This term in year 1 our topic is Moon Zoom. Our learning will be based around a variety of space stories and non-fiction including Whatever next by Jill Murphy and Beegu by Alexis Deacon. We will begin the term with some non=fiction, learning about all about the Sun and the Moon along with some planets in our Solar System. We will find out all about Neil Armstrong and the first Moon landing.
We will also have a planetarium experience, write factfiles, retell stories and make our own rocket and space buggy and much more!
Class 1's P.E sessions this half term will take place on a Tuesday and Friday. Please can you make sure that your child has suitable P.E kit in school on these days and ensure that ALL clothes are fully labelled with your child’s name. Please could you also ensure that
earrings are removed on these days so that your child is able to take part in the lesson. Some of these lessons may take place outside so please ensure your child is provided with suitable kit for indoor and outdoor PE. On Tuesday our P.E lesson will be lead by Active Fusion coaches.
To keep our school environment clean could children please have a change of indoor shoes or slippers. There is a space in the classroom for children to keep their shoes, we really would like to keep our carpet area clean.
A pack of spellings has been sent home for your child to learn weekly. Year 1 spelling test will take place every Wednesday, We thank you for your help in supporting your child with this.
Book bags should be brought into school daily, so that the children can have them written in by staff if they read in school time. The children receive a special award in assembly for every 50 reads so please continue to fill in the reading diaries.
School reading books will be changed weekly in class. Listening to your child read for just ten minutes each day can have a significant impact on their learning.
Children will be given spellings to practise on a weekly basis,they are also expected to read daily.
Additional maths, phonics and SPaG homework may be given weekly also.
