Welcome to Class 1

Welcome back to the final half term of year 1! I hope you had a lovely two-week break and have returned to school ready for our last half term together, which is full of exciting topics and learning opportunities. 

In Literacy, we will be exploring the book 'The Naughty Bus'. The children will be joining a mischievous toy bus on his exciting journey, producing some wonderful pieces of writing along the way. In Maths, we will continue to look at addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also be beginning to look at using standard units to measure objects.

Our new Science topic is 'Everyday materials' and the children will be exploring a variety of materials in order to begin to understand their simple physical properties. In History, the children will be exploring the question 'What was life like when our grandparents were children?' We will be identifying and describing similiarities and differences between our own childhood and the experiences that our grandparents may have had. 

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. 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 karate lesson every Friday. Please make sure they have a P.E. kit in school on these days.

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