Spring Term 1 2020
Year 1 arrival time is from 8.40am on the Key Stage 1 playground and Year 1 collection time is 3.05pm from the Key Stage 1 gate at the front of the school. This has been working well over the past term, thank you for your support.
This half term we are continuing with our transition into a more formal style of learning. We will continue to follow ‘Maths No Problem’ lessons for our Maths – looking first at shapes and patterns before moving onto measurement where we will begin to lean how to measure and compare. In English will will continue to use ‘Talk for Writing’ to learn our new story ‘The Three Little Pigs’. This half term we learn and then innovate this familiar ‘defeat the baddie story’ with the aim of then creating our very own story using all of our new story writing skills and techniques.
Our topic this half term is ‘Childhood’. This topic focuses on the different stages of our lives and how we change. We will take a look at childhood in the past and play some popular games from years ago. We will be outside for PE on Wednesdays. Please ensure your child has a suitable PE kit in school everyday as we will be working around the weather, therefore PE may be on a different day some weeks.
Reading continues to be an important part of the day. Please ensure that your child reads at home daily and that this is recorded in their reading record. Your child’s reading book and reading record need to be sent into school daily to enable us to read at school, change books and monitor your child’s reading progress. Phonics will be taught daily at 9.05am.
Due to the current circumstances interactions with staff will be limited. If you have any questions, queries or photos that you would like to share please email me at
