Dundee Road, Stoke-on-Trent ST1 4BS
Welcome to the autumn term. We hope you all had a fantastic summer break.
This term in our Learning Challenge Curriculum our questions will be ‘What was life like for people in the past?’ (history) and ‘Animals including humans’ for science. In science we will focus on animals and humans and how each one is suited to its environment.
In history we will be learning about life over 100 years ago and how houses and schools have changed.
Miss Kirkhams’ class will have P.E on Monday morning and Mr Burtons’ class will have P.E on Tuesday morning. All children need to have their P.E kit in school please. P.E kit is trainers or pumps, black shorts or leggings and a white T-shirt.
In Year 1 we try very hard to encourage the children to look after their own things. Please help us and them by making sure every item of clothing is named. This means we can help your child to find it if it gets lost.
The Key Stage 1 entrance door opens at 8.35 and closes at 8.45 – after this time please go to the office for a late mark. Please make sure your children come to school every day and on time.
Reading and Homework
Thank you to those of you who read with your child every night and send homework back in on time. Please send reading books and homework books to school every day. Please don’t forget to read online with your child using Bug Club. Go to www.activelearnprimary.co.uk and log in using your child’s personal log in which are stuck into their reading diaries.
As the weather gets cooler, please ensure children come to school in suitable shoes, coats and jumpers, all with names in please. Unfortunately we may not able to return unnamed items of clothing.
Collecting your child at the end of the school day.
We will bring the children out onto the yard at the end of the day. We ask the children not to leave until we have seen an adult. Children should be collected at 2.45pm. Please tell us if someone other than you is collecting your child. We cannot let children go home with anybody we do not know or with someone who is under the age of 14.
Thank you for your continued support,
Mr Burton, Miss Kirkham, Mrs Payne, Mrs Rushton, Mrs Brindley, Mr Turschmidt
The Year 1 team.
