Our Learning 

English 

We have looked at Goldilocks and the three bears during lockdown.

Next, we will be looking at the sequel - Goldilocks and just the one bear. We will be spelling words with the prefix un-, words ending in the suffix ing and ed, plurals ending in s and es. We will also be using prepositional phrases, expanded noun phrases, and retelling the story.

After Easter, we will be creating a Spring acrostic poem.

Maths 

In Maths, we have been using a new scheme called Power Maths. We will be looking at multiplication and division. We will be counting in 2s, 5s, 10s, making equal groups, adding equal groups, making simple arrays, making doubles, solving multiplication word problems, sharing equally, and solving division word problems.

We will then be moving onto fractions, position, and direction.

Science 

We will be finishing our topic this term is animals including humans. We will be carrying out an investigation into touch and exploring our senses.

History

Our topic in History is ‘What has changed since your grandparents were young?’ We will be looking at changes in technology including televisions, tv shows, phones. We will also be looking at the clothes your grandparents would have worn at school, toys they would have had at Christmas, and music.

RE

We will be looking at the Easter story

PE 

PE is delivered by SportScape and is on a Monday. The children must come to school in their PE kit.

On Friday, it is Fit Friday so the children can come to school in appropriate sports clothes.

Homework 

Your child will be sent home every Friday with a new reading book so please ensure you bring the books back every Friday to be changed. 

Please try and read as much as possible at home - at least 3 times a week. When the children 5 times at home they move up the reading rainbow. Once your child reaches the top they will receive a certificate and prize. 

Also, in the back of your reading records is a list of Year 1 common exception words. Please practice reading and writing these words at home. 

You also be sent a homework book which will include maths and writing of tricky words.

Reading 

In Year 1, we use two different book programmes: Read Write Inc and PM benchmarking books. 

Read Write Inc. books link to our phonics lessons and the children are sent home with a book that is at their ability in terms of decoding. 

PM Benchmarking books are books that focus on decoding as well as comprehension. 

Most children are sent home with two books: a Read Write Inc. bookbag book and a PM benchmarking book. 

See below for the colour bands for each scheme:

Other important information 

Please send your child in with a bottle of water as they will be unable to use the water fountain at school at the moment. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
