Black History Week
Last week in school each class learnt about a significant person from the past related to black history.
Our class learnt about Mae Jemison, who was the first African-American woman to go to space in 1992.
We learn about her mission with 6 other astronauts who went aboard Space Shuttle Endeavour to fix a satellite and complete experiments.
We made fact files about Mae Jemison, learnt about rocket launches, coloured pictures of her and also made our own Space Shuttle Endeavour models.
Odd Socks Day for Friendship Week
We wore odd socks on Friday as part of Friendship Week which this year was focused on respect. We discussed what respect was and who or what we should respect both at school and at home. The children came up with lots of ideas, including parents, siblings, grandparents, teachers, dinner ladies, friends, ourselves and also things such as toys, books and furniture.
We each decorated a sock to show how we are all the same in some ways but also all different.
French Day 2018
We have been celebrating European Languages Day 2018 all week by doing the register in French, learning some simple greetings and learning to count to 10 in French!
We made French flags, took part in a colouring competition and have been doing French Maths!
Welcome to 1P
I am Miss Pearson and I am the class teacher in 1P. We are lucky to have a lovely teaching assistant called Mrs Davidson from Monday-Thursday and Mrs Wade will be in class every Friday. We also have Miss Fort who comes to help every Monday morning and she will teach on a Wednesday morning.
We will also have a student helper Monday and Tuesday until Christmas which means there are lots of teachers to help with all of our work!
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE ASK!
IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW...
PE is on Tuesday afternoons - white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps - these need to ALL be NAMED. Earrings need to be removed on Tuesdays.
Appropriate clothing - please ensure you send your child to school with a coat and suitable shoes - we do go outside in all weathers, especially now we have our new outdoor area.
Mornings - drop off your child at the door on the playground (down the 2nd set of steps).
Afternoons - pick up your child by waiting near the fence (1st set of steps). When I see you I will send your child out of the classroom door.
Reading Books - will be changed as often as required Mon-Thurs. Please write a comment or simply initial to show it has been read. Send your child's reading book in even if it has not been read as we will read in school also.
Homework - a SPELLINGS sheet will be sent each Friday. These should be practiced at home and the sheet returned the following Friday, when a little informal test will be given in the afternoon.
On that sheet will be a different PE TASK each week to be completed each night. This will take a minute and is to help towards our aim of more physical activity each week.
