White Rock Primary School

'Inspiring Learning Together'

White Rock Primary School

WELCOME TO YEAR 1 BUZZARDS

The Brambling can be found most commonly in the British Isles during the cold winter months, the rest of the year it explores other regions of the world. They travel in large groups (usually in the thousands!) and we will take this characteristic of this bird and use it in our classroom to ensure that there is a sense of teamwork to encourage all children to work together and support each other in their learning journey!

 

This Terms Theme

'THE DAY IN THE LIFE OF A PALEONTOLOGIST'

The theme for the Autumn term is 'A Day in the Life of a Paleontologist'. This will give us plenty of opportunities to learn collaboratively across classes and year groups. We will begin our learning by asking the children what they are curious to learn about. We will be learning about different dinosaurs, making fossils and exploring materials.

(For more information about this term's theme, scroll down to our curriculum map)

 

P.E & Dance days

P.E. Days are Thursdays and Fridays.

Please ensure that your child has the correct kit in school all week. We will ensure that they are sent home at the end of every half term

 

Home Learning days

Home Learning will be handed out on a Friday and collected in on a Wednesday. This will give you the opportunity to explore aspects of your child's learning if you wish.
