Spring Term

Dear Parents,

Firstly, I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year. I hope you had a lovely time over Christmas. Your children have settled well back in school.

There are a few things happening this term of which you need to be aware. Our new topic is The Man on the Moon. Inside this leaflet you can read about some of the exciting things we will be studying. We will be making rockets using junk modelling, solving maths space problems,

learning about the first moon landing and many more exciting things. Please collect junk modelling equipment in preparation for making rockets, eg, plastic bottles and tops, cardboard boxes and any other recyclable items.

PE will still be on a Tuesday so please make sure your child has the correct kit in school throughout the week. Please ensure your child’s name is written in all of their kit.

Reading is an extremely important part of your child’s education in Year 1 so please remember to read every night with your child. Re-member to send in book bags every day and books will continue to be changed on Friday. Spellings will be given on Friday along with your child’s new reading book, ready for their spelling test the following Friday.

I will continue to use the school blog so keep an eye on the school website to see what we’ve been doing in school. As always I am available before and after school if you need to talk to me about any school issues and once again thank you for your on-going support.


Mrs Arkless and Miss Heslop
