Happy New Year! 

We hope you have had a wonderful holiday and feel well rested, ready to start the Spring term!

It is at this point in the year we begin sending home spelling homework on a Friday. This will be due back in school by Wednesday the following week. There is a long list of high frequency words children are required to read and write correctly by the end of year 1. We appreciate your continued support towards achieving this! 

Kings and Queens!

Our Spring topic is Kings and Queens. We will be introducing this to the children with a full WOW day on Tuesday 9th January. During this day the children will be moving around the four classrooms working on a different skill in each one. There will be art and craft, music, dancing and construction. We have asked that each child bring in one small bag of clean, recyclable materials to assist with junk modelling. Children are able to come to school dressed as a King or Queen on this day. 

During the Spring term the children will learn about The Royal Family, castles in their locality, materials and St George whilst continuing to develop their reading, writing and maths skills. We will be exploring these topics through key texts such as The Queen's Knickers, Queen Elizabeth II (non-fiction), Charlie Stinky Socks, Rapunzel and George and the Dragon.
