Things to remember
Our teacher is Miss Connor
Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Higham
Our P.E. Day is Tuesday
Our Dance day is Friday
Children will need P.E. kits on both of these days. For Tuesday's lesson children will be outside so tracksuits would be more appropriate as the weather is getting colder.
Spelling Homework will be given out on Monday with the test on Friday so please practise with your child. 
Children should be reading and practising their phonic skills daily at home. This is very important as reading and comprehension is a vital skill.
In Year 1 the children will be sitting their Phonics Screening check in June. Please ensure you continue to practise these sounds.
Using directions
We have been learning all about the Arctic in Geography and have looked at how people used compasses to help them travel around.
We made our own Arctic maps using different things from the Arctic such as polar bears and igloos as starting points. We then drew a map and wrote down the directions such as North, South, East and West. 
When our map was finish we had a go at programming the beebots to folow the route of our maps. We all did so well and managed to get our Beebot to its destination.
Come and See Assembly
We invited our parents to our special assembly to show them what we have been learning in RE. Our assembly was all about special people. We told the story of Jesus' Presentation in the temple and how he met Anna Simeon. We also drew pictures of people who are special to us.
Today we visited the Walker Art Gallery to see all of the lovely paintings and sculptures. This linked to our art topic of Sculptures from last term. Whilst we were there we were given a session and taught how to draw our own portrait.
