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:
EVERYDAY MATERIALS (SCIENCE)
We will be working scientifically to distinguish between an object and the material from which it is made. We will also identify and name a variety of everyday materials, including wood, plastic, glass, metal, water, and rock. The children will learn to describe the simple physical properties of a variety of everyday materials and compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of their simple physical properties.
BIBLE STORIES (R.E/D.T.)
The children will be learning about the story of Joseph. We will be making our very own technicoloured dream coat in D.T. so if you have any spare materials please bring them in.
This term we will be focusing mainly on number, we will be practising our addition and subtraction skills, and we have just begun to look at multiplication and division. We will also cover measure, time, and basic 3D shapes.
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 we are currently covering the sounds in class but it would really benefit your child to practise these at home as well.
