Welcome to P1
P1 is a very exciting year in a child's education; they learn how to do so many new things and enjoy developing friendships with their classmates. It is wonderful to have our new P1 children with us; they are settling in so well and are coping brilliantly with all the new routines. We are looking forward to the year ahead.
Our initial topic is 'Starting School'. To begin with we are going to focus on making new friends, working as a team and getting to know our surroundings. We will be learning to rhyme, match, listen, count, recognise numbers, develop our fine motor skills, learn some letter sounds and much, much more! We plan to enjoy as much outdoor learning as we can, let's hope the weather is good to us!
Everyone should now have their child's log in details for Seesaw. Please go to the following link for a guide to Seesaw. https://www.cairnshillps.co.uk/notes/
We are going to be learning all about healthy eating and how to keep our bodies healthy. We also learn about autumn and the changes that it brings.
We will carry on with our Jolly phonics scheme, before you know it we will be reading! We have great fun playing numeracy and literacy games. These are a favourite! During PE we will be learning to move to music, hop, skip and jump. It is a busy day here in P1, it is a cert that we will be tired by the end of our fun packed day.
Christmas is our topic for December and we just love it! Santa has requested that we help him out with a few jobs as some of the elves are sick. If you come to our classroom you will see that we are busy writing cards, making lists, making toys and of course wrapping them. Santa will be very pleased with us! We have been enjoying all the festive songs and stories that come along with Christmas. It really is the most wonderful time of the year.
December also brings reading books, this is a very exciting part to our month. It truly is amazing how the children learn to read but it takes a lot of hard work on their behalf. We just love meeting the Robinson family in our Oxford Reading Tree scheme.
It is hard to believe that the end to our first term is here.
