smiley    Autumn Term 2 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome back.We hope you and your family all had a lovely half term break.

We had an amazing time at Burwell Windmill and Museum and have plenty of photos to show you all!

This term our topic is called "What Happens at Night- time?"

We will be looking closely at how we are gradually moving from autumn to winter. We will be observing the weather and the changing seasons. Look out for our new dark and light area in role-play where we will explore light and dark . We will also be talking about nocturnal animals and  what we at night-time-including getting ready for bed. We will talk about how some people  celebrate  festivals of  "Light" and how to keep safe on Bonfire Night.


Best wishes,
Rebecca Dawkins and the Year 1 team.

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 (Wednesdays 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!




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 using these letters.
