the life of people and animals there, as well as the contrasting climate and environment.
Our P.E. days are Wednesday and Thursday. 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 in addition to reading as part of a guided reading group. Reading books are changed weekly, on the day your child reads in school.
Please come in and see us if you need any more information.
