Book Bags: Please ensure that the children bring their book bag to school every day, as in addition to being a means of transporting reading materials it is a valuable method of communication. We encourage the children to give important notes from their parents directly to their class teacher or teaching assistant.
Uniform: Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your child’s name. Children will need their P.E. kits in school on PE days. Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please encourage children to be independent dressers at home, as these skills will be helpful at school.
Reading: We change the children’s reading books daily, so if they have finished their book please ensure that the children put their home reading record and reading book in the basket every morning to be changed. Please support your child with reading at home.
Phonics: The Phonics scheme we follow is Read, Write, Inc. HFW, Year 1 Spellings and RWI sounds (please see below) these activities are ongoing for the year and not part of the weekly homework which is set on Mathletics and Spellodrome.
Handwriting: Please look at the letters sheet attached to see how we write each letter. We would recommend that you use this sheet to help your child when he/ she is completing any written work at home.
Homework: Homework will be set every Friday (published in our class blog). Please see below.
Learning: Our main topic next half term is Animals including Humans.
In Literacy we will be focussing on stories about fantasy worlds. We will be writing stories with a beginning, middle and end.
In Numeracy we will be focusing on solving one step problems using multiplication and division.
Our RE topic next half term is Happy to join the Church.
In PE we will be focusing on Athletics.
Please can all parents practise the 2, 5 and 10 times tables at home with their children and the 3, 4, 6 once children have learnt 2, 5, 10.
We would like to remind you that the Phonics Screening Check will take place during the week commencing 20th June. We would very much appreciate if you could support your child at home practising sounding out and blending using real and nonsense words. More information regarding the Phonics Screening Check can be found on the following website.
Thank you for your support!
Have a lovely half-term holiday.
Ms Young and Miss Ferezan
