Year 1 Week 2 2013

Moving Forward, In Leaps And Bounds!
Welcome back. We hope that you have had a good holiday. Thank you to everyone who helped their child to complete a Christmas Diary. We all enjoyed reading them.

Our topic for the first part of the term is “Winter” and, this week, the children have made winter trees by blowing ink.

We have bought lots of new Oxford Reading Tree books for the children to take home to read. They are enjoying getting to know the new characters.

For homework this week, we would like the children to look around for signs of winter. This might include taking photographs of things associated with winter like snow, trees or icicles. Please be as inventive as you like and have lots of fun — especially if it snows!

The children will notice that the weather is getting colder and that this changes the clothes they wear.
