Year One 2020 – 2021
Summer 1 – Class Information
(If you are isolating please scroll down the page to find out information about home learning)
Our new learning challenge this half term is ‘Which birds and plants would Peter Rabbit find in our local area?’
Please download the sheet attached for information on what we will be learning for each area of the curriculum. HT5 Topic Grid
Here is some useful information about Year One.
Year One children will be given homework to take home on a Monday. This will include spellings.
Year One common exception words will also be sent home to read, learn and remember. It is important that you encourage and support your children with their homework, but please do not do it for them. Homework should be returned, completed on a Friday morning. Spelling tests will take place on a Friday.
Please make sure that ALL items of clothing, including P.E kits, are clearly labelled with your child’s name. Please note that trainers are not part of the school uniform and must not be worn for school.
The children will have P.E on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please wear your PE kit to school.
All children will read in school at least twice a week and therefore it is important that the children have their books in school every day. Please read as much as you can with your child every night. Even 5 minutes will help. Please comment in your child’s reading record book too. (Children should not sign their own reading record book).
Please help us by keeping reading books in a reading book bag to keep them clean and dry and so that books are not lost or damaged as any losses/damages will need to be paid for.
I hope that this information has been useful and has answered some of your questions. If you have any questions, please feel free to come and see me after school or contact the office.
Thank you for all your support. We are looking forward to a fun and busy half term.
