Welcome to Class 1,
I hope that you all had a lovely summer.
EYFS this half term we will be focusing on the topic ‘Ourselves’ and Year 1 pupils will focus on the topic ‘Inventors and Inventions’.
Please make sure that children have a pair of wellies and a water bottle in school with them at all times.
All pupils will have PE on Mondays and Thursdays. Please make sure your child has the correct PE kit, including trainers and that all PE kit is named. This should include a warm tracksuit, separate outdoor P.E. trainers, shorts, T-shirt and plimsoles.
Show and Tell is on the first Wednesday of the month for EYFS. We ask that your child bring with them something to act as a starting point for discussion, it can be a favourite toy, something they have made, something from a special visit or a photo.
We aim to read with your child at least twice a week, either through guided reading sessions or 1:1 with an adult. Please do not forget to make a quick comment and note of the pages read in their reading diary when you read with your child at home. If your child needs to change their books, they should let me know first thing in the morning and we will try to change them at some point during the day.
Your child will receive regular homework. The homework will be linked to the work covered in school and is meant as a reinforcement and extension activity.
Year 1 will also focus on weekly spellings to learn, adhering to the spelling patterns and rules within the National Curriculum, as well as High Frequency and Common Exception words. These will be practiced during class time, a copy of the spellings will be sent home for your information.
All children will set regular homework for spellings using Spelling Shed starting the week commencing 9th September.
Each pupil will be given a login so that you can access this at home.
