Welcome to Year 1.
We have had a fantastic first week in Year 1!
The children have explored their new classrooms, made new friends and got to know the teachers and teaching assistants. We have learnt all about some of the St Leonard's learning characters who will help us learn and be the best we can be. We learnt about perseverance, working as a team and being curious to help us learn and find out more. The children loved creating their own characters and we am sure many of these have been shared at home.
This week we will be sharing the book The Rainbow Fish. We will be using this text to inspire sentence writing as well as using it to explore the themes of friendship and kindness. In maths we will be sorting, counting and representing objects in various ways.
Your child will now have a new reading book and reading diary, please sign the reading diary when you have read with your child and bring it to school everyday. We will be providing parents with more information about reading at home soon.
Year 1 will be taught PE on a Monday and Wednesday, children will need to come into school in their PE kit.
We look forward to another amazing week in Year 1.
