Class 1 Autumn Term 1 Newsletter





Welcome to the new school year and a very big welcome to Class 1. We hope you have all had a restful and enjoyable summer break.


We are really excited to be back at school and ready to start our new learning adventure. Our topic this half term is Homes Long Ago where the children will be finding out about different types of houses and how homes have changed over time. To enhance this learning and bring it to life for the children we will be visiting The Higgins Museum in Bedford on Wednesday 19th September 2018.


May I take this opportunity to give you all some information that you may find useful.


PE days for this term are Mondays and Thursdays. The children will need a PE kit (Black shorts, purple t-shirt, black tracksuit bottoms and tops and plimsolls and/or trainers) in school on both of these days.


Reading Book Change Days are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please read as often as you can with your child at home and sign in their diaries when you have done so. We will be checking diaries on a Friday morning and awarding house points to those children who have read at home on a regular basis. There will be 10 house points for those children who have read 3 times that week and 20 house points for children who have read more than 3 times that week.


Our door is always open if you have any questions, worries or concerns so please do come and speak to us should the need arise. However, may I politely ask that if you have a concern that needs discussing in more detail and may need extra time please arrange a time after school to meet with us as the mornings are very busy, as you can imagine, getting the children into class and ready for their learning that begins at 9am.


We are really looking forward to getting to know you all and working with you throughout the year.


Thank you for your support.
