Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back after the Christmas break. We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and we would like to wish you all a very happy new year.
Congratulations to Year One children for all their hard work that went into their Christmas performance/production. They behaved in such a grown-up way, and enjoyed the whole process!
It promises to be a very busy and exciting term (Year 1 Curriculum overview document)!
Please continue to support your child with the correct formation of letters and numbers. Help them to learn to read and spell common keywords so that reading and writing becomes easier and more automatic (these can be found in the homework journals).
We expect the children to read at least three times a week at home (please sign your child’s reading record). In school we listen to the children read at least once a week during Guided Reading.
Thank you for all your support in the autumn terms, especially to the parents who regularly give up their time to help us, it is much appreciated!
On Monday 2nd of October 2017 we had a Jewish Assembly, led by Iris, from the Progressive Jewish Synagogue in Bristol.
We were able to learn what Shalom (Shabbat Shalom) means…
Welcome to St Therese of Lisieux Class!
Class Teacher: Mrs Costa
Welcome to year 1!
Now your child has entered Year 1 they will be following the KS1 National Curriculum.
Teaching is based around a theme, similar to the Foundation Stage.
We try to make learning as enjoyable as we can for the children, so that they feel happy and comfortable during this transition.
It is very important for you to continue to support your child at home with their learning. Homework book will be sent home each week on a Friday and should be returned to school by the following Wednesday. The children are also expected to read at least 3 times a week at home. Please record this in their reading record book.
Please note that on the 9th of October is St Therese of Lisieux’s class assembly in the Hall at 9:00 am.
I look forward to a great journey of teaching and learning this year,
Mrs Armanda Costa
