Year 1/2

 Weekly Overview

Year One Phonics – During phonics the children have been looking at ea and ee sounds.

Year Two Phonics – The children have been looking at suffixes.

In English the children have been looking at spelling, punctuation and grammar. The children have been learning about homophones, types of sentences and changing tense. They have also been identifying verbs, adjectives and nouns. During maths, year one have been looking at multiples of two, five and ten as well as one more and one less. Year two have been working fractions. The children have enjoyed planting carrots and pine cones in science and looking at the history of teddy bears in topic.

All of the children have taken home a home learning book and a folder of resources, they have work to complete each day along with afternoon activities. I look forward to seeing pictures of their work on ClassDojo. Please do not hesitate to contact me through ClassDojo if you have an questions.

Half-termly Overview Spring Two 2020

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.

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,

Mrs Northcott

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,
