What lovely weather we have had this weekend! I hope that you have made the most of it like we did. This week I am very happy to have an extra helper in Lilac, Chiara. Chiara is my cousin who is here for the week as part of her work experience. She cannot wait to get to meet the class who I talk about so much! This week we will be focused on recapping this terms learning ready for half term.
There will be no spellings or homework this week so this would be a great time to work through the packs given at parent's evening.
Thursday 25th May- Phonics workshop for Parents 3:30.
Friday 26th May- Half term, film afternoon, bring your own snacks!
Literacy: In Literacy we have been focusing on adverbs and identifying them in a sentence. At this point in the year, it is essential that your child can read AND write exception words, these were given in the work packs. Please continue to work on these with your child at home.
Maths: In maths we have been learning how to bridge 10. It is essential that we know our number bonds to 10 with super speed for this. For example 9+3=. To solve this your child needs to know that 9+1 makes ten then 2 more makes 12. We are also continuing to add and subtract near 10's for example, 21,62,43. We do this by adding then 10's and then some.
Wow! We haven now officially taught all of the new sounds! So in phonics, we are recapping our Switch it Spell it Sounds. We also have a big focus on suffixes 'ing', 'ed' 'er' and 'est'. I wonder if your child can practise some of these at home?
P.E: This will be on a Tuesday and Friday for Year 1. Please ensure long hair is tied back and that earrings are taken out.
Year 1 Spellings: Spellings will be sent home on a Wednesday for the children to practice. The children will be tested on these the following Wednesday. Please ensure their purple spelling folder is returned every Wednesday ready for the new spellings for the week. The children will start with 5 words and work their way up to 10 words in total. 8 words will be based on the phonics sounds which we are learning that week and 2 words will be high-frequency words for Year 1.
Homework: The Year 1 children will have a black homework folder that will be sent home with work inside to complete. This will be sent home on Fridays and is expected to be returned to school by the following Wednesday. Please encourage your child to ensure this is completed.
Reading: Please support your child and ensure they read at home every night (even just for 15 minutes) as this will support them greatly. The books will only be changed if they have read them at home so ensure you have signed their reading books.
Library Books: Library books will be given out and collected in on Fridays. You are encouraged to read these books with your child as often as possible to increase your childs love of reading.
Here you will find the curriculum for Lilac Class for Year 1.
Under each term you will find the curriculum overview and the spellings for that term.
