Things to remember
 
Please send you child to school with a coat or jacket as the weather is so variable at the moment and a named water bottle.
 
Thank you. 
 
 
Outdoor PE is on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please make sure your child has suitable outdoor clothing that is clearly labelled.  
 
 
Your child can become a Star Reader if they read at home at least 3 times each week. They will receive a certificate and prize at the end of each half term if they read regularly at home. Please record each time you hear your child read in the reading record. Reading records will be checked every Monday. Regular reading at home develops good writing skills and expands vocabulary.

  • Count on and back in 1s, from different starting numbers.  Work to 50.

Phonics
At the end of Year 1 your child will take part in the Phonics Screening Check. The check will consist of 20 real words and 20 alien (nonsense words). Have a go at reading the words below.  
In English, the children are learning a new text titled 'Where's Teddy?' Can your child retell this story to you using the pictures as a visual reminder and the actions we have practised in class?

Eddy had a best friend called Teddy. He was brown and fluffy. One day, Eddy looked for Teddy but couldn’t find him! Where could he be?

Eddy went to the forest at the end of the garden. He could see tall trees, muddy puddles and scary shadows. But Teddy was nowhere to be seen.

Eddy searched at the beach down the road. He called and called but could only hear crashing waves, squawking seagulls and whistling wind. Unfortunately, Teddy was not there either.

Eddy was exhausted. He wanted to go to bed. He felt sad and lonely. Eddy trudged to his bedroom and saw his warm, cosy bed. Pulling back the soft covers, there was a lump under his pillow. What could it be?

“Teddy!” shouted Eddy. "You were here all along!" Eddy and Teddy huddled and cuddled.

  • Eating healthy food (including five portions of fruit and vegetables a day!)
  • Drinking plenty of water
  • Exercising regularly
  • Having a happy attitude 
  • Getting plenty of sleep at night!
How else can you keep healthy?

6.10.20
In our History lessons, we have been learning all about the past! We talked about life before washing machines and how hard it was to do the washing in the olden days! The children had lots of fun washing clothes on a washboard with soap and drying the clothes using a mangle!
What hard work it must have been!
