Year 1 - Squirrels

Year 1 screening check - information for parents session 21.2.18

Welcome to Squirrels


Welcome to our Squirrels class page.

 

Wow how did we get to the Easter holidays so quickly! Wishing you all a great break and hoping that the wet weather doesn't continue for too much longer!

 

This week the children have been learning about how to keep ourselves safe and linking this to the NSPCC PANTS campaign and the underwear rule. There is plenty of information for you to share with your child at home if you go to www.nspcc.org.uk/ and look at the Pantosaurus song.  

 

Today the children had some special visitors who magically appeared from the past! To finish off our topic we were treat to a visit from Sir Christopher Cockrell and Amelia Earhart. Our visitors were able to bring to life how important they both were within our modern day history. The children were fascinated to learn about what Sir Christopher Cockrell had invented and might ask you to take them on a hovercraft now! They were amazed to hear how brave and fearless Amelia Earhart was and how sad it was that she died tragically while trying to fly around the world. 

 

We had a visit from the Ealing Tennis team on Wednesday, where they finished off the tennis sessions that we have continued in their absence, the children had great fun showing how much they had improved with their tennis skills. They will have come home with a letter offering your child reduced cost tennis lessons, should your child wish to continue.

 

 

In our Maths we have continued to look at measurement. The children have been using a ruler to measure transport pictures and then they measured each other using hands and feet as a unit. Perhaps you could continue this over the holiday? The children could gather items around the house and measure them using a ruler, tape measure or their hands! If you pop into the well known Swedish store in town, the children could pick up one of their free tape measures and have a go using that!!

 

Enjoy the break - don't eat too many Easter eggs and we will look forward to seeing you all on the 16th of April.
