Welcome to Class One

Teachers: Mrs Morgan & Mrs Hobbs

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Wilson and Mrs Colpitts

CLASS INFORMATION

Homework will be given on a Friday and returned by the following Wednesday. This should be children’s own work and they should spend roughly 30 minutes on each piece. Children should ensure it is completed to the best of their ability. Homework consists of spellings, maths and topic.

Daily reading is essential. It is still beneficial to listen to children read at this age, and discussion of texts once children have read really helps their understanding. Reading to your child is also extremely important as it supports their learning even in Years 5 and 6. Reading records will be checked daily.

Spellings will be sent home each week ready to be learnt for a test the following week.

Mental Arithmetic Maths homework will be sent home weekly. Please complete one page each week.

Times tables – we will play the Golden 100 Times Tables game each week so don’t forget to work on them at home. “Hit the button” is a great web based game that will help you learn them.

PE lessons are on Wednesdays. No earrings and suitable footwear please. All PE kit and uniform should be labelled. Please provide your child with a water bottle. Swimming will be on Fridays during the Spring term.

Please ensure your child has an art shirt/apron in their bag.

Your help in ensuring children have the right resources each day is brilliant. However, as children reach the top of the school a sense of responsibility and independence is even better! It will prove invaluable once they reach secondary school.

SPRING TERM 2020

Welcome back Class One! We hope you all had a wonderful break and feel well rested for the busy term ahead. We would like to thank you all for our incredibly thoughtful gifts and cards. The children have already made a fantastic start to the term.

We’ve got a busy term coming up. It is full of lots of exciting learning which I’m sure the children will love!

Literacy
In literacy we will explore new texts in detail and using them to form the basis of our writing. During reading lessons we are exploring a range of texts types to build on our skills. SPAG lessons are on a Tuesday; children will be practising different skills each week and we will incorporate these into our writing.

Maths
In Maths we are looking at data. We will be exploring pie charts, conversion and line graphs. We will continue our Friday ‘Problem Solving’ lessons to build upon the skills we are learning during the week. In Arithmetic lessons children will be exploring division and beginning to look at long division.

RE
Our RE lessons will be focused on exploring Christianity and Easter. We are looking at why Jesus is important to the Christian faith.

Science
In Science we are going to be learning about electricity – this will form the basis of this terms homework grid.

Geography
In Geography we will be exploring locational knowledge; looking at longitude, latitude, hemispheres and time zones.

SATS

SATS are fast approaching. This is the perfect opportunity to invest in some work books to help your child at home to support them in their learning.
