Welcome to Year 1! We hope you had a lovely summer. We have planned some exciting learning for this term. We would like to inform you about our topics this term; our Science topic is Weather and in Geography we will be looking at the British Isles. We will learning all the capital cities and surrounding seas of the British Isles. We also have our exciting trip to Rendlesham Forest planned where we will be looking at and identifying deciduous and evergreen trees. This term we are focusing on addition and subtraction, less than and more than and problem solving. We will begin to learn our number facts to 20. Please find below the autumn jigsaw, which is an overview of what your child will be learning this term.
Thank you for your support with your child's reading. Our expectation is that each child will read at least four times a week. Please continue to write in your child's reading journal. If you would like any tips on how to help with home reading please let us know, we would be thrilled to help! At half term we will send out a homework pack including a homework book. This needs to be completed just before we break up for the Christmas holidays.
Just a reminder that P.E. takes place every Thursday afternoon and swimming every Wednesday morning. However the swimming pool is currently out of order. We will inform you when swimming lessons will resume. We expect the children to have full kit in school on these days.
Please do not hesitate to catch us at the end of the school day if you have any questions/problems. Alternatively Cherise, Julia and Wendy are on the door every morning and you can send us a message via them.
Thank you so much for your continuing support.
We would like to keep you informed about the spellings we are focusing on every 2 weeks. We hope this will help you to support your child at home. The list of spellings can be found in the font of your child's Reading Diary/Journal. By the end of Year 1 the children are expected to spell and read these words.
So far we have learnt to spell and read...
