Imagine floating high above land and see on a bed of clouds, silently sweeping by on a billowing breeze.

Back down to earth, let’s take a walk outdoors. But what should we wear? Wellington boots? A sun hat? Maybe a warm coat? How do we know what the weather will be like today?

Read and write poems and postcards...and, if you don’t like today’s weather report, why not write your own?

Send a message by balloon. Up, up and away it goes, high in the sky and over the rainbow. How far will the wind blow it? Where will it land and who will find it?

What weather do you prefer? Sunshine, snow, storms or showers? Get your wellingtons on—let’s go!

Homework:

We ask that any homework for this half term to be completed and brought into school no later than Monday 15th October.   Some homework ideas have been attached and the children can choose to do one long project over the half term or a selection of smaller projects throughout the topic.  Drawings, writing, research from the Internet, models or photographs are some of the ways that the children can complete these tasks.  Some of the children will prefer to think of their own homework ideas based on nature.

Spellings- The children will be given a list of spellings to learn each Friday. They will be tested the following Friday before getting a new list.  The spellings will relate to the phonics sessions that the children have taken part in that week.

Library- Year one children will go to the library every Wednesday to choose 3 books.  These need to be returned every week so that your child can change them regularly. 

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

Open mornings- Elm Wood has an open morning every Thursday from 8.45am.  This is a great opportunity for you to come into the classroom to look at displays, see your child’s work in their books and speak to the class teacher.

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.

Look at our learning environment.
