Please make sure children have your PE kit in school for lessons. They can wear tracksuit bottoms and sweatshirts during colder weather.
Phonics / Spellings
In Term 1 we will spend time recapping our sounds from Reception and learning new sounds. Each child has a Sound book to practice their sounds in class and at home.
For more information the Oxford Owl has more information and videos about what phonics is and how you can help as a parent. Click here or the picture to visit the Oxfordowl website.
After Term 1 children will start to learn spellings from a spelling list. The intention is to learn the spellings for writing rather than just for a test. Spellings will be every Wednesday. Please remember to bring in your spelling folders. To find a list of the spelling words look at the spelling lists at the bottom of the page. Keep up the good work!
Each term the children are given a list of home-learning activities that they can chose from. The activities are aimed to support that learning we do in our topic works and if other areas of the curriculum. To find a copy of the home-learning lists look at the Important Documents below. If you have any questions then please speak to the class teacher.
Reading at home can make a huge difference to a child's reading ability. Each child has a reading book from the book boxes so please record in their monkey books when you read together.
Running out of space on your bookshelf. Here are some free online books from Oxford Reading Tree. A grown-up needs to sign up to a free account for access. Click here.
Handwriting is an important skill for writing and it is essential that children get in to good habits early. Here are some useful websites to help learn the techniques we use in school and practice at home.
Term 3 In the Playground
This term we are looking at playgrounds. We will be learning about how people use playgrounds and design our own playgrounds. We will look at how to use plans and maps as part of our Geography work. We are hoping to have a trip to some local playgrounds towards the end of the term.
We will be going to visit local play parks to study what they are made of and evaluate them.
We have learnt about Maps and how we can show the world around us using maps. We have drawn maps of our school and planned routes to local shops and parks.
Term 2 Toys
We are learning about the toys we play with now and comparing them with toys from different times in the past.
We have learnt about the toys that our parents and grandparents played with when they were kids. We looked at toys from the past and thought about how they were made and what they were made from.
Some children designed their own toys and they looked amazing.
Topic Term 1 All About Me!
We are learning all about ourselves. We are looking at how our bodies work and the names of parts of our bodies. We have read books about
Marvellous Me Box
Each child has a chance to share their Marvellous Me Box with the class. The empty box will be given to someone in the class every Monday and Thursday. They can then fill the box with objects that are important to them and they want to share with the class. It could be badges/awards, photos, books, toys, anything that is special to them. We will use this box to find out more about each other and to develop our speaking and listening skills.
