Year 1: 1LS, 1LL, 1NH
Welcome to Year 1
Thank you for all of you who supported our Christmas Fayre on Saturday. It is a huge fundraiser for us and one in which we, in Year 1, rely on to be able to bring a special part of our science curriculum 'alive' in the spring term (keep you in suspense until then!).
The Fayre prep was done on Friday by just 5 lovely MPA mums and the stalls relied on staff being able to man them to make up the parent volunteer shortfall. We have over 600 children in school and we need more MPA members! If you can give some time, even an hour twice in the academic year, to help out, please tell us and we'll pass on your details. Thank you, thank you.
Wednesday 9th October
Our Marvellous Me topic is coming to an end this week and what a lovely few weeks it has been! We have really enjoyed getting to know more about the children and their families. We have discussed our favourite things and explored the different feelings we feel. The children have been learning about their senses in science and created beautiful self portraits in art. This week we have also been thinking about our future through our key text 'A Planet Full of Plastic' and talking about how we can protect our environment.
Next week will start with a huff and a puff as we dive into our new topic of traditional tales. On Monday we would love to share some of the children's favourites stories. Please send them in with any books they would like to share. See below the topic overview to find out more about what we will be doing in the next two weeks.
Parent Craft on Wednesday 25th September
Our first Parent Craft session for Year 1 will be this Wednesday at 2.45pm and will last around half an hour. We will be making family trees so we would be grateful if you could bring in copies of family photographs that they could use. See you there!
Year 1 Curriculum Evening
Thank you for coming along to our curriculum meeting this week. We hope that you enjoyed the evening and came away with a good understanding of what life is like in Year 1.
If you were unable to attend, please find the Power Point below.
How are you getting on with Doodle homework this week? If you need help to access Doodle English let us know.
Monday 9th September
Children have taken reading books home today along with their new reading folder. They were also given bookmarks indicating which colour books they are reading. We continue to promote children's independence in changing their book every morning. If you have any questions about your child’s reading level or you would like advice on how to support your child at home please see the class teacher.
Friday 6th September
It has been lovely to welcome the children into Year 1 this week! We have been so impressed with their Muscliff manners and how well they have settled into their new classes already. We have kick-started our topic 'Marvellous me' this week and have enjoyed sharing the "all about me" boxes and getting to know each other.
A few reminders:
- If you haven't already, please send your child's PE kit to school. Our PE days will be Wednesday and Thursday this half term.
- We look forward to seeing you at our curriculum evening on Wednesday 18th September at 6pm.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

It's been great to see so many of you doing your DoodleMaths this summer. Don't stop now! And if you've just been too busy getting out and about to find that 5minutes, then maybe now is the time to get back into that routine. We'll put some extras on there for you to be getting on with.
Did any of you find any Secret Books hidden around Throop and Muscliff over the last couple of weeks? Mrs H 'planted' about 12 the other day. Keeeeeeeep reading!
See you on Wednesday.
