Year 4 have been doing drop everything and read sessions. We all stop what we are doing, get comfortable and read our books. The children really enjoyed it and it was a great opportunity to spend some time learning to love reading! https://t.co/jx4eUrpM8f

Year 1 - Squirrels and Frogs

Spring Term 2020

Welcome back! We trust you all had lots of festive fun and are looking forward to a new term together.

 

Maths

In Maths, we are partitioning numbers using the part, part whole model.  We will also be consolidating our understanding of subtraction and addition.  We will be looking at measures; length, weight, height and volume.

 

English

We will be consolidating our phonetic knowledge especially split digraphs and sound families. We will also be focusing on extending our sentences by using conjunctions, (and, because, so) and other punctuation marks. We will be reading Pirate Girl.

 

Foundation Subjects

This term we will be focusing on Geography and Music. In Geography, we will be learning about where we live and our surrounding areas. We will also be looking at maps of our local area and even go on a learning walk! In Music, we will follow and offer simple musical instructions.

 

Science

This term we will be learning about Everyday Materials and Seasonal Changes. We will be linking both of these to our topic work.

 

PE lessons

As the weather improves will be going outside during some lessons so please ensure the children have tracksuit bottoms and tops.

 

Frogs: Monday and Thursday

Squirrels: Wednesday and Thursday

Homework

Literacy and Maths homework will now be online.  The homework will be an appropriate level to their learning and will need to be completed.  Specific Maths homework linked to their learning will be released each Wednesday and the children will have one week to complete it. We will still be using the Reading Journals and sending the children home with reading books each week. Children will continue to read with an adult in a guided reading group four times a week.

 

We look forward to working with you throughout the year.

Mrs Blanking, Mrs Monkhouse and Miss Wade
