Welcome back to a new school year. We are looking forward to lots of new learning opportunities over the coming weeks.
This term in year 1 we will be working on our new topic; Enchanted woodland . The first few weeks of our learning will be based around the story of Hansel and Gretel. We will be learning how to retell the story orally and in writing. We will also be learning about different woodland animals and their habitats. We are looking forward to visiting The Doncaster Forest School. This is an amazing opportunity for the children to have a memorable experience in the great outdoors. Please bear in mind that on the day of the visit we will be outside ALL day so please ensure your child is dressed appropriately and has suitable footwear.
Class 2's P.E sessions this half term will take place on a Monday and Wednesday. Please can you make sure that your child has suitable P.E kit in school for these days and ensure that ALL clothes are fully labelled with your child’s name. Please could you also ensure that earrings are removed on these days so that your child is able to take part in the lesson. Some of these lessons may take place outside so please ensure your child is provided with suitable kit for indoor and outdoor PE. On Mondays our PE lessons will be lead by Active Fusion coaches.
Please could you bring your school reading book into school to be changed in the library area. This will be done every Wednesday but if you feel it needs changing more frequently please feel free to do this in the library area before or after school. Listening to your child read for just ten minutes each day can have a significant impact on their learning.
