Reception/Year 1 – Yellow

Our class teacher for the 2017-18 academic year is Mrs S Evans.

Our teaching assistant is Ms Eastmond.

Our First Term

The children will be settling into school life and they will begin to develop an understanding for school and class routines. They will be learning about each other and will be creating special friendships with their peers. The topic we will be looking at is ‘What is it like to be a St Anne’s learner?’. The activities will be chosen and led by the children’s interests, this ensures they have a love for their learning. Topics will be updated termly on our class page and also on our weekly newsletter.

Autumn 2

After half term our topic is ‘Where do the leaves go in Winter?’  The children will be learning about seasonal changes and animal behaviours over the different seasons.  We will be observing the leaves on different trees and asking the question, why do some trees lose their leaves and others don’t?

Outdoors

We love to learn outdoors!  We will go out and use the outdoor area and quadrangle for a variety of activities and in all weathers! Please can you provide a pair of wellies for your child to wear when necessary, it is also important that your child has warm, waterproof clothing e.g. water proof coat, gloves and hats for cold and wet occasions.

PE

PE will take place on Mondays. PE kits consist of; Black shorts, red polo shirt and black pumps. Please can you provide these in a PE bag and label all items clearly with your child’s name.  Please leave PE kits in school during term time.

Investors in Pupils

The children in the class will be developing their own mission statement, target and reward for this half term.

We will share our statement, target and reward with you when the children have decided.

We thank you for your continued support and cooperation.
