Welcome back! We hope that you have had a relaxing and fun filled Christmas and New Year!
Our P.E. days this term are Mondays pm and Thursdays am. If you can make sure your child has a named P.E. kit in school on these days.
In Year 1 there is a big focus on reading and any extra reading you can support your child with at home is invaluable to your child/ren's learning journey. Additionally, the children will be undergoing a 'Phonics Check', this will take place in June 2020.
1. Ideally, children should be listened to read every day. We ask that children read at least three times a week at home. Please write a comment in your child's reading diary where they can earn DoJo points in class. Any child who has not read at home will spend some of their break time reading with an adult.
2. Photos of class events, visits and successes will be shared through the Class Dojo app. Please make sure you check it regularly to see what is happening in your child’s class and use it as an opportunity to discuss with you child what they have been doing
Your child's 'Maths Passport' target for the first term will be 'Number bonds to 3,5 and 10), Say 1 more than any number between 0 and 20, Say 1 less than any number between 0 and 20' and 'Counting to 100' Maths passports are regularly updated when your child has shown us on a number of occasions that they are secure in the objective they are working on.
Should you have any queries then please let us know and we will try to answer them or alternatively use the dojo messaging service. Please note that these messages are not always picked up during the day during lesson time.
We are looking forward to working alongside your child in the coming year.
Welcome to Year 1!
