During this term (Term 2) our topic is 'The Magic Toymaker', the children will have the opportunity to share their favourite toys, become toy designers and learn about toys from the past. We will also be exploring materials and their properties.
During Term 1 the children have really enjoyed using their new maths books and learning through our new 'Maths No Problem' scheme. This term (Term 2) they will be continuing to develop their knowledge of numbers, addition and subtraction
as well as learning about position.
Thank you for all your support in helping the children to practise their 2 times tables, we have been so impressed with their progress so far. This term (Term 2) we will continue to develop confidence in multiples of 2 and begin to learn the 10 times table.
In Year One we encourage the children to read everyday and the home school reading books MUST come into school everyday even if they have not finished the book.
The children have the opportunity to change their reading book everyday and we will keep you updated when your child has read with an adult in school. We really value your comments, so please sign and comment whenever your child has read a book. If you would like to keep the book a little longer or revisit it at a later time, please let us know.
ERIC Time (Everyone Reads In Class) will continue every Friday afternoon. To encourage and inspire the children to enjoy reading, all children and adults in class will be reading at this time.
ERIC TIME has been a great success across the school and we look forward to continuing to inspire a love of reading this term .
This term the children are very excited to use the school swimming pool. They will also take part in a games lesson each week so we would like children to keep their full kit in school at all times. This should include shorts, t-shirts and plimsolls and jogging bottoms.

Please can all items of uniform be clearly named, this includes PE kit. Children find it very hard to identify their own tie or jumper!
The children will be able to borrow a book from our school library each week. Please could you ensure the book is well looked after and returned every week.

If you have any queries or would like further information, please do not hesitate to ask the Year 1 team.
The children will be receiving a reading comprehension and a phonics activity sheet each week. They will receive these on Friday and they need to be returned by the following Wednesday. On Mondays the children will receive times tables to practise which they will be tested on each Friday. In year 1 we focus on multiples of 2, 10 and 5 and the children can progress through a bronze, silver and gold challenge for each.
Please note that we do not give spelling words each week, instead they will receive a list of tricky words at the start of each term.
