Welcome back, we hope you had a peaceful half term break and are excited about the term ahead!
Our teachers are Mrs Smithers and Mrs Tuach. We are also very lucky to have other helpers in our class including Mrs Bexx, Mrs Waters and Maureen. We welcome any parent/grandparent helpers so pop in and see us.
Year 1 has lots of exciting topics for the children to explore and we will be conducting a piece of writing every Friday in our Big Write sessions. Please remember to talk with the children about their ‘talk homework’ topic in preparation for the big write on a Friday! This will go out every Monday.
We really enjoyed last term's work on our Toys topic, some of the photos of our trip to Legoland are below! This term our topic is based around the Seaside, we will be finding out about different seaside locations, how seasides have changed over time and what it is like to visit seaside locations including sharing our own experiences.
Phonics and spelling will be implemented through Read Write Inc.
In Literacy we will be begin with looking at poems about the seaside and also enjoy some fantasy type stories later in the term. Big write will continue each Friday drawing on these units and events each week.
In numeracy, we will be continuing to improve our counting skills including counting in jumps of twos and fives.
In science we wil be learning about the seasons, drawing on our experiences of visiting Rushall Woods earlier in the year and looking for signs of summer in our local environment.
In our ICT lessons, we will be continuing to explore coding.
P.E. will be on a Monday and Thursday, practising all those skills we will be using in sports day! Please ensure there is a full P.E kit in school all week as these times may change on occasions, we are happy for PE kits to stay in school over the weekends to ensure everybody has theirs each week.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE P.E. KIT IS NAMED PLEASE
We also visit the library once a week so please bring in your child's library book every Tuesday or Wednesday for return.
