Year 1 2019 - 2020
Year 1 - Spring Term 2020
Happy New Year!
We have another exciting term ahead of us. Our main topic theme is 'Up, Up and Away'. This will incorporate many aspects of the curriculum, looking into different travel and transport from the past, right up to the present day. In English we are starting with our very special text 'The Lion Inside'.
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.
