Class 1 Teacher

Welcome to Class 1

I hope you have all had a lovely week off and are ready for the new half term! The children have had a fabulous first half term and have learnt so much already. I am so impressed with how much they have progressed and cannot wait to see how they continue to do so over the next half term.

This half term we have lots of exciting topics to explore. In literacy we are going to be learning all about Fairy Stories and will even have a go at writing our own! In Maths we will continue to develop our knowledge of numbers to 100 whilst moving on to place value and addition and subtraction using money. In Science our topic is 'Animals including humans'. We will be learning about our own bodies and different types of animals including; mammals, reptiles and birds. This half term we will also begin to look at some History and our topic is going to be 'Bonfire night'.

Please see the curriculum overview below for more information.

Phonics
Your child will continue to have a phonics lesson four times a week. Phonics teaches the children how to read by linking sounds (phonemes) and the symbols that represent them (grahemes, or letter groups). The phonics scheme we follow at Abbott is 'Read, Write, Inc'. If you would like to help your child with their phonics at home, you will find lots of great resources onliine. Alternatively, I am happy to provide you with some further information on how you can support their phonics skills.

Home Learning
The children will be given one Literacy/Phonics challenge and one Maths challenge every Tuesday for home learning. This work will be due the following Monday. Home learning club is available to all children every Thursday 3:15pm-4:00pm. Homework that is not brought back on time will be completed during a break time detention. Spelling will be given out every Monday and a spelling test will be done every Friday.

Reading at home
Children will be given a reading book to take home and they should read every day at home. Please send in your child's reading book and record so that we can change their reading book when they are ready for a new one.

P.E.
The children will have a MCFC football lesson every Wednesday and a Salford Red Devils rugby lesson every Friday. They will also have an outdoor P.E. lesson with our school Sports Coach, Miss Ashton, every Friday morning. Please make sure they have a P.E. in school on these days.

If you have any questions about anything, please don't hesitate to speak with me.
