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 SEN teaching assistant- Miss Hall

Class teaching assistant- Mrs Charlton and Miss Taylor

Thank you to  everyone for another fantasic half term. The children have learnt so much about London and they have really enjoyed learning about Paddington Bear. Thank you to all the parents who attended The Year 1 Phonics Meeting. 

Our topic after the half term will be 'The Enchanted Woodland'. 

|f you go down to the woods today you’re sure of a BIG surprise!
Foxes and badgers, voles and mice, beady-eyed owls in the swaying tree tops. Beneath the leaves are tiny footprints...animal or imp? You decide!

Deciduous or evergreen? What can you find? Can you match a leaf to its tree? Can you match a petal to its flower?

Let’s build a den, stick by stick and branch by branch. Or we could make a teeny tiny home for a woodland fairy!

Then lets party down in the woods, with Mr Fox and all his woodland friends. We’d better not get lost...let’s leave a trail of conkers as we go!

At last its time to rest by the woodland fire, listening to stories and toasting our sweet, gooey marshmellows. Yum, yum!

We ask that any homework for this half term to be completed and brought into school no later than Friday 17th May.   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 Monday 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.
