Shwmae Year 1,
Our new Context for Learning this term is Enchanted Woodland.
This week, we will focus on learning about different types of trees and applying our mathematical skills to measure them.
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
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!
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.
Also, visit our Twitter page for regular updates, photos and reminders! https://twitter.com/LakesidePrmY1

Lunch and Snack
Your child will need a packed lunch or you can order their lunch via ParentPay. Every day, they will need to bring 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.
