Our PE days for this term are on a Tuesday 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.

Homework expectations:

Reading

  • On Fridays the children will be set the online book version of the story they have been practicing during their RWI lessons. This can be found on the Oxford Owl website using the password and username found in the front of your child's reading records.                   https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/login?active-tab=students
  • 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. These can be books you may have at home or a book they have brought home from school from our class or school libraries. It also includes the online RWI books that are set every week. 

Maths

It is always helpful to practice counting with your child. In Year 1 we will be focusing on counting forwards and backwards in 1s to 100, in 2s to 24, in 10s to 120 and in 5s to 60. Number bonds to 10 and 20, double and half facts are great to learn too.

 

Spelling

In the Summer Term we will be setting spelling practice for the children. These will be 6 new common exception or 'red' words each week to learn and practice. They will be set via our class teams page each Friday afternoon, so please be sure to check this each week.

 

Other

We will keep you updated on our class Teams page for any other homework set later on in the term.
