Welcome to Year 1
Welcome back to term five. We hope that you had a relaxing and joyful Easter break.
It was a pleasure meeting you all during parents’ consultation evenings and looking at the progress the children are making, if for any reason you were unable to attend, please make an appointment via the office as soon as possible.
We think the highlight of term 4 had to be our chicks and seeds and the enthusiasm shown and great care the children took of these living things.
Last term the children took part in a number of assemblies, acting, singing and speaking and made us all very proud. Thank you to those parents who have supported their children with learning readings for assemblies.
The children learnt the Easter story and took part in a successful egg hunt as well as taking part in lots of Easter themed craft activities.
This term our topic is Where I Live or as we like to call it ‘Welcome to Canterbury’. We will be visiting lots of local features and will need some additional adults to support us with this. Another letter will follow about this. Since we will be getting out and about this term, it is essential that children get into the habit of bringing a coat with them. As we live in England and the weather is subject to change, it may be gloriously sunny when you leave home but cool and wet later. All children should have a light coat for the summer and it needs to be in school every day.

Key Dates for this term:
Trip to Toddlers Cove- Tuesday 19th March.
DT Day: Friday 29th March
Please note there is no RE celebration this term.
Term 3 DT Day - Existing products and designs
On DT day we look specifically at Superhero logo's and masks. We considered how good we thought existing products were and why costumes were designed the way they were. With all this in mind, we set about designing our own superhero outfits which we made prototypes of later in the day.
