Hello and welcome to the Autumn term, our topics this term are Famous People and The Great Fire of London, more information will follow on the curriculum newsletter. Also coming this term is a parent workshop and the KS1 Carol Concert, look out for details on the weekly newsletters.
PE - Your child will need their PE kit in a named bag hanging on their peg; this should be in school everyday. We try to go outside when the weather is dry, so as well as a pair of shorts and a t-shirt, your child will also need a pair of jogging bottoms or leggings; they will need plimsolls or trainers to run around in. PE sessions for this half term will be on a Tuesday and a Wednesday.
Forest School happens fortnightly in KS1, usually on a Monday afternoon (this does change sometimes.) Our sessions this term are on the 9th & 30th September, 14th October, 4th & 18th November and the 2nd December. Your child will need a warm change of clothes (layers are good) that you don't mind getting muddy, a pair of wellies or old trainers, a waterproof coat and a spare bag for dirty boots, all of which needs to be in a bag on your child's peg.
Your child should be reading daily to an adult, which can then be recorded in their green reading record book. This needs to be in school everyday and placed in the green reading box as you come into the classroom in the morning. If your child reads their library book, a book of their own, listens to a story tape/CD or any kind of reading related activity, please also note it in their green reading record book.
Library - we go to the library every Friday, library books need to be bought in each week even if your child would like to renew it for another week.
Homework is given out on a Friday in a folder, it needs to be completed by the following Thursday at the latest, returned in the folder and placed in the pink basket.
If you have any questions, please feel free to come in and speak to Miss Eddy, Mr Bassett or Mrs Horn.
We use the zones of regulation to help manage our emotions. We are free to move our name to the appropriate colour when we are feeling excited, sad, tired, or cross. We understand it is normal to feel all these different emotions. By acknowledging them we can then find strategies to help us, which in turn will ensure we can move ourselves back to green. When we are on green we are ready to learn.
