Things to Know

PE will be on a Monday and Thursday for 1S (Miss Rorke) And Monday and Friday for 1M. Children will need a PE kit for those days that can be left in class over the half term.  The kit should include a white t-shirt, black shorts/leggings/tracksuit bottoms, a black tracksuit top, white socks and black trainers. Please make sure all of the kit is clearly labelled with your child's name. 

Please bring your book bag (with books and diary) every day. Your teacher will read with you and you will have a weekly book changing day which will be displayed on the classroom door and a note made in your reading diary to let you know when this is. Parents, please use the diary to tell us how your child read at home, words they struggled with and if you feel the level of the book was not appropriate.

Our core question in Summer 1 is "Can you grow a Jackfruit in Leytonstone?" We will be looking at the book 'Jim and the beanstalk' to further explore growing and to create a moving picture.  

Phonics plays an important part in the Year 1 curriculum.  The children will continue to have daily phonics sessions to support their reading and writing.
