FOREST SCHOOL INFORMATION
Next Thursday 17th September will be our first Forest School session.
Please can your child come to school wearing clothes suitable for the outdoors. These should be old comfortable clothes; joggers, leggings and a long-sleeved T-shirt; and trainers. Please could they have waterproof trousers on too.(all items named)
They will need wellies (named) and a waterproof coat (named) in a named carrier bag. They do not need to bring their book bag in but they will need their water bottle.
PE Autumn 1
PE will be on Friday afternoons, starting next Friday 18th, the first full time day.
The children will need to come in wearing their PE kit; white T-shirt or polo shirt, blue shorts, white socks and trainers. They may wear leggings or joggers and a school/navy sweatshirt over the top if the weather is chilly. They will still need their coat, water bottle and book bag.
It would be a good idea for the children to keep a spare set of clothes in school in a drawstring bag, so they could use their PE bag for this. The bag would stay on their peg and only come home at half term.
Spare clothes are useful for various reasons; a child may have a 'little accident' or they may fall over on a rainy day and get wet and muddy. They may get muddy during a forest school session or they may become poorly and be sick!
These clothes do not have to be school uniform, just something comfy and practical, such as leggings and a long-sleeved T-shirt, pants and socks.
If all items of clothing, as well as the drawstring bag could be named please! You can send these in this week or next, Thank you! LK
Autumn 1 2020
Our topic work this half term is called 'Water, water, everywhere' and is planned together with Class 2. Classes 1 and 2 will form a 'bubble' with separate play-times to Key Stage 2 (Classes 3 & 4), which will form the other 'bubble'. If your child has an older sibling in Year 3,4 5 or 6 please make sure they know that they won't see their brother or sister in school at the moment. This is such a shame because the older children usually love to see and look out for the new intake.
The first 'mini-topic' which will run for the first 2 part-time weeks is called 'Me, you, us' as we will be getting to know each other, talking about ourselves, our feelings and our families; finding out about new friends, sharing & taking turns and learning to bond and work as a team. Our link to the water topic will be 'Water for a healthy Me'; and their will be a big focus on hand washing and the importance of drinking plenty of fresh water.
We will learn the NHS hand washing song which teaches the best way to clean hands thoroughly.
Learning opportunities this half term
The document below is an outline of the learning opportunities your child will have this half term. There is also a sheet for you to contribute your own observations & knowledge of your child to help build up a profile of their learning and development. You can complete it over the next six weeks and email it to me towards the half term break. I really appreciate your input in building an accurate picture of your child's interests, learning and development.
