Year 1 Phonics Workshop - Monday 12th February, 9:30-10:30am
Mrs Mee would like to invite you to a Phonics workshop to discuss the screening check that is carried out at the end of Year 1. This is to help prepare your children and give you the best means of supporting them when they are at home.
A letter is on its way home for you to sign and return to school to tell us if you would like to attend.
Hope to see you there!
A very big hello to you all and welcome back after the Christmas holidays! I am really excited to be working with the children for the rest of the year and look forward to meeting you all at Parent’s Evening.
Thank you for your patience at home time; it is much appreciated. I promise I will get quicker at recognising you all, but your children’s safety is very important to me so I like to be sure you’re taking the right ones home.
There will be lots of exciting things happening in class and we will keep you updated.
If you have any concerns then please pop and see me after school and we can sort them out.
Thank you for your continued support.
In Literacy we will be focussing on using our phonics more in our writing as well as continuing to practise those real and alien words. We will also be looking at understanding what we are reading and answering comprehension questions.
In Maths we will continue to develop their addition and subtraction skills as well as looking at multiplication and division. We will also look at shapes and fractions as part of our lessons. All in a really fun and interactive way!
Learning Focus – I am extremely excited about our topic this term as we get to focus on the time period 2000 – 2009!
There was a fabulous selection of girl and boy bands present during this time equally some rather pop-tastic tunes! As well as some monumental events, such as the Millennium itself and many more that we will be looking at over this term.
PE sessions will be on a Wednesday and a Thursday.
Children may come into school in their PE kit on Wednesdays but please remember to send their uniform in for afterwards!
A few reminders:
P.E. - Correct PE kit is essential please and no jewellery to be worn.
Homework – Please support us with this as it helps the children continue and their learning from the week. Homework is due in on a Wednesday please. If your child is struggling then let me know and I will find time to help them with it one lunch time.
