KS1 Topic Spring Term 2017

 

Lost and Found

Children arrive in school to find hoof prints and hay in the KS1 corridor and classrooms.  They explore who might have made they marks before being shown a CCTV image of a reindeer on the school site.  They are told that Father Christmas has left the reindeer behind and we have to help him get home.  Children explore the story called Lost and Found and learn to act out the main events through drama. The children also make clay reindeer sculptures. They discover where reindeers live and learn about the continents of the world. They also learn about weather changes and design a container to transport a reindeer back to where it lives.

Reading:

Remember to read at least 3 times a week and bring your book bag to school every day.

Home Learning Project:

Your teacher will have asked you to create a memory box at home with things that are special to you inside it.  Please ensure  your box is brought into school as it will be used in many different ways.

P.E:

All P.E kits are to be hung on your peg and remain in school throughout the term.

Snack

The children will receive free fruit every day during morning break time.  There is usually a range of different fruit available for the children to choose from.

Dinner

The children are entitled to a free school dinner every day.  They have three different options to choose from, along with a dessert and a salad bar is available daily.  A copy of the menu is available from the school office.  If your child does prefer a packed lunch, they are able to bring this instead.

How can you help your child?

  • Reassure your child - Key Stage One is fun and everything will be ok.
  • Support your child with their homework.  They will receive regular homework and may need help to begin with.  Each child will be given a reading record and these need to be in school every day.
  • Talk to us.  Please let us know straight away if there is anything we need to know.
  • Work with us.  If you have any problems or worries speak to your child's class teacher or Mrs Hogan, and we will try our best to sort these out for you.  Only by working together can we ensure your child achieves their very best.
