Numeracy

This week the children will be learning about how to solve addition and subtraction word problems.  We will be looking at the different wording and how we can solve the problems.

 

Please note - a new MyMaths homework has now been set.  Thank you and well done to all the children that have completed the previous activities.

Literacy

This week will be a Read Write Inc week and the children will be in their differentiated groups focusing on blending, comprehension and fluency.

 

Topic

This week we will be continuing our work on transport and how it has changed over the years.  The main focus this week will be making our own cars and looking into what works well and what doesn't work so well.

 

Can we please remind you that at least one of our PE lessons will be outside every week. Therefore could we please request that you make sure your child has suitable PE clothing for both indoor and outdoor use in their bags. It is essential that PE kits stay at school throughout the week and are not taken home after a PE day. All classes PE days are Monday and Wednesday. 

 

Library Books 

Please can we remind you that school library books should be brought back to school each week, even if your child wishes to keep them. This is so that they can be re-scanned out. Having the opportunity to go down to the library is an exciting opportunity for children and helps to promote the love of reading. 

 

Many Thanks

 

The Year 1 team.

 

Reading will be the basis of our homework over the year, although as the year progresses we will look at introducing spelling. We will also provide a list of possible activities related to our topic that you may wish to complete.

Snacks: The school provides snack every day so the children will not need to supply snacks from home.

Water bottles: Please make sure that your child has a named water bottle in school each day. Children should have water in their bottles rather than juice or squash.
