- About Us
After half term we will be holding our first parents evening on Wednesday 7th November. There will be a list of time slots available at the office from Thursday 11th October onward. Please feel free to contact or visit the office to write your child's name down for the time slot you require.
The allocated times will be from 8.00am to 9.00am and then 3.30pm to 6.00pm on the evening. Each teacher has their own time sheet, so please select your child's morning teacher when choosing a time.
Each child will be allocated a strict 10-minute time slot to discuss your child's progress. Due to time constraints, if you feel you need additional time then you would need to make a further appointment for another day.
We look forward to discussing how well your child is doing and thank you for your continued support.
Year 1 Team
This week we have been learning all about the country of Northern Ireland as part of our United Kingdom topic. We know that the capital city is called Belfast and can now name a few of its landmarks, including the 'Giant's Causeway' and the legend of Finn McCool.
In P.E we learnt a few steps to an Irish Jig. We enjoyed the tempo of the music and working with our partner to complete 'swings'.
Last week, we rounded the week off nicely by participating in Muddy Mayhem II. We all had an amazing time and can't wait till next year to do it all again!
Year 1 had a fantastic first week back after what sounded like an amazing summer holiday! The children enjoyed getting to know their new teacher and quickly settled down into Year 1 smoothly. We have been working on our number formation, forming our letters and recapping our phonic sounds.
Last Friday, we all went on a walk to Crook library where we were able to pick our own book to take away and listen to stories read to us by the librarian. We were very sensible and impressed our new teachers with our manners and great behaviour.
In Mrs Dodds' class, we have been reading the book 'Dear Zoo' and have been retelling the story using puppets and role play. We have written our own version and shared it with the reception class.
We have also become authors and written our own stories called 'Dear Farm'!
