Welcome to 1R
Your class teachers are Ms Rice & Miss Bell
Our theme this half term is ‘Do You Know Your Pet?’
This half term our theme has a focus on Science. We will be learning everything there is to know about animals with the help of Percy the Park-Keeper. We will hopefully have a virtual tour of Animal Care in Lancaster and meet the pets that are waiting for a new home. We will also be taking a walk up to Barley Cop Woods to search for wild animal homes. In Design and Technology, we will design and make a new water bowl for Ms.Rice’s two dogs Lola and Dylan.
PE in 1R is on a Friday afternoon with Mr.Sorrell. Please make sure that your child has a labelled PE kit in school every week.
We love to read in 1R. We encourage the children to read every night at home. When they have finished their book, we recommend that you ask them questions about the book. We will change books three times a week. In Key Stage 1 we have a 100 book challenge. Each time your child reads at home, sign their reading record and we will fill in a square on the challenge sheet. Your child will receive prizes the more they read.
We are very happy to speak to you if you have any concerns about your child’s learning.
