Year 1 (Class Teacher – Mrs Hambrier)
Learning Goal: Autumn 2017
Autumn 2017 flow chart outlines the details of our topics and curriculum content for this term. This half term it will be ‘ Funny bones’ and the second half will be ‘Colour’. Funny Bones cover all elements of ourselves: who we are, our lives, our senses, our bodies and feelings.
A few reminders:
Book bags need to be brought to school every day with the guided reading and record books in the plastic wallet provided. Guided reading books are sent home weekly and should be re-read together. Please write a comment in your child’s Reading Record Book. Please read to your child a range of books and talk about the book. Comprehension is a big part of reading as well as decoding, so please ask lots of question. Children can also borrow books from the class library and change them as often as they wish. Please encourage your child to do this. You are very welcome to come into the classroom after school and choose a book together.
Phonics is a major part of our learning as it helps with reading and writing. There are many websites that you can access to help support your child’s learning; please visit the websites and if you need any support with this do pop in and ask.
The children will need a named water bottle each day and also a healthy snack for playtime. Suitable snacks are fruit, vegetables, cheese and cereal bars.
Please ensure that all items of clothing, including school uniform and full PE Kit are clearly labelled with your child’s name. PE kit consists of a red school tee shirt, black shorts and black plimsolls for indoor sessions.
Each week a Discovery task will be set for homework; this is based on practical, research, and/or projects, to build language, reasoning, explanation and problem solving skills. Spelling homework will also be issued from January onwards along with talk for writing.
