We shall be exploring a number of different topics including exploring what are five senses are, where we live and where we are from.
We shall be identifying who is our family and looking at our family history.
The children will be having fun exploring the art of sketching and will produce a self portrait by the end of the context.
Year 1 have PE on a Tuesday and Wednesday.
Please come in wearing full PE kit on these days.
SUMMER HOLIDAY HOMEWORK
Over the Summer holiday we would like the children to create their own bubble maps all about them.
Here are some examples of bubble maps about your teachers:
The children will be bringing home an envelope to put three items that are personal to them (that are alright to stay in their trays) to share with the class.
We will also be playing a guess who game using the superhero forms the children will be filling out. Please can you help your child fill out the form. There is a copy of the form below.
Each day please may you complete at least one lesson on reading eggs/express.
Reading is fundamental to all learning! Please help your child to reach their full potential and read with them at least 5 times a week.
Read everyday. This could be books, newspapers, magazines, online.
Once you have read, try to answer questions about what you have read:
- The author uses this word ______What does it mean?
- The writer uses words such as _____to describe. What does this tell you about _______?
- Who? What? Where? When?
- Why do you think _______?
- How do you know that _______?
- What is the main message of the text?
- What do you think will happen next?
- What do you think would happen if _______?
Every week the children will take home a homework sheet.
The homework will have their spellings on, along with an indication of which Maths test they are on. Please practice these ready for the tests.
Maths test = Wednesday
Spellings = Thursday
Please hand your homework book back in on a Wednesday.
At the bottom of each sheet is a brief explanation of the learning they have been doing this week, plus some talk homework about a topic they will be learning the following week.
