A warm welcome to our class page.
This term is going to be a very busy time for Year 1 as we continue to focus on becoming independent and prepare to move into Year 2!
Our topics this term will have a geography and history theme -
Summer 1 -At the Seaside.
Summer 2- Around the UK with Barnaby Bear.
Our maths lessons will consist of consolidating knowledge of previous learning (numbers to 100), addition and subtraction of 2 digit numbers and looking at 2D and 3D shapes.
Our literacy texts will be Rainbow Fish to the Rescue and Billy's Bucket, which will link well into our topic work. There will be an emphasis on spelling and writing more complex sentences.
Daily phonics lessons will be as usual and this will be continued into Year 2.
Phonics screening will take place the week commencing Monday 10th June 2019. I have sent a letter home regarding this. If you have any questions regarding this please come and see me.
Now all of the children have been issued with a school water bottle, they must be taken home each night to be washed and returned the next day. Unfortunately we no longer have plastic cups in the classrooms for drinks, so it is important for children to bring their bottles back every day. Lost or broken bottles can be replaced at the office at a cost of a pound.
Book bags need to be in school every day and where possible children should be reading every night to an adult. If you can then write a comment and sign your child's reading diary, this will be greatly appreciated.
PE kits consist of white t-shirts, black shorts and black pumps. Kits need to be left in school until the next half term,when they can then be taken home to wash. This ensures the children will always be able to take part in sport/dance lessons and gives them ownership of looking after their own property. It is also important that children are now able to dress and undress independently. If you feel that this is an issue for your child, please encourage this at home.
I am very much looking forward to a super Summer term.
If you have any concerns and need to speak to me please feel free to see me after school or make an appointment with the office.
Thank you for your continual support.
