Mrs Kidd - firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for taking the time to look at our class page on our school website.
At our school we place a great importance on Reading and we would ask you to encourage your child to read their school reading book everyday and record this with a signature and a message if possible. Obviously reading stories to your child is still valuable and enjoyable for both children and parents.
Please return your child’s reading book to school everyday so that we can change the book if it has been read and also so that we can record if the child has read at school.
Each half term the children can earn raffle tickets each time they read 5 times with an adult. At the end of each half term a winner from each year group is then picked out.
We also set a class target each half term and our reward for reaching it is a new class book to share.
The children all have login details for Mathletics and Reading Eggs which can be found in the front of their reading record. These can be accessed at home and the children can earn certificates for earning points or completing tasks.
This half term we have PE lessons on Monday and Friday. Please send your child in their PE kit on PE days and they will stay in it all day. PE kit is a white t-shirt, navy/black leggings or jogging bottoms, a hoody or jumper and trainers/pumps. It should be labelled with your child’s name please.
We also do daily physical activity in the form of a Daily Mile or an indoor exercise (e.g. BBC Supermovers or Go Noodle) to get our bodies moving as much as possible.
Drinks and Snacks
We ask the children to drink water at regular intervals during the day so please provide them with a named, durable water bottle (water only, not juice). A fruit or vegetable snack is provided everyday for the children which they eat at morning playtime. You can send your child with their own piece of fruit or vegetable if you so wish but no other snacks are suitable, thank you.
And lastly, thank you for your support and if you have any questions or would like a chat, please catch a member of staff at the beginning or end of the day.

We have been exploring media to complete a picture of The Great Wave by Hokusai.
You can view all the Year 1 Sports Day photos here.
As part of our work about "The great Wave" by Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai, we are looking at line and shade. We took our pencil for a walk and practiced drawing different lines to fill in the spaces. It was lots of fun to do!
This half term we are doing basketball with the sports coach. We are practicing dribbling and passing. Its great fun!
We have been learning different techniques for making and fastening towers, turrets, walls and drawbridges. We have then used these skills to make our own castles! We had a great day!
We wrote letters to the Knight or the Dragon from this week's story and then made scrolls!
We carried out a fair test to see which material would keep the queen dry!
In RE we designed and built our own mosques that included a minaret and a dome.

This week we have been learning our number bonds to 10 using Numicon and games. we went outside to look for signs of Autumn and we sorted pictures and talked about the differences between the city and the countryside.

We have been learning about primary and secondary colours and have been colour mixing in art.
Big congratulations to one of our class friends who was one of the top 10 mathletes in the whole school last week! Wow!
In maths lessons, we are learning about 2 digit numbers and how we can represent them using arrow cards, dienes and flip books.
Week 2 has been busy in 1RK and we are settling into our new routines. This week we have been super readers, artists, mathematicians and we have started our topic called 'Me on the Map'. We also enjoyed our first PE lesson!
