Spring Term 2
We hope you had an enjoyable half term break! We look forward to seeing you all back in school and ready for lots more learning and fun. Please continue to support by bringing your child to school every day and on time, reading at home and producing wonderful pieces of homework. We have got a very exciting term planned for the children. Our Curriculum will focus on; Space. This is a busy term with lots of exciting things planned and we hope your children enjoy it as much as we do. We look forward to seeing you in school, and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask any member of staff in Year 1.
This term children in Albany class will be focusing on books linked to our Space theme in Curriculum. We will be exploring books based around space and discoveries. Children will use punctuation such as question marks and exclamation marks in their work, as well as ensuring they include adjectives and conjunctions. They will begin to create posters and fact files.
In Maths we will focus on Place value to 50 and then move onto Length and Height and Weight and Volume. Children will be encouraged to develop their reasoning and problem solving skills in maths by explaining and proving how they know the answer.
Our overall theme in Spring is 'Space'. The children will be focusing on Design and Technology this term, whilst bringing in aspects of History, Geography and ICT.
This term we will be doing PE on Wednesday. This half term we will have primary stars teaching our PE, therefore please ensure that your child has an appropriate PE kit with them with all clothing labelled. Thank you.
We ask that your child has their book bag with them every day. We encourage you to read with your children at home to win one of our RED TED bears and accessories. Please write and sign your child's reading record each time you do - this helps me to determine whether the reading has taken place in school or at home and ensures I can keep a reliable record for the end of term. If your child has finished their book please change them in Camelot. A member of staff will be more than happy to show you where Camelot is. We will aim to read with your child at least once every 2 weeks.
Keep a look out for our homework menu's and newsletters which will keep you up to date with what we are learning this term. Please bring in any work that your child has done so this can be shared with the rest of the class. We love seeing what you and your children create at home and we want to embrace this at school.
