Stationery

In order to minimise multiple use of equipment, it would be great if you could  provide your child with a pencil case containing the following equipment: a ruler, glue stick, HB pencil, a pencil sharpener and a set of colouring pencils. It would be extremely helpful if the pencil case was relatively small as space on tables and in trays is limited. We will provide this equipment where required. 

 

P.E.

Children in Class 1 will need their P.E. kits on Thursday in line with our Covid 19 Risk Assessment. In order to reduce increased congestion when changing, children are invited to come to school this day in their P.E. kits. P.E. kits should  consist of jogging bottoms, shorts, a house-coloured t-shirt, jumper and trainers. 

 

Brilliant Beginning - Building Weather Stations 

Our Brilliant Beginning will be on Monday 14th September 2020. Children are welcome to wear non uniform on this day and they will make weather stations to monitor the wind and rain throughout the academic year.

 

Spelling

Every Monday, your child will be taught a new spelling rule to practise during the week. These spelling rules are outlined in the Phonics Newsletter which is attached above. Please spend time at home practising these spelling rules.

 

In January 2021, your child will receive a Spelling Homework Book.

English

In Year 1, children learn to orally retell different types of texts using story maps and actions. We ask all parents to support children with learning these texts at home orally, so that children can use them to create their own versions. The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 1. Please download the texts and story maps and practise retelling them. Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!

Maths No Problem

 

As a school, we place emphasis on teaching Maths using a Maths Mastery approach. We place emphasis on children learning to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. We use Maths No Problem Maths Textbooks and Workbooks in school.

Our first topic is called 'Up Our Street', which links our Science and Geography lessons together. We're going to go on a journey with Barnaby Bear, to find him the perfect place to build his new home. The children will learn about the four seasons, the key features of our school and village and will discover the mini beasts that live on the school grounds. For the Brilliant Beginning, the children are welcome to wear non uniform and will build rain gauges and wind socks to help record the weather throughout the year. Rain collected will be recorded each term. 

 

Class Country

Our class country is France. Over the year, we will find out what it is like to live in France, learn about famous French monuments and learn some French words and phrases.

 

Have you ever been on holiday to France? Can you speak any French?
