Where is the time going?!

We hope you have enjoyed the half term and made some lovely memories.



This term, our topic is ‘To infinity and beyond’. We start our topic with a mobile Planetarium visiting school to provide us with a unique experience into the world beyond. We will be organising a class event ‘Space day’ with more information to follow. Watch this space!



We will continue to do P.E. on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please make sure your child has a labelled PE kit on those days, but we recommend leaving them in school as sessions may take place on other days. Please provide long trousers, t-shirt, a jumper and outdoor footwear for our outdoor sessions. For indoor sessions we will be barefoot, but shorts may be useful.

If your child has their ears pierced, please can you tape\or a plaster over them, if they are unable to be taken out before school.


Back packs

Back packs are not a requirement for year 1. All your children need to bring to school daily is their book bag and water bottle which is to be filled with water only. Our peg space is becoming a health and safety issue as coats are falling to the floor as a result of the bags taking up so much space.



You should all be familiar with your child’s Google Classroom account now and should see the weekly homework assignments on there. If you have any questions, please ask. Mrs Hughes will be setting the weekly homework and will ensure tasks are uploaded by Thursday afternoon.



We have noticed there are children who have yet to read a book using our new online method. If you need assistance with accessing Rising Stars, please ask Mrs Hughes and she will help you with this. Please read with your children as often as you can, we recommend 5/10 minutes a day.

Reading books will be changed weekly – on Thursdays.


Please note: for us to know your child requires a new book, please click ‘finished’. Once you have clicked finished, you can still access the books under a new tab ‘books I’ve read’ so you can re visit them at your leisure.


We also hope that you are finding the bookmarks, found inside your child’s reading record, useful in developing your child’s understanding and comprehension skills.


Space Day

We are excited to share with you that as part of our enrichment of the curriculum, Year 1 will have Space Day on Tuesday 28th March. On this day we will be working off our normal timetable. The children are welcome to come dressed up in a space day style costume. Please do not feel the need to purchase a costume especially for this day, as we will also be handing out masks the children can decorate at home if they wish to use it as their costume. We would ask if all children could please bring in a small plastic bottle with a lid on this day as we are intending to make a galaxy in a bottle as one of our enrichment activities.


Thank you,


Leopards team 😊
