Welcome to Class 1's page!
Welcome back Class 1!
I hope you all had a lovely Easter and a fun break from school.
This term, the Year Reception topic will be ‘Traditional Tales’. We will be starting with the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and following on with ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. We will be linking our stories to science, first looking at ‘Materials’ and then ‘Growing and Planting’ later on in the term. As always, we will be learning through our play and continuing to be outside as well. We will also be linking our topic to Maths, looking at Number; addition and subtraction and carrying on with shape, space and measure.
During the summer term, Year 1’s topic is ‘Our World’. We will be learning about the environment and how we can care for it. This will include, researching David Attenborough and the conservation work he is involved in.
Year 1 will have a Phonics Screening test that will be during the week commencing Monday 11th June.
I will be leaving Tuesday after school free for meetings with parents; please book with Donna or Sarah in the office.
Homework will be given out on Fridays to all children and must be handed in on Thursdays. Spellings will continue to be given to both Year One and Year Reception. A spelling quiz will take place on Thursdays. Please ensure your child has time to complete homework in order for them to practice what they have learnt that week. Children will also bring home 2 reading books every week. Please read with your child daily, even if it is only for a short time. Reading is extremely important in Class 1 and is a huge focus. We are asking for children to read regularly and we have encouraged this by creating the school ‘Reading Raffle’.
P.E for Class 1 will be on Monday mornings and Thursday afternoons. Please make sure P.E kits are left in school during term time.
I can’t wait for the summer term to begin and to have lots of fun whilst learning together.
