smiley Spring Term 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

Well what amazing and creative work we received for the Homework Festival! We hoped the children enjoyed making their models and writing their stories and thank you for your support.

After Half Term we will be looking at early signs of spring and will be exploring Cherry Hinton Hall  to look for these. We will be observing the weather to compare it with winter weather.

Our topic has a History focus .We will be researching the Great Fire of London and deciding ;

"Was the Great Fire of London really GREAT?"


Reading and Phonics


It is essential that your child brings in their Reading Record every day. We welcome feedback from you so please feel free to write a comment about how your child is doing at home. Please read with your child every day- even if it is only for a few minutes.
It is also important that your child practises reading and spelling the Year 1  100 high frequency words in their reading record.


We learn phonics through Letters and Sounds. Please see the plan below.


YEAR 1 P.E. DAYS Tuesdays and Fridays
It is essential to bring indoor and  outdoor full P.E. kits every day and keep them in our P.E. box provided please. This includes a hooded top, jogging bottoms and outdoor trainers or plimsolls. We do P.E. in all weathers! We also participate in A.C.T. Active every afternoon so old trainers are useful! 




Please practise the 100 spellings (high frequency words) for KS1 Year 1. 


Please practise writing the small (lower case) letters of the alphabet. Remember the leads into the letters. Try to write some short words and sentences using these letters. Don't forget the capital letter and full stop.Now we are in our second term of Year 1, we are working on writing more short sentences in our work.
