Welcome to Year 1 Pages
Fiennes, Da Vinci and Kandinsky
Welcome to Year 1
Year 1 is made up of three classes across our King and Kirk campuses.
Kandinsky Class is based at Kirk Campus, with teachers Mrs Shand and Mrs Williams and TA, Mrs Spencer. At the King Campus we have Fiennes Class, with teacher Miss Higginson and TA, Miss Stenning and Da Vinci Class with teacher Miss Webb and TA Mrs Wilkins.
Our topic this half term (Autumn 2) is Walk this Way. We will be learning about Andover. We will be looking at where Andover is in the world and how it has changed over the years.
We highly encourage parents to read with their children at home as this not only helps to develop their reading skills but their enjoyment and pleasure for reading too. With this in mind, children who read 5 times or more at home over the course of the week will receive a bookworm sticker. If you read with your child at home, simply record it in their home school diaries. Home school diaries get checked every morning.
Our banded book change day is Tuesday and Friday.
Additionally an updated key word list will be sent home each half term for you to practise with your children at home. Children will be tested regularly at school.
This half term (Autumn 2) we will be doing indoor PE on a Tuesday. Additionally, our PE block is the week commencing 26th November.
It is important that your child has their named PE kit in school everyday, so that they can participate in all sessions.
We also take part in a daily run everyday, so please ensure your child has suitable footwear in school daily.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to catch a year one team member on the door.
Thank you for your support.
