Welcome to Dippers

We are a Year 1 class.

Our class teachers are Mrs Morris and Mr Hine.

Topic Dates Year 1 2018-2019

Cookery sessions-Summer term

Every Wednesday afternoon your child takes part in a Healthy Food and nutrition session. During this session each week the class is divided in two, 15 children researching and writing about the dish they are going to make and the other half of the class making and tasting the dish. These session are a great way for children to understand where food comes from and how it is prepared. Mrs Haake and Mrs Dow lead these sessions.

We are seeking permission again from you for your child to take part in these activities during Summer Term and would appreciate if you can get the forms back to us as soon as possible as sessions start on April 24.  All ingredients will be provided by school.

Here comes the Summer!

We hope you enjoyed the Spring Break and are ready to have a super summer in Year 1! Last term was so busy! We managed to stay silent for a whole twenty minutes to raise money for a school in Kenya – thank you all for your generous support. Mr Barton, our link with the school, enjoyed telling us all about it and showing us many photographs of Kenya as well as bringing in some of his artefacts.

Nick Hennessey, the storyteller, enthralled us with his clever tales and we were lucky to have a visit from one of our parents to talk to us about Islam.

There are lots to look forward to this term, so watch this space!

In the meantime here are some pictures of some of our recent activities.

Kind regards

Mrs Morris and Mr Hine

Happy New Year!

Welcome back to all our Delightful Dippers. We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are feeling refreshed, ready to learn and have lots of fun in 2019!

In the meantime here is a little photographic review of our time in Year 1 so far.

Kind regards,

Mrs Morris and Mr Hine

 

What a busy week!

We have had lots of fun this week learning about Airport and carrying on with our work on seasonal changes in Science. Don’t forget to bring in any natural items for our science area that you find showing Autumnal changes, such as conkers, leaves etc.

It would be great if you can remember to log on to Bug Club to do some reading and don’t forget to keep practising your user name and password to log into Purple Mash, there are so many fun things for you to do there!

Kind regards,

Mrs Morris and Mr Hine

 

Hello again!

We’ve had a busy week this week and even though we’ve only been Year 1 for two weeks we all seem so much more grown up. Even though we are more grown up we still need our names in everything, including pumps! We do need both our indoor and outdoor PE kits in school everyday.

This week we have started our new topic ‘Airport’. Every Dipper has been allocated a book called ‘Flying High’ in Active Learn (Bug Club), so please try to log on and have a look at it.

Kind regards

Mr Hine and Mrs Morris

 

 

Welcome back!

It is wonderful to see all our Dippers back at school and already having a great time. This week we have been finding out all about our class bird as well as settling into Year 1.

We are getting to know each other very well and are excited about all the new topics we will be exploring. If you want to know what they are then click on the link above!
