Welcome to France! (Year One)
In Class France our teacher has taught us how to be resilient and to always try our hardest, even when faced with a challenge! We look after each other and are always there to help our friends. Always do your best to be in school everyday. Attendance matters!
Our France class teacher is Mrs Quantick and our amazing teaching assistants are Miss Jones, Mrs Cunningham and Mrs Grimes. If you need any support at all with anything regarding your child or their learning please come and speak to the team. Don’t forget to follow our class page on Twitter @GSPSFrance for keeping up to date with daily class updates.
Please remember to bring in your school water bottle every day. Water is so important to keep our brains working and soaking up all that new knowledge! Water bottles will be sent home every night to be washed and refilled ready for the next day.
Topics in Year One
In Year One we learn so much! We have three main topics over the year which we cover in our History, Geography, Art and DT lessons. These are; Toys in Autumn, Poles Apart in Spring and Flight in Summer. We also enjoy curriculum visits to some interesting and fun places.
France have PE on a Friday.
Please make sure that your child comes to school with their school PE kit in a bag with their name on which can be kept on their peg outside the classroom. Children will change for PE in school. Children may wear a tracksuit for outdoor PE.
France will receive their homework every Friday. It will consist of Phonics homework which follow sounds we have been learning in class, some Maths work and some English homework. The more tasks you complete the more Dojos you will be awarded with.
We love to read in Year 1 and are so happy when children tell us about their favourite books. To improve your child’s reading it is so important to read with them every day, even 5 minutes can make all the difference. Really focus on asking questions about their book as this will help them with their reading comprehension. Children should bring their book bags everyday to school so reading records can be checked. Books will be changed every Monday and Thursday. If you need any advice with Phonics or your child’s reading please come and speak to Mrs Quantick!
