Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 - Spring Term 2019

Year 1 all enjoyed our school trip to Milestones Museum in Basingstoke this week.  We found out about life in the past, by walking through the replica streets, visiting the shops and looking into the houses and learnt how the washing was done in the 1930s.  We followed trails around the museum and searched for clues, as well as dressing up in Victorian costume.  


The children thoroughly enjoyed our World Book Day celebrations when the staff acted out the story of "Wanted! Ralfy Rabbit, Book Burglar" by Emily MacKenzie for the children. The children then followed Ralfy's advice and spent time browsing and enjoying books in our school library. Classroom activites included a wide variety of book and rabbit-themed activities. We hope that the story will have inspired pupils to develop their love of books. Don't forget to spend your special World Book Day book token worth £1. You can spend it on one of this year's special World Book Day publications or put it towards any other book of your choice. Happy shopping!
Of course, you can always borrow books for FREE from our school library or visit the Library in Camberley town centre!

Following on from parents evenings this week here is a reminder of the phonics apps which you might find useful to help support your child with their phonic knowledge in preparation for the phonics screening.

What to bring in each day

Book bag, a transparent/translucent water bottle (water only please!) and a coat - we try to take the children outside in all weather unless there is a torrential downpour. Please make sure all items are clearly named. (Please note that children in Year 1 do not need to bring wellies to school.)


PE Reminders

PE in Year 1 takes place on a Tuesday and a Wednesday.

Please check that trainers still fit and that all PE kit, sweatshirts and other belongings are clearly named.

Please make sure that you remove earrings on PE days as children will not be permitted to take part in PE lessons if they are wearing earrings (for safety reasons).

Long hair should be tied back at all times in school.

Please provide a pair of socks to keep in your child's PE bag to change into if your child wears tights to school. (It can also be useful to have a change of socks if footwear gets a bit soggy in rainy weather!)

Brown joggers (available from Brenda's) or other plain dark coloured joggers may be worn for outdoor PE lessons if the weather is cooler.
