Term 6 Overview
Please ensure PE kits are in school with all items being CLEARLY NAMED. Also remove any earrings and ensure long hair is tied back. Please check your child's PE kit at the end of each term to ensure all parts fit.
**Children are allowed to bring their PE kits home weekly or at the end of each term. If your child brings their PE kit home on a Friday, please ensure it is washed and returned to school on the Monday.**
Please read with your child for a minimum of 10 minutes every day and sign/comment in your child's learning journal. This is a time for your child to read and show off their reading skills to you.
Each Monday and Thursday your child will receive a new reading book. Please listen to your child read and ask them questions about what they have read to enhance their understanding of the text. In school we check the children's comprehension through a quiz using the program Accelerated Reader. You will see a score in your child's journal to show how they did with this. If your child needs further practise to pass the quiz then we may ask for you to continue reading the same book for a little longer.
Books will be changed on a Monday and a Thursday
We will be sending new spellings home every week (these will be recorded in your child's Learning Journal). Please help your child practise their spellings throughout the week to ensure they are ready for their spellings quiz on a Friday.

Yearly Overview Year 1 - What will we be learning over the year?
Collective Worship Term 6
As a Catholic School, we attach the greatest importance to Collective Worship in the life of our school. We give our children opportunities to grow in faith, love and compassion to Jesus by reflecting the true meanings of Jesus' words.
This term our Collective Worship will be based on celebrating the life of St Joseph and asking Him for help, encourage us to always do the right things just like he did. We will be writing our own special prayers to St Joseph and reflect our own lives to be like Him.
Also we will be celebrating the Feast of two great Saints Paul and Peter. In our lessons we will be reflecting their lives and thinking what can we learn from them today.
We made crosses to remind us all that we are part of God's Family
Jesus Walks on Water
In our Collective Worship assembly, we have been hearing the story of Jesus Walks on Water. We thought and reflected about TRUST. We have been discussing that we must trust people around us because Jesus wants us to learn more from them and always make the right choices.
We finished our assembly by role playing to the story and thinking that TRUST of GOD will always stay with us.
Jesus Walks on Water role play
A Captain's Faith
In our Collective Worship assembly, we reflected how we can show our faith to Jesus. We thought how can we be like a captain in the story, whose faith was strong to believe that Jesus can heal his servant. We finished our reflection by singing a song called: ''Jesus' love is so wonderful''.
A changed man:
In our Collective Worship we shared the story and re-enacted it. We reflected on how Saul (who became Paul) changed his ways and his views about Jesus and his followers and we discussed that at times, we may not always make the right decision but we too can change our ways and make better choices.
In our class Collective Worship book we wrote a special prayer to Jesus:
Please help us to show our faith to everyone just like a captain in the story.
Please guide us on a daily basis and help us to keep our faith strong.
Please comfort us to stay with you forever.
We also celebrated St. Patrick's Day:
-We learnt about St. Patrick the Patron Saint of Ireland
-We looked at Ireland's special things: Shamrock, lucky green, leprechauns,
-We all had a go at Irish dancing
-We listened to and learnt a few Irish words
-We learnt about how people all around the world celebrate St. Patrick's Day (including when they dye rivers green)
