Shwmae Year 1,
It has been lovely to welcome the children back to school for the summer term.
Our new Context for Learning is 'Rio de Vida'. We will be looking at carnivals and festivals in Rio and dancing feet will be stepping to the beat as we teach the children samba moves! The children will also be meeting magical creatures from Brazil's myths and legends before creating their own. As football is also a big part of the Brazilian culture, the children will get a chance to practise their football skills and learn about the sports that are part of the summer olympics. To end this Context for Learning, we will have our very own carnival, where the children will get the chance to dress up in colourful clothes, wear carnival headdresses that they have made, play musical instruments and dance to samba music!
For those children unable to attend school (e.g. if self isolating or a member of the family is isolating), we will continue to put a weekly planner on the website that outlines the main literacy, numeracy and creative activities that we are covering. PE day will now go back to being every Tuesday, so your child will need to wear their kit on this day.
Please keep checking your parent mail, Twitter account and Seesaw announcements for up to date messages.
Thank you for you ongoing support, keep safe and well,
Love the Year 1 Team

A Planet Full of Plastic, a Non-fiction Book read by Miss Crompton
Welcome to Year 1
This Friday your child will take home a reading book in their green folder. The folder with the book inside needs to be returned every Tuesday. Please make sure you only return the book in the bag as we have to quarantine the contents. Please click on the link below for further information on reading and homework. Thank you!
Please see the section below if you need to access the Home Learning planning
It has been lovely to meet and welcome your children into Year 1. At the beginning of this term our priority will be to settle them into school and ensure they feel happy and safe.
The Year 1 school day begins at 8.55 and finishes at 3.10. For drop off and pick up arrangements, and further information about the school, please read the Parent Handbook on the parent page.

Lunch and Snack
Until our catering facilities restart, every child will need to bring a packed lunch. Please send this into school in a small bag or lunch bag. They will need their lunch, a bottle of water and a piece of fruit (or veg) for their snack. It would be helpful for your child if their snack is in a separate pot/bag, so that they know what to eat during the morning break.
Every Tuesday, Year 1 will have a PE lesson, either outside or in the hall.
Please can your child come to school wearing their PE kit (from Tuesday 15th Sept), so that they don't have to change in school. (Black or navy shorts/ joggers/ leggings, t-shirt/ school polo top, school jumper/ cardigan and trainers).
Once we have re-assessed the most suitable book level/band for your child, reading books will be sent home, with guidance on how to help support your child with their reading. We will also then be able to assign books to their Bug Club online library.
Homework will be set every week, using Seesaw, whereby teachers can set homework digitally for children to complete on a device at home, which can then be sent back for the teacher to respond to. We will be sending out further information about this over the next few weeks.
Context for Learning
Our contexts this year will be:
|Autumn 1: Memory Box||Autumn 2: Moon Zoom|
|Spring 1: St. David||Spring 2: Super Heroes|
|Summer 1: Rio da Vida||
Summer 2: The Enchanted Woodland
Our context for learning this term is 'St. David'.
To start our new context, we will be learning about who St David was and why he is so important in Wales. We are also hoping to arrange a virtual tour of a local church and learn about places of worship.
