Maths This term we will cover the following topics;

How you can help:  You can help your child with maths by completing the weekly homework, which will be handed out every Friday, to be returned on the following Wednesday. 


Our topic will be 'Plants'. 


Part 1

In Year 1, homework is project based. We provide several ideas for projects for your child to complete over the half term with a celebration date in the last week of the half term. The aim of the homework is for you and your child to share their learning together and to enjoy their learning.

Part 2

Homework will be given every Friday and should be returned on the following Wednesday.  Homework will involve a spelling activity and a maths activity linked to the weeks learning. We understand that some children find homework tricky so we do endeavour to make the weekly tasks quick and fun.

Please don’t hesitate to speak to your class teacher if you have any further questions. 

Things to Know

PE will be on a Tuesday for both classes. Children will need a PE kit  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. Each child will have a weekly book changing day. Parents, please use the diary to tell us how your child reads at home, words they struggled with and if you feel the level of the book is not appropriate.
