Welcome back to Leopards! We hope you had a restful half term and you’re all ready for your last term as a year 1.
Each week, we will be doing maths, English, science, RE and a variety of art, music and D&T. We also will be doing history and geography throughout our Topic sessions.
Please make sure you continue to read as often as possible with your child. This is still SO important and will help them within all aspects of the school curriculum. You should have a reading record to write down every time your child has read, please let us know if you have misplaced this. We are still changing our reading books on a Monday and a Friday whilst in school. Please make sure you remind your child to change their book on these days if they need to. We encourage reading with your child to take place as often as possible (at least 4-5 times per week) to further develop their phonic knowledge and understanding of different texts. The same reading book should be shared several times during the week to embed fluency and understanding for example you could follow this pattern:
1st : Read
2nd : Recount
3rd : Ask questions
4th : Reread
This term, our topic is “Castles”. We are going to be emerging ourselves into this topic designing bow and arrows, making catapults and finding the best materials for building a castle.
Our PE days are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure your child has a labelled PE kit.
Please make sure your child comes in with a sun hat on and sun cream applied when it is a sunny day. Also, ensure your child has a labelled water bottle, it is especially important on hot days!
This term, we will be setting small phonics and maths tasks every Friday via Google Classroom. Please make sure you check Google Classroom on a Friday. If you are struggling to get back onto GC, please contact us and we will do our best to help.
Miss Williams, Miss Wagstaff and Mrs Ferryman.
