Team 1 2021 - 2022










Our theme this half term is...    'chilling out'.

Welcome to your first half term in key stage one! We cannot wait to see you all. Team 1 will look at lot like your reception classroom, and we will be basing most of our learning on the children's interests for the first few weeks before exploring a wonderful new text, 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers.

We will be settling into the year 1 timetable, which will still involve plenty of 'learning time' when the children will explore the classroom environment and complete challenges based on the Early Years curriculum, progressing to the year 1 curriculum when the children are ready. It may look like 'just playing' but with expert adult support and the carefully planned activities, the children will be learning a great deal, alongside developing their curiosity, independence, and a love of learning.

In PE, we will be engaging in outdoor and adventurous acitivities this half term. In geography, we are travelling (virtually) to some hot and cold parts of the world, using our class text as a stimulus. We will be looking at key human and physical features of the world around us, and examining weather patterns and seasonal changes.

We are very lucky to have Mrs Caroe teach the class for Art and Design & Technology on a Monday morning during Mrs Weeks's planning time.

Please note:

Please ensure your child has the appropriate P.E kit and welly boots in school at all times. These can be left on their pegs. All items must be labelled with your child's name (including shoes).

Reading Books will be changed on a Tuesday and Friday each week to allow for the appropriate time for quarantine. The children read every day as part of their Ready Steady Read sessions, and read with an adult once per week in school. Please make sure you comment in your child's red reading log once they have read at home. We would recommend you read with your child every day to support their developing reading skills as much as possible. It really does have a huge impact on their learning in all areas of the curriculum.

If you have any questions regarding your child's learning in Team 1, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Mrs Weeks.
