Friday 27th November.
Learner of the week....
For being so focussed on his learning and becoming so much more independent with his work. He has tried hard to work out answers to subtraction number stories even though he missed a few lessons! Well done and keep up this brilliant focus and independence!
Thursday 26th November - science fun!
We carried out an investigation this afternoon to find out what material would be best to make an umbrella for Ted. We looked at these materials - paper, cloth, foil, plastic bag and felt. We predicted which one we thought would be the most waterproof. Then we tested each material adding 10 drops of water using a pipette. Can you remember which material would be the best one to make an umbrella for Ted? Which material was the least waterproof?

Wednesday 11th November.
This week in science, we have been exploring the properties of different materials. Thinking about what words we could use to describe what the materials looked like and felt like. We even learnt a new word: transparent.
Friday 6th November.
The children have all had a really good first week back at school and settled back into their routines. We have had a busy week learning about materials in science, finding out our new book for English and creating firework pictures for art.
Home Learning books and this terms newsletter have been sent home today with the children. They are also attached below too.
Learner of the week.........
A big well done to our learner of the week. You have come back to school with such a positive manner and have been ready for learning. We have been so impressed with your phonics learning especially using special friends in your writing. You came up with some brilliant ideas about our new book just from looking at a picture. Keep up your great learning!
We have seen some brilliant home learning this term. From art pictures of the 4 seasons to practising writing letters and numbers. The children enjoyed sharing their work with each other and talking about what they had done. Have a look at our great work below!
Monday 28th September
A quick reminder that tomorrow (Tuesday 29th September) the children will be having individual photos taken in school. They will need to come to school in their school uniform and NOT their PE kit. Thank you.
Friday 11th September.
I have been so proud of how well the children have adapted to new routines in year 1. They have all worked so hard this week in all the different subjects we have been learning.
Today, the children will be coming home with their Home Learning books. This will have some ideas for you to work through at home this term linked to our learning in school. This can be kept at home but brought back into school on Monday 19th October so we can share each other’s work. Please find a copy of the Home Learning below.
There will also be some reading books coming home today. Please keep these at home to read until next Friday when they will be changed. It may be helpful if children could bring a book bag or small rucksack with them on a Friday so that the reading books can be easily transported between home and school.
You will find another sheet in their home learning books too. It is a challenge sheet to complete at home if you wish and brought back into school once it is completed.
Please ensure that children come to school with a water bottle each day so they can stay hydrated. We are now receiving the free fruit for schools daily so children are able to have this during morning break.
Thank you for your continued support.
Have a lovely weekend.
It has been lovely to see everyone back in school. The children have had a great few days in Lime class and have settled well into Year 1. We are looking forward to a fantastic year together!
Please take a look at our class newsletter for Term 1 below. It has lots of important information on it as well as what we will be learning about this term.
Reading books - on a Friday, your child will be bringing home 2 or 3 books to keep for the week. These will then need to be returned the following Friday.
Home Learning will be set next week and is to be completed throughout the term. It is due on Monday 19th October.
PE will be on Tuesdays and children need to come to school in their PE kits. As we move towards Autumn it will be important for children to wear dark tracksuit trousers and their school jumper to stay warm. Trainers will also be more practical and comfortable to wear all day. Earrings need to be taken out or covered at home.
Please ensure that any clothing and belongings brought into school are clearly labelled including water bottles, lunch boxes, book bags, PE kits, school uniform and coats.
Please ensure your child brings a filled water bottle into school everyday.
Please remember to use the lime email limeteacher@west-Malling.kent.sch.uk if you have any questions or for any information you need to give to us.
Thank you for your continued support.
