Dear Parents,


Welcome to the Summer term.  We hope you have had a lovely Easter break.  We are looking forward to starting our new topic: Creatures of Our Planet.  This will include learning about animals from around the world; locating their habitats on maps, exploring how animals adapt to their environment, learning animal facts and using the internet for research, linking many of our curriculum subjects together.


This term there will be a greater emphasis on: comprehension of reading, passing the Phonics test, refining writing skills including presentation and securing understanding of numbers.  We are hoping to have all our PE sessions outside allowing us to experience a variety of ball games and athletic activities. Please note that PE is now on Tuesdays and Fridays.


Miss Campbell loves animals and can't wait to learn some new facts.  Mr Eardley is looking forward to visiting Twycross Zoo.  Miss Scott is very excited to make clay animal tiles.  Miss Smith is keen to get the children outside and learning.


Remember it is really important to read daily with your child to ensure they understand the text (including meanings of words and the story as a whole), to improve their sight recall and to continue building confidence in blending words, using their phonics.  Spelling homework will continue to be due in every Monday.  All the information you need to support your child, with the learning in class can be found weekly on the website and any additional homework set.


Thanking you in advance for your continued support and wishing us all a fantastic Summer term,

From the Year 1 Team

We've had fun making our Diva lamps and they look fantastic.

Look how our classrooms are changing with our brilliant work.
