Brazil and Carnival

Maths

 

The importance of early number and early understanding of mathematics cannot be underestimated. With this in mind we will be placing more time in the early stages of Year 1 on place value and the concept of part and whole. Initially working with numbers up to 10 and then up to 20.

 

English

As a whole school we are initially going to explore the text, Here We Are, a beautiful book by Oliver Jeffers. We will then look at a range of different texts and genres to develop the children’s creativity and writing skills. Phonics will continue to be an important part of developing their reading and spellings. We will also be looking closely at their pencil grip and developing their handwriting.

 

Science

 

In science we will be looking The Senses as well as developing an understanding of Autumn, as we look at Seasonal Changes throughout the year.

 

Computing

 

We will be introducing and developing basic computing skills with the children and how to use “Teams” with them. Please make sure you have signed up and look for the tasks we are setting the children.

 

Topic

Brazil is a contrasting location with UK that is exciting for the children to explore. It gives us the opportunity to introduce the children to some basic geography skills and knowledge as well as looking at the colour artistic side too.

 

PSHE

Our value is Responsibility.

RE

 

Each term we cover a new area of Christianity in class and our assemblies.

PE

 

 

 

Your child will be developing different skills through weekly indoor PE sessions. Please send your child into school in their PE kit on the following days:  1GE on a Tuesday & 1SC on a Friday. Kit should include green shorts, a plain white t-shirt, pumps/trainers and tracksuit bottoms in case of cold weather.

 

Remember

Reading

 

 

 

 

Reading books will be changed on a Monday and Thursday. We have put some guidance at the front of their reading record to support you. It is essential that your child reads on a daily basis - new books, familiar books, comics, even newspapers. We appreciate and value the support you give us with this.

 

 

Always remember your clearly labelled water bottles.

 

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Mrs Smout, Mrs Carter, Mrs Williams, Mrs Gardner & Mrs Phillpotts

Home Learning - 2 weeks - April 20th and April 27th

 

                

 

- All of the children have received a username and password for this website and a brief letter of how to access the online games and activities that are on there. 

- Teachers have not yet set which activities they want your child to access, so for now we would like them just to explore the games that they wish to try. To do this click on the 'subjects' heading on the side menu. 

- Then choose English, maths or science and try games either at the age they are working at or below to build some confidence to begin with.

- Once your child's teacher has set any classwork for them to do on here they will let you know via Twitter and their year group page. This will be by the Easter holidays to enable your child to have time to work through their home learning packs first.

 

- If you have problems connecting please contact via email to the office which will be forwarded to me so I can sort any issues. 

 

Thanks, Mrs Perry.
