Welcome to Kingfishers Class Page
We are a Year 1 class
Our class teacher is Miss Parsons
Welcome back! We have had a wonderful start to our second term in Year 1. I have really enjoyed listening to all of your Christmas news and all about the lovely gifts that the children received. Thank you again for all of the lovely gifts that I received, I am truly overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity.
This week we have learnt all about Louis Pasteur and why he was important to life in the present.
Next week, our topic is My Body. We will be looking at how to keep healthy and why it is important to look after ourselves.
Can all children have both their outdoor and indoor P.E kits in school with them at all times, with all items clearly labelled. Our P.E lessons are on a Monday and Thursday.
During this week, we have had lots of missing cardigans and jumpers. Please ensure that your child’s name is clearly labelled in all items of their uniform so that we can return them as soon as possible.
Thank you for a super first week back Kingfishers!
Have a lovely weekend,
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.

Enjoying a walk looking for different materials
We have had a wonderful week and have had lots of exciting things happening within our classroom!
We have now started practising for our Christmas show and lines for the show will be going out next week. We have already been talking about using our big voices and the Kingfishers are amazing at remembering to use theirs!
We have reached the last week of our space topic and still have lots of fun things to do. But most of all, the Kingfishers are looking forward to ‘Anyone but the Parents’ morning. On Monday 19th November, a visitor can come and share all of the lovely things that we do in class from 9am.
Have a lovely weekend,
What a lovely time we have had over the past few weeks! From planting bulbs at Sudley House to visiting Liverpool Hope University for a fun phonics morning.
We also had a visit from a lady who came to talk to us about road safety. We think it is very important as the nights get darker to remember all of things we can do to make sure that we are seen if we are riding our bikes or scooters. Ask your child what they need for a safe journey, I know they will remember!
Bulb planting at Sudley House
We have reached the end of our first half-term as big Year 1 children. You have all been fantastic and I can’t wait for what is to come before Christmas. Well done!
When we return to school, our topic will be Space. We will be looking at the different planets and even aliens that love underpants! If any parents or carers have any knowledge or skills surrounding space, then please let me know. Thank you!
Have a brilliant weekend,
The Animal Lady Visit
The Gruffalo Finger Puppets
What a wonderful week we have had!
We have completed lots of fun science activities for our non-curriculum day and discovered how electricity flows, how some creatures can walk on water and even how to make our very own rainbow. It was very exciting!
Next week our topic changes to The Gruffalo. We will be learning all about the characters in the story, creating a story map and creating brilliant art work.
Have a super weekend,

We visit our school library every Monday, please make sure your child has their reading book in school with them to ensure they can select a new one.
We now have P.E every Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child has both their indoor and outdoor kit with them in school at all times, as the weather is getting colder we will be starting to wear outdoor P.E kids for any outdoor P.E sessions. The children also have a gymnastics session on a Wednesday afternoon and will be sent home in their outdoor P.E kits. Please return their kit to school the following day.
Spelling books and spellings will be given out each Monday and need to be returned to school each Friday. This will start on Monday 24th September.
If your child already knows how to spell the words given, then please concentrate on letters being formed correctly, sitting on the line and starting each letter at the correct point.
Homework files will be given out on Friday 21st September with your child’s first piece of homework in. Each Friday your child will be given a piece of homework alternating between Maths and English which you will find on the back of the newsletter. This should be completed in pencil and be kept in their homework file. Guidelines of how to mark your child’s homework and resources to support them are at the front of your child’s file. Homework does not need to be returned to school until Wednesday 5th December.
Enjoying a walk around our playground to keep us fit and healthy!
What an exciting week we have had, from making rain gauges to creating our very own hot air balloons.
Next week we will be carrying on with our topic of Airport and will be looking at the history of flight.
After school clubs start next week and I am sure that you are all very excited!
If your child is attending Dance club, please make sure that they have a spare set of clothes to change into for the session.
