Elm Wood Primary School

Welcome to Year 1 Class 4

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

The team in class 4 is:

Class teacher- Miss Mykytiuk

Class teaching assistant- Miss Mair, Mr Berry and Miss Hartley

Our topic this half term will be 'Splendid Skies'. 

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!

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.
