Welcome to Year 1
The adults who help us
Spring Term 2013
This term our theme is 'Journeys. Near and far'. We are finding out about our local area and comparing it to Glinton village. Our core story is Beegu which is a about an alien that has crash landed on Earth and looks for some friends. Later this term we will also use the story of Town mouse and country mouse. You can ask your child to tell you about these stories. We will be sending Beegu home with different children so they can show her their homes and draw and write about her journey to their home.
We are going for a local walk to look at the buildings along Gladstone Street in Peterborough. Then we are going for a visit to Glinton village to look at the buildings there. We will visit the school and the church as well as looking at the houses.
We need to bring our bag back to school every day and change our books on a Tuesday and Friday. It is very important to read with your child for five minutes every day and talk to them about the story you have read.
Outdoor PE is on a Monday and Indoor PE is on Tuesday or Thursday. Please make sure your child has suitable clothing and trainers which are all clearly labelled.
There are still some children who do not bring PE kit.
Inside PE children need a t-shirt and shorts that are above the knee or leggings.
Please can you ensure that all children’s clothing is clearly labelled with their name.
This term the children will learn how to keep themselves safer in a variety of personal safety contexts. They will begin by identifying those people they have chosen for themselves who they trust and who they would feel comfortable talking to if they have a worry. This will be used to develop a Safety Circle. They will be able to assess how safe they feel in the school building and grounds, and will also consider safer places to play outside school. They will learn about their sixth sense and how to use their senses to help keep themselves safer. Children will learn names for body parts, and how to distinguish between ‘yes’ and ‘no’ touches. They will explore ‘good’ and ‘bad’ secrets and tricks. They will practise assessing risk, and will develop strategies for keeping safer, including learning about and practising assertiveness skills.
