WELCOME TO YOUR CLASS PAGE YEAR 1
Please remember to change your reading book on a regular basis and read every night. Once you have read, get the adult you read to to write in your yellow reading diary.
Homework will be issued every week on a Tuesday and it's really important to hand it in on time on (or before) the following Tuesday. Don't forget that if you lose any homework or you are not sure what to do then come and ask one of the adults in class. We are here to help you!
Our topics this half term are:
During the spring term Year 1 are looking at materials and textiles. As part of this topic we shall be visiting the V&A museum in London to look at materials used in Chinese art and creating our own present for the Emperor. Our class assembly is also this month and we shall pursue our textile theme by creating a coat of many colours for our story of Joseph. We also hope to use different fabric and textiles to design our own sock puppets. For the science side of materials we shall be looking at the properties of different materials and why they are chosen to make different products. In maths we are continuing to develop our addition and subtraction skills before starting to look at multiplication and division in the second half of term. In PE, we shall be learning different gymnastic techniques, team games and tennis skills. Circle time is our weekly opportunity to express thoughts and share ideas and we are looking forward to learning new skills through story and play.
READ, WRITE, INC. (ENGLISH)
During the year we will be continuing to use our phonics to help us decode words and to help with our writing. We are working towards our phonics test in May. Although we are currently covering the sounds in class, it would really benefit your child to practise these at home as well.
