Year 1 2019 - 2020
Year 1 - Spring Term 2 - 2020
We have another exciting half term ahead of us. Our main topic theme is 'Stepping Back in Time'. This will incorporate many aspects of the curriculum, including looking into how we have changed over the years. We are still continuing to find out about people who have influenced our lives. In English we are starting with our very special text 'The Curious Case of the Missing Mammoth'. This is a wonderful story all about a boy, Oscar, who goes on an adventure in a magical museum of curious creatures.
For more details please see our Topic Web and Knowledge Organisers in the links below.
This term, Mrs Wright will teach the children every Monday and Tuesday. Mrs Cavanagh will teach on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The children will be supported by Mrs Marke every morning.
Reading books will be changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning, between 8.45 and 9am.
PE kits will be needed in school every day. Please ensure that these are clearly named (as well as all other uniform and coats). PE lessons will be on Mondays and Thursdays, but we will also be doing extra sessions at different points in the week. The children will require jogging bottoms/leggings and a hoody as well as their shorts & t.shirt for when we do our Commando Joe sessions.
Please ensure that for enrichment activities, children have a separate kit. PE kits should not be used.
Homework will be set each week on a Wednesday. It will usually consist of a Mathletics activity, a mental maths challenge, and a list of words to learn on Spellodrome, as well as daily reading. Each half term we will also set a topic-related task or project. Your child’s mathletics/spellodrome login details will be in their new reading records.
