As part of our phonics learning, Year 1 children need to learn a list of Common Exception words that do not fit usual spelling patterns. These have already been sent home as homework to start the learning process. Please continue to help your child to read and write these words throughout the year. We are also looking to encourage children to read as much as possible so please help to remind your child to read every day and sign their reading log. If you are able to spare any time, volunteers to hear children read would be much appreciated, please contact the office to arrange.
This Half Term
This half term will be the start of our ‘Fire and Ice’ topic. We will be looking at our world, the oceans and continents that make up the world and also the hot and cold areas in relation to the Equator. In science, we will be investigating and exploring everyday materials and in music using tuned and untuned instruments to make sounds and music. In English, we will be learning lots about dragons and using our writing skills in a variety of ways, both fiction and non-fiction. Our maths skills will continue to develop as we complete our learning about place value and move onto to learning about measurements in length, weight and capacity. PE will mainly be outdoors so please ensure your child has the appropriate kit. We will be learning about both invasion games, building on attacking and defending skills and also fielding and striking games.
