Welcome back to school!
The children worked really hard in the Spring term and did a super job at putting together their performance for our production in such a short space of time. Well done to all of them!
This half term we will be focussing on the topic, 'The Circus is Coming to Town'. It is a very exciting topic and I know we will have a lot of fun learning about the history of the circus, the different acts you can see in the Big Top and having a go at performing some of these ourselves!
As usual we would like the children to complete a project based on this topic. Examples include a model of a circus, paintings or drawing of circus acts, writing about the circus (a poem, story or description. These are just a few options and ideas; the possibilities are endless!
Our project for this half term - The Circus.
Daily reading (15-20 mins) is recommended at home and the children have opportunities to change their own books independently throughout the day. Please ensure you write in your child’s reading record so we can see how their reading is coming along at home. At school we do lots of reading throughout the day during carpet sessions and lessons, the children will read with an adult at least once a week. Please record when you have read with your child- there are rewards systems in place.
Over each half term your child will be required to complete a project at home ready to bring in at the end of the half term to show peers and share with teachers. The projects need to link to the IPC topics and letters will be handed out each term to outline different areas of learning.
School meals All children in Year 1 are entitled to a free school meal. The menu is cooked by our experienced catering staff from fresh every day. The menu can be found on the link above.
