A quick update about Year 1. On a Thursday we have PE, children come to school dressed in their PE kits, with earrings taken out before school. On Friday the children have a spelling test and will receive new spellings to learn for the following week. Reading folders – these should be in school each day along with their spelling book. The children’s books will be changed on a weekly basis, this will be done on a Friday. In writing our main focus is to improve our sentence structure as well as focusing on Phonics. We will be looking at different texts in class and learning new skills.
In Maths this half term we are looking at number specifically place value and addition and subtraction. It would be fantastic if you could encourage maths in the real world at home. Thinking about the numbers the children can see i.e. house numbers, numbers on clocks etc. Talk about the number and how much it is worth, this can be shown using objects.
