Please continue to hear your child read daily: this should be a mixture of their scheme books and a range of texts including fiction and non-fiction. Remember to include more challenging texts that you can read to your child to support him/her in understanding sentence structure and correct grammar. Reading should include real life opportunities like menus, shop signs, magazines etc. Remember to write regularly in the reading record to keep us informed of your child’s reading. Books matching your child’s book band will be uploaded onto Bug Club. Please give your child the opportunity to read these.
Remember to practise reading the graphemes which are in the middle of the reading record and on the sound mat that was sent home earlier in the year. The phonics we will be learning in class will be sent out with the learning overview the Friday before.
Please support your child in practising these throughout the week. On Wednesdays children practice some of the ‘Year 1 High Frequency Words’ in their spelling lesson. Find the links at the bottom of this page.
Please practise number bonds to 10 (and 20 when appropriate).
1SA will have their games lesson on Wednesday and 1P will have theirs on Friday. Until October half term, the children will come into school wearing their PE kit and wear it the whole day. After October half term, children will bring their PE kits in and get changed at school. Please practice undoing and doing buttons and ties with your child.
How can you help?
Please ensure you child has a glue stick in school labelled with their name.
Please ensure ALL school items, particularly jumpers, ties and water bottles are labelled.
In order to promote independence, please encourage your child to be aware of letters in their bags that they need to pass on to us.
This is a nut free school, so please make sure your child doesn’t bring food with nuts in it.
