Help required ... Again!
Our outside area needs some TLC again. Following a harsh winter, it needs a bit of love and attention. If any of our parents are willing to help with a bit of painting and gardening, I would be most grateful. We are hoping to lay turf on the newly created area in in the next couple of weeks. I also have big plans for a woodwork bench so the children can do some more making and building (which they LOVE to do) so if anyone has any expertise in this area, please do let me know.
Phonics: Tips and advice
Please watch the video clip through the link below for tips and advice on how to pronounce the phonemes and graphemes.
There has been great excitement in year 1 this week at the prospect of 'Homework'. Thank you for encouraging your child to do this homework. Hopefully it is an enjoyable exercise. Remember to have it back to school by: Wednesday, 16th May.
Early next week, we will be sending home a 'Sound Mat' with a note attached. I will also put some tips and advice on this web page so please do have a look. Please do come in and ask if anything is unclear. Thank you in advance for your help.
Summer Term 2018
Focus Children week beginning 30th April 2018: Aaron, Charlotte, James S, Zachary. Please check your child's book bag for their focus form, complete it and return it to school by Monday. This will be the last round of Focus Children this year as we focus on Phonics Screening, Maths Mastery and preparing for Year 2!
Homework: Please continue to listen to your child read daily. This is so important & can earn them challenge stars! There will be a slight increase in the amount of homework set this term. This is to prepare them (and you!) for Year 2. Please check this class page regularly for updates.
Reminder about PE kit
Please remember to send your child's PE kit back to school on Monday. We have PE on a Monday afternoon so we will need PE kits for the first day.
We are very busy in year 1! We are rehearsing for our Christmas production, we have celebrated one of our Saints, Saint Andrew, we have continued with our Space theme and we have started getting the glitter and the decorations out for Christmas!
