Back to School!

Finally the 4th September was the first day back after the summer holidays! Darcey is now in year 1. And so far the feelings are excited and happy! She likes her new teacher, but not as much as her first teacher (no one will compare!). We had a meeting last night with her teacher to find out what they need to learn over the next school year.

  1. Number bonds to 10 & 20
  2. Times tables
  3. More reading
  4. More phonics
  5. Different topics such as
    The Great Fire of London
    What lives in our oceans?
    Rivers
    And probably something else that I’ve forgotten!

She was given a place at her lunch time club called Lunchtime Angels where they learn about the Bible and do crafts related to what they’re learning that week.

Also this weekend Darcey finally got to Yellow Hats in swimming! She is so excited to finally get her hands on that elusive yellow hat. So this weekend is the start of being in the big pool.

All in all a great first week of school.

We had a birthday party with Cook Stars. The children made their own cupcakes and got to decorate them too. She’s a star baker now. Next step ‘The Great British Bake Off’.
