Important class information
PE: This takes place on a Tuesday afternoon with Mrs Mortimer and Miss Usher. Please send your child with their PE kits in a named bag so they can get changed before the PE lesson. Please remove all jewellery and ensure long hair (boys and girls) is tied back.
Autumn term will be dance and gymnastics inside, so please send a white t shirt and black shorts. They will do the lessons in bare feet.
Reading: Please listen to your child regularly, at least 3 times a week, and record this in their reading record. Reading is about listening to your child, their fluency and their understanding, so please ask lots of questions and discuss the books together.
We are following the Little Wandle phonics scheme in school. In school I will listen to your child read a decodable book 3 times a week. This book will be sent home on a Friday to read with parents, grandparents, aunts or uncles! Your child will also bring home a 'book to enjoy', this is to read with support and help from you. There will be some challenging words, so please read it together and enjoy.
We also visit the library on a Friday so your child can choose a book to bring home and enjoy.
Homework: This will be given out on a Friday and will need to be completed and returned on a Thursday.
Spellings: These are linked with the phonics and spelling rules your child is learning. They are handed out on a Friday and need to be returned on a Thursday. Please learn these at home.
Things to bring to school: * Water bottle * Named jumper/cardigan *Reading book and record * Named coat (weather appropriate) *Homework/spellings on Thursday
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
Here is a typical timetable for Class One.
History of transport and travel
In English we are learning about biographies. We’ll learn what a biography is and the features in one before writing our own. We will be writing a biography about a significant individual, Amelia Earhart. This will link with our history topic.
In Maths we will be learning about a range of topics including: multiplication, division, fractions, addition and subtraction. We will be really focusing on our 2, 5, and 10 times tables.
We continue to have daily phonics lessons in Class 1. In addition, we have decodable reading in small groups 3 times a week.
In history we are learning about how transport and travel has changed over the years. We will look at a range of different vehicles and compare them to modern day modes of transport.
Within our art lessons we will be learning about how to collage using different materials in order to create effects. Our final product will be a collaged hot air balloon.
Within our PE lessons we will be expanding our ball skills. We will be learning how to catch, throw, kick and hit a range of balls with increasing accuracy. In addition, we will be working on our teamwork and resilience.
