Hello and Happy New Year!

We hope you had a fantastic holidays, it was wonderful to see Year 1 so excited to be back to school!

What do you call a dinosaur with an extensive vocabulary?
A Thesaurus.

Spring term will be a busy but exciting term. We have started our new topic, ‘Dinosaur Planet’, which will see Year 1 time-travel back to the Mesozoic Era to find out about some magnificent but fearsome creatures: dinosaurs! We will all become expert paleontologists, digging deep to discover dazzling dinosaur facts. Our new topic will see us pay a visit to the Great North Museum later this term – more information to follow!

As well as ‘Dinosaur Planet’, we will spend the end of Spring term doing a short, geography-based topic all to do with London. Although we have no trips to London planned, we may see if Her Majesty is free to pay us a visit…

Some other important information for the upcoming term:
– Please ensure reading books are read at home and reading diaries are filled in, as well as sending reading books into school every day
– Our PE sessions will be alternate Tuesday afternoons and every Friday afternoon (this session will be with a cricket coach). Can you please make sure PE kits are in school for these days
– Can you please make sure your child does not bring toys into school. We understand how precious they can be and would hate to see them broken!

As always, we can’t wait for yet another brilliant term with the little people!
