Year 1 Learning Term 3, Week 7


This Monday 14th February, Year 1 ‘Word for our Learning Day’. We are really looking forward to what you come up with!
Friday  18th February –  Non-uniform day. Please bring in a donation for FHIS and Whole School 100 Day (See Below)
Last Day of Term 3

Whole School 100 Day- This Friday
We are asking for your support in enabling your child to come to school with one thing you can find at home that represents 100. Some examples include:

  • A top trumps card with ‘100’ on it
  • £1 (100p)
  • An item that is 100cm tall
  • Something that weighs 100g
  • A puzzle with 100 pieces
  • A book with 100 pages
  • 100th anniversary booklet
  • As this date is the final day of Term 3, it will be a non-school uniform day. Your child could wear a piece of clothing representing 100.
  • You will find below a grid showing the sessions to be taught each week. They do not exactly follow days as each class has different sessions due to support and PE times being different but it allows you to see the week as a snapshot of sessions. 
  • We will always aim to get outside, whatever the weather, as much as possible so children will really need a waterproof coat each day.

Term 4 Begins: Monday 28th February 2022
