Welcome to Dragon Class Year 1!


I hope you have had a lovely half term and are ready for the final term of the year. I can't believe it has gone so quickly!


We are continuing our topic of 'Get Out of My Swamp' for the first three weeks of term  whilst Miss Gomes is still with us. After that we will be starting the exciting topic of 'Flight' where we will be learning about the beginnings of aeroplane fight, making our own papier mache balloons, and setting some balloons free to see how far they travel. We will also design our own paper aeroplane and have a competition to see how far they fly.


In Year 1, the children learn how to play the Ukulele every Friday with DJ. We also have PE every Monday. Please may children ensure that they have their PE kit in on a Monday. If children do not have their kit they may not be able to take part in the lesson. This term the children will be going swimming on Thursday afternoons, beginning the second week of term. Please make sure your child has their kit with them. Girls must wear a full swimming costume and not a bikini.


Children need to make sure they are bringing in their reading records every day which I will be checking. Children will have spellings and timetables to learn every week. They will be given out on a Monday and tested on a Friday. Dont forget to learn your 48 spellings. You still have all of term 6 to learn them so there is plenty of time to learn them in small chunks ready for our Spelling Bee just before the Summer break.


Parents, if you have any questions, concerns or just want to say hello, you are more than welcome to pop in from 8.30-8.45am every morning. Alternatively, if needed, you can make an appointment with me after school.
