Welcome back

Welcome back to Year 1. We have had a fabulous first week  and have really enjoyed getting to know all the new children and new staff.

Our topics for this term will be Wild Weather and Past and Present, where we will begin by learning with Human and physical Geography and seasonal changes and daily weather in our local area and the UK. We will also be exploring Chronology- and a timeline of the children’s family life.

During Science we have began to explore seasonal changes- making observations and recording measurements.

P.E will be on a Wednesday . Please can the children come into school each Wednesday in their correct P.E kit (white t-shirt, black shorts, black tracksuit and trainers).

Homework will be handed out on a Friday and is to be returned on the following Thursday unless otherwise stated. Homework will consist of a spelling and a maths activity. Spelling will be linked to your child’s phonics group and the coloured reading book they are reading.

Reading at home. We would like you to read with your child 3 times a week and help us to promote the love of reading. Each time your child reads at home a raffle ticket will be entered into a draw at the end of each term.

Numeracy- We will be starting the term learning about place value and number. We  will then continue to use this knowledge as we explore addition and subtraction.
