Year 1 Advanced Phonics Meeting 7th October
Welcome to Kingfisher class. The children have settled in to their new class very well and have been amazing at adjusting to the many changes. Kingfisher class has a lovely, big outside area with trees and a wooden train which the children regularly use to play in.
Our first topic of the year explored the book ‘Here we are’ by Oliver Jeffers, looking at our wonderful world and the part each child plays in it. Some of the many activities included painting globes and writing poems.
We recently had a visit from the ‘Life Education Bus’ and Helen taught the children how to look after their bodies and how to stay fit and healthy.
Please find out what the children will be learning about in our class newsletter below.
Library days: We are keen for children to share books with their family and enjoy new stories. Please note the following:
