Term 1 2017

Welcome back to Term 1.

We hope you had a wonderful summer break and are ready for a fun filled start to the school year! We’d like to take this opportunity to welcome all of the Year 1 parents who will be joining us in Key Stage One.

This term our topic is called ‘Percy The Park Keeper.’ The topic will be based on the stories of Percy The Park Keeper and his friends the park animals. We will also be making many links with other subjects as well. (Please see attached topic web). If you have any books or resources based on these stories, please let us know.

Our “Building Learning Power” theme this term is RESPECT. We will be looking at why it is important to show respect to our teachers and friends and we will look at ways in which we can show this.

Home Learning

Home learning will start week commencing Monday 11th September 2017

We encourage children to read daily at home. This can be your child’s school book, an e book from Bug club or a book from home! Every time your child reads at home please make a note of it in their Reading Record book (Monkey book). If it isn’t noted in the Reading Record book that your child has read their school book to an adult, we can not change it. This will mean that your child will have to wait until their next allocated day to change their reading book.

Below is the timetable for home learning:

  • Monday – Words to learn (activity now planned for children to complete in book and hand in to school the next day) and reading
  • Tuesday –Reading
  • Wednesday – Reading and handwriting (handwriting is due in on the Friday)
  • Thursday – Reading
  • Friday – Reading and Brain Busters ( due in on the following Monday. Please allow only 7 minutes for Brain busters)


PE will start the first week back, 4th September 2017 and is on a Wednesday and Friday.

If you have any questions regarding your child’s learning, please pop in and speak to one of us.

Mrs Jacqui Walker and Miss Anna Pearce
