Class 1

Year One - Term Three Newsletter

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome back to Term 3! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday with family and friends. Thank you for the kind messages, cards and gifts that myself, Miss Muggivan and Mrs Parnham received at Christmas. Thank you for your continued support and for all of your help to make our KS1 Nativity such a success.

This term our topic is based around the book ‘The Jolly Postman’. Our curriculum will be planned around fairy tales and we will have a Geography focus particularly drawing maps and following routes on a map.

English – we will be focusing on traditional tales. Children will be writing stories focusing on letter formation, capital letters and full stops. We will continue to learn our phase 5 phonics beginning to blend CCVCC and learn alternative sounds for spellings. Please continue to revise these sounds and blend words at home.

Maths – during term 3 we will be focusing on addition and subtraction 0-20 and place value within 50.

Topic – within Art and Geography we will be focusing on maps.

Science - this term we will continue our Science focus of materials and seasonal change.

P.E. – is on a Monday and Friday, please ensure your child has the required kit. We will need an indoor kit. Shorts, t-shirt (house colour) and plimsolls.

 

If you have any queries please do not hesitate in contacting the office and I can arrange to meet you.

Regards,

Mrs Hepburn
