Welcome to Class 1!
This half term we will be working on the topic “Beside the seaside”. We will learn about the location of the continents and oceans of the world, find out about the coasts around the uk and the geographical features of the seaside. We will compare our home town to a seaside town and learn about the seaside in the past.
In English we will be reading the Rainbow Fish, the Lighthouse keepers lunch and other stories linked to our topic. We will focus on writing meaningful and accurate sentences including basic punctuation and consistent letter formation. In Maths we will be learning to count to and across 100, count in multiples of 2, 5 and 10, solve practical problems for length and height, addition and subtraction and 2D shape.
PE this half term is on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please make sure your child has both an indoor and outdoor kit.
Reading books are changed on your child’s reading day which is on the front of their reading record. We give 2 books at a time but you can ask for more if these do not last the week. Please listen to your child for 10 minutes every day and write a comment in their reading record. Once per week ask one of the reading questions in the front and write your child’s response.
Homework books are given out on Fridays and should be returned on Wednesdays. The homework tasks can be completed in any order.
