Class 1H - Year 1
Class 1H - Year 1
Welcome back Year 1!
What a busy start to the year we’ve had in year 1! We’re blown away by the progress the children have made in 8 short weeks and how much they’ve matured. We hope the children have had a well-earned rest over the half term break and are ready to dive back into learning!
This half term is a busy and exciting one. The children continue to explore addition and subtraction with in 10 and will also be introduced to two more units of work in maths – shapes and place value to 20. In English, we will start the half term by reading the Robot and The Blue Bird, a tale of a robot who has a broken heart only to find happiness when a blue bird befriends him. In the second half of the half term, we will be looking at poetry. The children will continue to improve their reading and writing by following the Read, Write, Inc phonics scheme.
In history, children will be asking the question; How have toys changed since our older relatives were little? If parents or carers have any toys from the 1960’s, 70’s, 80’s or 90’s that we could borrow for the topic, we would be super grateful and promise to take good care of them until returned on the last week of term.
The children will also be busy practicing for the Key Stage 1 Nativity. We’ve got some fantastic singers and budding thespians in year one so we’re sure it’ll be a real treat to watch.
Please see the year one overview for information about what the children will be learning about in each subject.
Some useful information:
- 1H will have PE every Thursday. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school.
- Homework and spellings will be given out every Monday to be returned each Friday.
- The children will have a spelling test every Friday.
- Reading books will be going home each day so the children must bring their book bags into school daily. We do not provide book bags in class. Please speak to the office if you wish to purchase a book bag.
- Please try to read with your child every night for 10 minutes.
- Learning is thirsty work! Please make sure your child brings in a bottle of water each day.
As always, we’re here to help and support you with your child’s education so please speak to us if you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you for your continued support.
