Welcome to 1S
Welcome back after the half term break. We hope you have all enjoyed a relaxing time with your family and friends.
Hot and Cold
To begin this half term, the children will be learning about Remembrance day and why we have it. The children will create their own poppy collage and find out about its symbolism. We will then move on to Geography-focussed learning through our new topic Hot and Cold. The children will learn about the four countries and capital cities of the United Kingdom and identify daily and seasonal weather patterns. Our learning will then move further afield, enabling the children to explore hot and cold places around the world.
The children will continue to be given 3 reading books at a time. Please try to read each day with your child, even if it is only a couple of pages, and note this down in their reading record. The children will be given a specific day of the week and their books will be changed on that day if they have been completed and their reading record is signed. During and after completion of the book, please spend time discussing the setting, characters and key words from the story to further your child's understanding of the text. Each child will be bringing a 'Tricky Word' bookmark home with their reading books, containing a list of words which are not phonetically plausible. Please could you support your child to read through these words regularly.
Children are asked to bring their books into school on a daily basis as this will enable us to write a comment in their Reading Diary when they have taken part in either Guided or Individual reading.
Our class have P.E. on a Tuesday and Friday each week. Please ensure your child has their full, named P.E. kit in school on these days.
Please ensure that all items of school uniform are named so that if they are left behind, we can return them to the correct owners.
Our healthy snack scheme will continue this half term. If your child is taking part in the scheme please ensure that you send in their money every Monday, or at the beginning of each half term/term.
