A big hello from Miss Alderson, Miss Harrison, Mrs Dunn, Miss Sheriff and Mr Miller!
Please see the 'generic' timetable for Year 1. The orange writing shows where 1RH would complete an activity and the purple writing shows where 1HA would complete an activity.
When there is a special event or themed week, this timetable may vary slightly.
In Phonics, we are continuing with our learning of the alternative pronunciations. We will be looking at these alternatives:
This week, we will be learning more about Christopher Columbus through English, History and D.T! We will be:
Every Friday, a Maths homework sheet will be handed out to every child. This will be a paper copy. In addition, an electronic copy will be available on the website.
The deadline for each Maths sheet will be the following Friday.
Please note, this homework is to extend your child's learning, not to test them. We would like the children to complete it as independently as possible; however, if you find that your child is finding it difficult, please make a note and we can follow it up through curriculum time.
Please note - some children may have calculations on their worksheet. If your child had calculations on their sheet and you've since misplaced the sheet, please ask your child's class teacher for the calculations (these were hand written on so cannot be displayed on the website).
Every Monday, your child will be tested on 6 spellings that they have learned the previous week. The next set of spellings will be released on the Tuesday, along with a slip of your child's results. This will clearly state if your child has got any spellings wrong and how they have spelled it. This will allow you to see where they have gone wrong.
Please find this half term's Chilli Challenge Grid below. All of the activities are linked directly to our learning. Please note that some of the learning may not have occurred yet.
Once your Chilli Challenge has been completed, please bring it into school so we are able to celebrate your child's great work!
The deadline for all Chilli Challenges is Friday 6th March 2020.
Thank you to all of the parents and carers who attended the 'New to Year 1' and 'Phonics 1' workshop earlier this year. It was really lovely to see so many of you! In addition, thank you to those adults who requested the information if they couldn't make the meeting.
Please find the relevant resources and materials you may want to refer to below. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask either Miss Alderson or Miss Harrison.
In Year 1, we begin to teach the children how to form letters using the cursive script. Although this does look very confusing, the children have taken it in their stride and try so hard to ensure that they use cursive letters, even when they're writing on white boards. Please see the below document which demonstrates how the letters need to look in the cursive script. If your child is writing at home, please encourage them to use the cursive script so it becomes second nature to them. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
