Week commencing 20/05/19
On Monday we have a concert performance of 'Professor Astro Cat' by the Britten Sinfonia School touring company. This has been organised by Mrs Hayes, our music teacher. We will be celebrating Environmental Health week by taking part in lots of projects to help make us more aware of where we live. Year 1 will be planting seeds in the back playground among other activities such as litter picking and recycling. Please see this weekly bulletin for more information on this and how you can help at home.
This week we will be reading the book How to grow a dinosaur by Caryl Hart and begin to write setting and character descriptions.
Please continue to practise spelling the common exception words from the word lists sent home as many children are still not spelling these correctly.
We will be recapping on counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
Please help your child practice counting in 2s, 5s and 10s at home.
As part of this terms homework I have asked that children practice counting from 0-100 forwards and backwards. Many children struggle counting backwards from 100-0 therefore any extra support at home would be much appreciated.
On Tuesday, Mrs Hillier will be continuing her work on time.
Mrs Hayes will start her weather topic.
Mrs Hillier will be starting our R.E topic on people.
Mr Sanderson will continue working on ball skills during Wednesday PE lessons.
This is just a reminder that information about what your child's class is doing is updated weekly on this class page. Teachers will post what is coming up, how you can help your child and suggest things that you could do at home. This is because we feel it benefits children to look at the curriculum before they are taught it and helps you know what is happening in the class before it happens rather than after it has occurred.
In the same way homework is called 'preview homework' and will focus on what the children are going to be learning about. We feel it is helpful to your child if they complete preview homework suggestions or activities. However we know that families are busy, have activities out of school etc and that this is not always possible. Therefore preview homework is optional and your child should not be penalised for not completing it and you do not need to provide an explanation to the teacher as to why it has not been done. There may be rewards and incentives for those who do complete their preview homework, but no sanctions for those who do not.
Please remember to check this page for weekly forthcoming class information and copies of preview homework posted.
