Welcome to Class 1

Welcome back! I hope that you had a lovely Easter break and that you are looking forward to another half term full of exciting new topics.

In Literacy we will be studying two new books; 'The Rabbit Problem' and 'Peter Rabbit'. The children will be producing pieces of writing, both fiction and non-fiction, based on these texts. In Maths we will begin to look at fractions and revisit multiplication and division in more depth.

Our new Science topic is 'Spring and Summer' and we will be spending time observing the changes that are happening now that spring has begun. In Geography, the children will be exploring the question 'Can all animals live in Collyhurst?' We will be finding out about animals that live in other continents and comparing their habitat with where we live.

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 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.
