Teddy bears galore


What a wonderful, fun packed 2¬†weeks we’ve had! We have used labels and captions, adjectives and sentences to describe our bears. The children investigated our school to find a good picnic spot, made sandwiches and prepared a feast to share with their furry friends! They have used bears to develop counting, adding and subtracting skills and our Home Learning has been spectacular. Bears are really proving to be a motivation for learning in Year 1.

Welcome Back

Welcome back Year 1. We have been hearing all about your holidays and I am pleased to say that the children have settled back into school routines beautifully. We have had our Welcome Meeting this week and we were thrilled to see so many of you there, thank you, as always, for your continuous support as we work together to provide the children with the best learning experiences that we can. We will send home the hand-outs to anyone who was unable to attend and if you have any queries please come and see us.

Next week we will be leading a Liturgy on Creation and would love to share this with any parents or carers who are available. The children will be bringing home invitations and we look forward to seeing some of you there. The Liturgy is on Tuesday 16th September.

The children have been very excited to bring in their teddies as part of our learning context on “Bears”. They have used observational drawing skills to create representations of their bears and next week we will be preparing a Teddy Bears’ Picnic. The children will need to bring their bears to school again on Wednesday 17th and I look forward to sharing news about the teddy bears’ activities with you in our next post.
