Welcome back to Year YR/1E
Welcome back after the half term break. I hope you have all had a lovely time and are ready to complete the Summer term. This half term will be really busy. We will be learning about plants in different habitats, including hot and cold places. We will also be linking this work to finding out about different continents. Our Literacy Focus will be stories by Jeanne Willis, including Bog Baby and The King of Tiny Things.
Please visit this page regularly as it will be updated with photos of our work and links to support learning. Take a look at our planning documents to find out more about what we will be learning this year.
Below are details of your child's weekly routine and any other additional information that may be useful.
Children will require their P.E. kits every Monday and Friday. They should leave it in school until the half term holiday. This will ensure that they don’t regularly forget their P.E. kit. Please ensure that all items of your child's PE Kit is clearly labelled. The children will need either pumps or trainers as the children will participate in outdoor and indoor activities throughout the term. If your child doesn’t have the correct footwear, they may not be able to participate in certain activities, which would have a negative impact on their physical development.
Reading Books / Homework
Reading Books & Lending Library – The children will change their reading books once a week on a Friday. On this day your child will receive two reading books to read during the course of the week. Please ensure your child brings their books every Friday for changing. Could you please sign their reading journal to show that your child has read their reading books? Remember, it is important you read with your child for fifteen minutes every evening. Later in the term the Lending library books will also be given out every Friday, please ensure your child completes their book review so they can collect points.
Spellings will be given out most Fridays and they should be practiced and returned by the following Wednesday.
Learning log – Children will be given learning log challenges each term which are linked to the work they have been covering throughout the topic. This needs to be handed in the following week, please take this opportunity to work with your child and tackle the challenges with a creative, imaginative mind that celebrates your child's ideas.
Please do not hesitate to see me after the school day if you have any questions or need any further information.
Thank you for your anticipated support.
Mrs Ellis & the YR / 1E team
