04/06/19 - Welcome Back

Welcome back, we hope everyone had a lovely half term.


We are on the final countdown now! In 7 and a half weeks time your children will be ready to move up to Y2. For the first two weeks we are continuing with our previous topic of Grand Designs. This is due to the first half term being so short.


Our new topic will commence in week 3 and will be called 'Growing Up' where children will focus on plants, parts of plants, how they grow and have the opportunity to complete a number of investigations. We will also be going on a school trip to Hyde Hall to look at plants and learn new facts.


The Phonics Screening test will be completed the week commencing 10th June. Please do not worry about this, the children are very used to the different types of words and sound buttoning. We hope the children enjoyed completing their homework based around this.


Thank you for your continued support

29/04/19 - Welcome Back

Welcome back to a very short half term! This half term the topic will be 'Grand Designs' and the children will be learning all about different houses and homes and comparing modern day homes with those in the Victorian times.


We have a visit from Mrs Brown to show the children around a 'Victorian mansion' and explain her role as a servant in the second week.


Do not forget week 1 is a 4 day week - Friday 3rd May is an Inset Day

Week 2 is another 4 day week - Monday 6th May is bank holiday

Week 3 is a normal week (finally!)

Week 4 is a 4 day week for children as Thursday 23rd May is now a polling day. Staff will be in school training and preparing resources!


Hopefully the sun will be out by then! Hope everyone had a lovely Easter break!


Year One Team!

Welcome back to the second half of our Spring term. As a school, we have decided to use our twitter page to communicate class photos and news to parents. Please make sure you follow us -  @AGInfschool to keep updated!


This half term our topic is 'Wonderful Weather' and the children will be learning all about different weather types, seasons, how these differ around the world and touching on extreme weather. Feel free to speak to your children about any of these throughout the half term and we hope they enjoy telling you all the things they have been learning when they come home.
