Bluebell Class Parent Information

What are we learning in Term 1?


Our topic this term is Memory Box!


Can you remember being small? Can you remember being a baby and learning to crawl? Do you recall maybe a favourite toy, teddy bear or best loved book?


This term is all about you, how you've changed over time and who is important to us in our lives.


In Science we are going to be learning about the parts of the body as well as our senses. Discovering how humans change from babies, to toddlers, to children and then adults.


In History we are going to be learning about the past and how things have changed over time.


In Art we will be creating family portraits and making a memory box to store you're lovely childhood memories.

What homework is given in Year 1?


At the beginning of each term the children will have their homework sent home in their home learning book. Inside the book will be a variety of cross curricula activities linked to the current topic. The children are welcome to complete one activity or as many as they would like and evidence their learning in their book. Homework is then due in in the final week of each term and will be returned to them at the start of the following term with new homework as well as feedback of what they had achieved in the previous term. 


How do we reward children in Bluebell Class?


We believe in positive praise and always seek opportunities to reward the children. The children start the day on the “sunflower” and if they do something special they are rewarded by being put onto the “honey pot”. They then receive a sticker and share their good work with the class.
