Welcome back and we hope you are having a lovely half term!
Keeping you up to date!
This term we will be learning the sounds in phase 5 for the next two weeks. We will be exploring Crime Fighters!!! We have been learning about Supertato and What the Ladybird Heard. Later on this half term we will be learning about The True Story of the The Big Bad Wolf. Lots of strange things have been happening in our classroom.
This term we will be continuing to develop their love for reading and hope we cover topics that interest your child. Please ensure your child reads at least 4 times a week and this will support their learning in class and develop their vocabulary.
In Maths we will be learning about fractions, time and money. It would be useful to talk about coins with your child.
In our Science work we are learning about Seasons. We will be taking the temperature and looking at the way weather changes week to week.
P.E. takes place on a Monday morning. P.E is part of the curriculum and all children are expected to take part so please ensure your child comes to school with the appropriate clothing. This means all JEWELLERY (including earrings) to be removed before.
Children are expected to be reading at least 4 TIMES A WEEK in year 1. Reading books will be changed every week. We encourage the children to get new books themselves. Please do not change the books, just add the new book to the books you have.
Stay and Read
Every Wednesday morning parents are invited to stay and read with the children in their classrooms. This is a great opportunity to spend some time with your child in their learning environment and help develop their love for reading!
In year 1 your child should be able to read and write common exception words. These are words they just have to learn off by heart. Your child will receive spellings on a weekly basis, please make sure your child practices them.
Once again thank you for all your continued support.
Tuesday 5th February is Times Tables Rockstar Day. The children will be competing to get the most times tables correct!
Monday 11th February is the Valentines Disco.
