Our PE days for this term are on a Wednesday and Friday, so please make sure your child has their full P.E. kits on these days. Please also make sure any ear piercings are removed on these days. We will keep P.E. kits in school on pegs for the half term before sending them home to be washed.
Our Class Charter
Listen to our teachers and friends.
Be brave and curious in our learning.
Be kind to everyone.
Keep our classroom tidy.
- On Fridays the children will also bring home a special RWI 'book bag book' that links to the one they have been reading. This is an unfamiliar text and will therefore test the skills they learnt the week before to read it. Ideally the children should be reading 5 times a week.
- Starting soon, on Fridays, your child will also be set a RWI inc book via the Oxford Owl website. This is the book that they will have been studying that week in their RWI lessons.
- Also starting soon, children will also be able to borrow a 'Reading for Pleasure' book from the classroom and a library book.
There is also a reading challenge where children can win a certificate, for 25 days and for 100 days of reading. If they read for 100 days before Christmas they will receive a ticket for a special film day in the last week of term! In Year 1, a day of reading includes reading their own reading book to an adult, reading any other book or being read to. Please make a note of any reading in their diaries so we can see and count their days.
For now no formal Maths homework will be set. However, is always helpful to practise counting. In Year 1 we will be counting in 1s forwards and backwards to 100, in 2s forwards and backwards to 24 and in 10s forwards and backwards to 120. Practising speedy knowledge of number facts such as number bonds (to 10 or 20), doubles and halves is also beneficial.
In the Summer Term we will be setting spelling practise for the children. More information to follow...
We will keep you updated on our class Teams page for any other homework set later on in the term.
Our quest for this term is 'Once upon a time...'. During this quest we will be exploring castles, kings and traditional tales.
