Year 1 - Leaping Lambs - Mrs MacCormack
Our new topic is all about Blood, Bruises and Bandages.' We will be finding out about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole and how both of these women have influenced the development of nursing. In Science we will also be finding out about animals, what they eat and some ways to classify them. We will be reading and watching “Nurse Clementine” and “Elmer” and using these as inspiration for our own stories. In Maths we will be learning place value, addition and subtraction.
We are very excited our upcoming trip to Cusworth Hall.
The children will be working hard on their reading and we would like to ask you for your support each night to read with your child. We encourage the children to read as much as possible and you play an important part in helping your child to read at home. You will find some questions inside your child’s reading record book that you could use to talk about the book after they have read it. It is important that children talk about the books they are reading to increase their comprehension skills. The children usually bring home an easier book than the one they read in school, this is to increase their confidence and fluency. Please sign the reading record book if your child has read with you as they are rewarded if they read every day.
Don't forget to sign up for 'Maths with Parents' who can send you ideas for helping your child at home with maths activities. If you have lost the registration details just ask and we can help.
We have our session with a sports coach 9-10 on a Thursday morning. Please can you keep their PE kit in school all week to cover sudden changes in the timetable.
We will be finding out about lots of exciting things and going on interesting trips or having visitors into school linked to our topics in Year 1.

It is important that your child attends school everyday as it provides a routine and develops your child's learning. If your child is unwell, please contact the school office before 8:50. Our weekly attendance will be displayed in the Year 1 entrance.
