Year 1

 Weekly Overview

During English we have continued to look at superheroes, the children have created and described their own superhero, they have then written stories about. In maths the children have been looking at time, we have recapped o’clock and half past. We have discussed the difference in time between clocks and have looked at activities which take an hour, a minute and a second. In topic this week we looked at England and made scones, the children enjoyed baking and eating the scones with butter and jam.

The children enjoyed their performing in the summer production, thank you to everyone who came to watch and support them.

Half-termly Overview Summer Two 2019

Welcome back I hope you had an lovely half term break. If you have any questions please feel free to pop in and see myself at 8.30 or at home time. You can also contact me via an email to school or leave a message for me to phone you at a time which is convenient.

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. In Year 1, 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 Wednesday 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. Year 1 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,

Miss Meeks.
