Please ensure your child comes into school each day with a book bag (please no rucksacks) and please make sure they bring their reading book and diary each day.
In Key Stage One we set homework each week via Google Classrooms.
Homework will be set on a Friday and your child will have till the following Friday to hand their homework in via Google Classrooms.
Reading at Home
Your child will receive a school reading book and we ask that you sign their diaries when you hear your child read.
If your child has read at home and completed their book, it is your child's responsibility to put their book in the 'Change Book' box each morning when they come into school. Mrs Stewart will remind the children at register time.
Children will also take home a book from our lending library each week.
Please share picture books and stories with children at home.
In the Autumn Term we have lots of exciting activities planned. In English, we will be using a range of texts including Superworm and The Jolly Postman. In Maths, we will begin the term focusing on our number understanding in particular place value, addition and subtraction. Later on in the term we will be learning about the United Kingdom and comparing contrasting the different human and physical features in each country! In History we will be comparing our typical school day to a typical school day in Victorian times. In Art we will be looking at the artist Paul Klee and the work he created. In Science, we will be investigating materials and our senses. These are just a few of the areas we will be learning about.
Our topic this Spring term is entitled 'Amazing Animals.' Here are just a few of our exciting activities planned for this lovely term - half way through our Year One journey!
In Science, our main focus will be to identify, name and compare animals by learning about their structure, diet and habitats - and this will be reflected in our other subject areas as well.
We will be looking at our Earth - on a globe and World maps to identify and name the Continents, Oceans and hot and cold areas.
We will read and explore a variety of stories from different parts of the World from the point of view of the animals that live there - and also finding facts about penguins for our non-fiction unit in English. In Art we will be looking at animal markings and patterns and how they are suited to the habitat and environment they live in, exploring colour mixing to draw and show these patterns.
We will make animal hand puppets in DT using textile skills including sewing.
In Maths, we will continue to focus on basic number skills, the knowledge of place value and learning lots about measurement too.
History will involve the children in looking at significant people from the past, their impact and why we remember them today.
