Welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely summer break and are excited to start the new academic year! This week in Yorkshire we have been exploring the wonders of space after an exciting letter appeared on our desks from NASA. NASA asked for our help in the development of an exciting new space school, so this week we got creative and blasted off into a learning journey of space where we explored the different planets and even got to create our own! The children packed their space suitcases and investigated what essential items astronauts need to take into space. They also researched and learnt about Neil Armstrong and his first steps on the moon. Next week we will be writing a letter back to NASA to inform them of all the wonderful things we have learnt about the solar system, and most importantly, to inform the astronauts at NASA what they need for their own space adventure!
The children have had an excellent start to Year 1 so far and have settled in brilliantly!
· Remember you may continue to bring your child into the classroom on a Monday morning if you wish.
· Please ensure that your child’s wellies are labelled and on their pegs all year for Outdoor Learning.
· Please can you also ensure that your child has the appropriate seasonal P.E kit with every item labelled.
· To ensure our Reading areas are exciting and engaging we would really like to put up some photos of the children reading in a special/comfortable place. We would be really grateful if you could send in any photos of your children reading to put up on display.
The Year 1 Team.
