Welcome to the Summer term in Peacock Class!
I hope you are all happy and healthy and had a wonderful half term. It is wonderful to be starting another half term in school!
In English we will be building on our phonics knowledge, practising our Sight Words and new spelling rules, looking at sentence structure and punctuation and we will be learning completing a variety of writing, in a range of genres, based on several wonderful books. In Maths we will be looking at multiplication, division, fractions and addition and subtraction within 100. Our Science topics are Plants and Animals Including Humans - All About Animals. In RE we will be looking at Special things in Nature. Our computing focus for this term is using Purple Mash. All of our other learning will be part our topic 'Into the Wild'. We be looking looking at Mary Anning and David Attenborough, explore animals around the world and look at the continents and oceans in Geography. We will complete an Artist Study in Art, designing and constructing new habitats and clay animals and learning to play rhythms and simple tunes in Music. Our English will also be linked to our topic too.
Please ensure ALL clothing, coats and shoes are named.
PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Please come to school in warm PE clothes, hair tied back and no earrings.
Now we are finally having warmer weather, please bring a sun hat, apply sun cream every day before coming to school and bring 2 water bottles into school every day.
Please make sure shoes, including PE shoes, do not have laces unless your child can tie them independently.
Homework in Year 1 is now being sent home in our red Homework Books every Friday and is due the following Wednesday. We will have a range of homework tasks including Lucky Listeners, Phonics, weekly spellings (these will be tested on a Thursday), Maths and handwriting. We also ask that children read at least 5 times a week at home and these reads are recorded in your planner. Planners will now be collected on a Wednesday and reads will be counted. Star Reader will be awarded to anyone who has read 5 or more times. DOJO points will be given for all completed homework. Planners will be sent home on a Thursday. We will change our reading books on a Thursday.
If you have any queries or questions you can contact me on Google Classroom or on the class website firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe and I look forward to lots of exciting learning this half term!
