Year 1/2

 Weekly Overview

Year One Phonics – During phonics the children have recapped sounds from phase three and four.

Year Two Phonics – The children have been looking at spelling rules.

In English we have been looking at instructions. The children have discussed the rules and equipment needed to play football, they have then used this information to create and write instructions for their own game called moon football. In maths year one have been looking at money. They have been identifying coins and making amounts. Year two have been recapping doubles and looking at addition and subtraction involving two digit numbers. In topic the children created wooden spoon dolls using different materials.

A few friendly reminders…

Reading is of the utmost importance, children should be reading at home every night. Please could an adult record pages read and a brief comment in the reading diary. Children will read to the teacher twice a week, these days have been written on the front of reading diaries. Children should have their reading folders in school every day for independent reading in class.

P.E will be on Tuesday this year so please ensure children have their kits in school on this day. For P.E. children need to bring their Farrowdale t-shirt and shorts plus white socks and black pumps on the red drawstring bag.

Early morning work begins at 8.30 each day and is mainly spent practicing key aspects of English and Maths. Therefore, I feel that it is beneficial for children to arrive on time.

Weekly homework will resume this week. Homework will be set on a Friday to be handed in the following Thursday. There will be a piece of English, a piece of Maths and spellings.

Thank you,

We would welcome any resources you may have at home that you feel could enhance your child’s learning in any part of the curriculum that we are studying. This may be in the form of information books, guidebooks and leaflets collected on visits to places of interest that you have made with your family. Even better, if you feel that any experiences of your own are relevant to the curriculum, it would be wonderful if you could come and share them with the class.

Thank you,
