See below for this Year's Long Term Plan.
Our theme this half term is 'Me Myself and I'.
Please look at the 'Homeschool link' documents below for details of what we are teaching.
How can you help us learn?
We make the most progress if we read every day.
Ask us questions about our books, talk through the stories with us and let us tell you what we know. There might be some tricky words in the books. Help us to understand what they mean so that we can try to use them ourselves. If we can't read yet, let us listen to you telling us other stories. We love sharing books with you! Our teachers will change our books every time we bring them back to school, as long as you have signed our Reading Records.
We learn the sounds that letters make. This can help us remember the simple sounds
of English. We can look at these videos if we get stuck on how to say the sounds.
Our teachers give us homework to help us carry on the work we do in class. Sometimes, we have a challenge and we will need your help. Other times, we will be able to do the work ourselves and might only need you to check that we are on track. Our Learning Logs get sent home on Friday and we should bring them back by Wednesday.
We are learning to spell tricky words. Help us by practising the ones we get stuck on. Here is the list of tricky words that we need to learn to read and spell by the end of Year 1.
It is very important that we know our number bonds to 10 and 20 and our 2,5 and 10 times tables. Here is a game that can help us learn this and we love playing it in class.
We ask all children to bring in a change of shoes to wear inside.
This helps to keep the classroom tidy. It is especially important now that the weather is changing! The children have a labelled shoe space just for them.
Our P.E. days:
Wednesday and Thursday
Thursday and Friday
Please ensure that your child brings their P.E. kit in their bag. This can be left in school on their peg.

A T-shirt (red if possible), a pair of shorts and a pair of school pumps or trainers.
