Welcome to Year 1- Class 4 (some important information for the year).

The team in class 4 is:

Class teacher- Miss Mykytiuk

Our topic this half term will be 'Bright Lights, Big City'

What do you know about England’s capital city? Let’s find out all about London, including its History, transport and famous landmarks.

Step back in time and discover what happened in the Great Fire of London. Where did it start? How did it end? Create a model of the bakery on Pudding Lane…

…then burn it to the ground to recreate the Great Fire. Stand well back and watch how the flames spread, London’s burning! London’s burning! Fire, fire! Fire, fire!

Library- At the moment we are not using bookbags to reduce the risk of infection. We will be reading with the children in school and changing personal reading books regularly. 

PE- Year 1 will have PE sessions once a week on Monday mornings.  All children require an indoor and outdoor P.E kit for these sessions.  

Open mornings- I am afraid we are not holding open morning at the moment.

School uniform- Can we please ask for all items of clothing (and P.E kits) to be labelled with your child’s name or initials.
