Week 1 w.b. 5th September 2022
Welcome to Year 1!
Year 1 had a lovely start to the new school year and were excited to share all their news with their friends again. They joined the first school assembly and learned about The Year of Pilgrimage and wrote what they can do to grow closer to God on a footstep which will be displayed in the hall. In class Year 1 took part in collective worship and decorated their prayer space and table to reflect the start of creation season in ordinary time. Year 1 learnt about some important pilgrimages that Catholics go on and used the construction resources to build their own replicas that now decorate the prayer table.
Our PE days are Monday (inside the hall for Karate) and Friday (outside movement skills on the field, playground, or hall if weather permits.)
Children should wear their full Pope Paul PE kits to school on those days, including sweatshirts rather than school jumpers or cardigans for colder weather. Please wear a plain white or black t-shirt until house teams are allocated.
We will continue to assess the children in phonics and reading over the next two weeks before sending reading books home. This will ensure that we are accurately sending books with sounds in that the children can read and enjoy with you at home.
The Phonics meeting on Thursday 29th September will be a repeat of last term so please only attend if you missed the previous one. I can discuss any phonics queries with you at our meet teacher meeting next Friday 16th September at 2:30pm in the school hall.
Please ensure that all belongings are named clearly. Please check the school bags to make sure that nothing belonging to someone else has accidentally been taken home. Children need a water bottle and hat in school every day please. Any boxes of tissues would be greatly appreciated.
Mrs Mocia will be covering on Monday and I will see you all on Tuesday,
Have a safe and happy weekend,
