Class 1 2017 - 2018

Miss Sykes

Class 1 Teacher

Welcome to Class 1

I am Miss Sykes and I will be your child's new class teacher for this year. Miss Castle and Miss Saed will also be working alongside me in Class 1 and we are all very excited to watch how the children progress during the Autumn Term!

This half term we will be learning about lots of interesting topics. In Literacy, we will be learning all about dinosaurs and completing some exciting wriitng activities relating to them. In Maths, we will be focusing mainly on counting skills, addition and subtraction. Please see the curruculum 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.

I am looking forward to the exciting year ahead!
