Welcome Back Year One!
Hope you have all had a fantastic Easter break! I am looking forward to hearing about all the exciting things you got up to in the holiday. Last half term I was so impressed with the independence you have all gained and I am now excited to enter into the Summer term. During our lessons across this half term we are focusing on the topic 'Tanzania'. We will be exploring this through all different subjects including Geography, Literacy, DT, Science and Art. I am looking forward to seeing what fantastic facts we can find out together about how life differs for a child in Tanzania. In Literacy and Numeracy we will continue to work through our Year One targets which are highlighted in the half-termly newsletters. Our PE will now take place on a Monday and Tuesday so please bring your PE kit with you on our first day back.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and see me.
Keep up all your hard work Year One!

We hope you had a great half term and did lots of fun things!
During this half term we have lots of exciting things planned and I can’t wait to get started! This half term we will be exploring our new topic of 'Homes' where we will be looking at different houses, their features and how they have changed over time. In literacy we will be reading new books including 'The enormous watermelon' and 'Dogger'. In numeracy we will continue to work hard to build on our counting, addition and subtracting as well as continuing to develop our understanding of measurement. You have all worked so hard last term and I am very proud of all that you are achieving so keep up the hard work!

Happy New Year!
Welcome back everyone I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and all had a visit from Santa! I am really looking forward to this half term and all the lovely things that we have planned. During this term, we will continue to develop our working skills and becoming even more independent in class.
We are beginning our new topic looking at our school and the local area. In English I am excited to start our new book Beegu all about an alien who has crash landed on Earth and is very lost! If we're lucky we might even get to meet Beegu! In numeracy we will continue to develop our rapid recall of the addition and subtraction facts to 20 as well as counting forwards and backwards to 100.
We are super excited to get started!

We are all really looking forward to a fantastic first term in Year One! We will be helping the children to become even more independent this year by accessing all their resources in our classroom and carrying out a variety of exciting tasks. For the first few weeks, we will be focusing on celebrating the 120th anniversary of Cradley CofE Primary School! We will be learning lots about the history of the school and the local area around. We will also be focusing on maths developing their mental skills around counting and the rapid recall of + and - facts and in literacy exploring lots of lovely stories and books.
We will also be introducing a class mascot (Freddie the teddy) which will be sent home with one child every Friday. They can write diary entries of what they have done with the mascot during the weekend! Any pictures are welcome and will be displayed on the board in the classroom.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask and we will do our best to answer them.
We have lots of exciting things to learn and I can't wait to get started!
