Welcome to Birch Class!
Our teaching team are very much looking forward to welcoming you into class. We have prepared a welcome video to show you what to do when you arrive at school, how to get to our classroom, and all the little things like hanging up your coat etc that will help you feel happy and confident on the first day back at school in September. Our teacher is Mrs Dunne and our teaching assistant is Mrs Hitt.
We have lots of fantastic opportunities to learn inside and outside the classroom.
Our main topics in Year 1 will be:
Autumn Term 1- Toys
Autumn 2- Space
Spring 1-Fairytales and Forest
Spring 2- Animals
Summer 1- Dinosaurs
Summer 2 – London
- PE with our sports coach Danny Williams is on Thursday afternoons
- Dance or gymnastics is on a Wednesday afternoon.
- Outdoor Learning is on a Friday afternoon
The children’s PE kits need to be brought into school on a Monday and left in school for the week just in case there are any changes!
Please ensure that your child has the following named items in school: PE kit - navy shorts, yellow PE t-shirt, navy tracksuit top and bottoms (essential for outdoor PE), spare socks, plimsolls, or trainers (essential for outdoor PE); book bag; water bottle and ear tape should they need it for P.E.
We always welcome and appreciate parental support with both individual reading and outdoor learning, so please do let us know if you would like to help regularly or even just occasionally. If you have any expertise related to any of our topics this year that you would like to share your knowledge with the children, we would be delighted to hear from you too!
Many thanks for your continued support.
Mrs Dunne & Mrs Hitt
