The children have completed their first full week as Year 1 and they have done extremely well. We started Read Write Inc and maths this week and so our mornings have been very busy. We still had time for choosing in the afternoons. The children have taken it all in their stride and have adapted really well to Year 1 life.
We also had our first PE and swimming sessions. In PE we are doing dance, which is always great fun.
On Thursday afternoon, we went on our walk around the local environment. Along the way the children were thinking about what they could see, hear, smell and feel. This will help us do some writing in the near future. Thank you to the grown ups that walked with us.
Clubs will start this week. As soon as I have a list I will put it up for you to see.
A couple of reminders...
Water bottles - if your child would like to keep a drinks bottle in the classroom, that this contains just water please.
Reading books - these can be changed daily, please put the reading book and reading diary in the red box in the morning. Mrs Fortune will then be able to change them. The children are doing a great job at becoming independent, we have been reminding them about this also.
As always, any questions, do come and see me.
Enjoy your weekend.
