This week's Numbots Champion:





This week in Year One:


This week has been very busy! We've been revisiting subtraction in maths and the children have all made good progress with this. 


In English we have been researching about India and have written our own fact files.


We discussed mammals and birds in science and have been busy practicing our songs for the carol service. 


Thank you for sending in wellies for forest school. The children had a great time out on the field. 





Please see the separate email fir Christmas dates. The children don't need any costumes for the carol service. 



Handwriting this week focuses on the spelling words- hopefully this helps! Please practise spellings, focus on the tricky words if all 12 is too many and lots of Numbots! We're looking for a new Numbot champion each week!

Reading books: 

The children will be issued a new book every Friday. Reading records need to be filled in at least three times a week by an adult at home and brought into school on Wednesday for us to check.

Please bring all reading books back into school on Wednesday as the books are used in our guided reading sessions before being sent home. It is really important books come back as they are used across the Key Stage. If they are not returned there is not enough for guided reading in school. Please note, you do not need to bring your child's books in until Wednesday, then the book bag will remain in school until Friday. 


Please remember to send your child in with a water bottle, fruit and vegetables snacks are provided.  



The children will be bringing home a book weekly from the school library. Please ensure this is returned the following week for a new one to be issued. 



Spellings will be given out on Friday and tested on Wednesday.  


PE days: Mondays and Thursdays- please ensure the children come in wearing their PE kits.

Forest School:

Once a fortnight, children will be taking part in forest school on site with Mrs. Selwood. Please provide a pair of named Wellington boots to stay at school on their pegs.
