Welcome to Year 1
Class teacher: Miss Condon
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Barnes
Thank you for visiting our Class page. We hope you find lots of information about the exciting things happening in our classroom. On this page you will also be able to find the latest class newsletter, useful website links and homework help, photographs and much more.
This half term the children are learning about the Arctic (Brrr!).
The children will learn about the location of Arctic, life in the Arctic and famous explorers such as Shackleton. If children have any books, resources, toys or information about the Arctic they can bring them in and put them on our Topic display in the classroom. Please see the Curriculum Outline on the website to find out more about what the children will be learning about.
In English we are reading:
The Rainbow Bear by Michael Morpurgo
In Maths we are learning:
Number and Place Value.
On Monday children will bring home their reading book. They will change this book every Monday as long as they bring back the previous book. Their stage reading book matches their comprehension level so if they are reading the words easily, ask them questions about the story throughout to help improve their understanding. As the children bring home one book a week please read other books, magazines, etc with your child at home to extend.
This term our PE sessions will be on a Thursday and a Friday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school and that it is labelled.
This year children will be given a Topic Homework Task sheet consisting of 8-10 homework activities. It is up to the children which of these homework challenges they complete and they are to be handed in fortnightly on the following dates:
Wednesday 27th September
Wednesday 11th October
Wednesday 1st November
Wednesday 15th November
Wednesday 29th November
On a week where the Topic Homework Task is not due, children will be given a Maths based from Education City to complete.
Spellings will be given out on Fridays and will be tested the following Friday.
