The expectation continues this term for the children to read five times a week which is vital in supporting your child to develop reading skills and fluency as well as practising their phonic knowledge to decode words and spot sounds they have learnt. Please ensure you sign their reading diary when your child has read as they will be checked throughout the week.
Don't forget you also have lots of great books to read on you Bug Club page.
This half term we will be looking at the lives of Significant people. In English our focus will be on Florence Joyner and Wilma Rudolph, both of which are very inspirational people.
In the Spring Term in Year 1 we are focusing on place value, addition and subtraction. We will look at different ways to represent numbers and will be learning to use different strategies to support our addition and subtraction.
Our daily basic skills lessons are focused on quick recall of number facts including number bonds to 10, halving and doubling numbers and counting in multiples of two, five and ten.
This term we will be looking at Materials.
P.E. and swimming
P.E.kits are required to be in school every day. Kits consist of black shorts, white t-shirts (with or without the school logo) and trainers. For outdoors, in the winter, plain black or grey jogging trousers and fleece top.
We are very fortunate to have access to weekly swimming for Year 1 at Trinity, and we feel that it is very important that children take advantage of this resource. It is very important, therefore, that the children remember to bring their swimming kits to every session. If, for any reason, your child is unable to take part in P.E. or swimming, a signed letter must be provided.
Key information for the term -
Each class will be swimming for a whole half term to allow for longer swimming sessions. Each class will split into 2 groups and swim every week for one half term during PPA sessions. 1M will be swimming on a Wednesday morning until the end of term. All children must have an appropriate swimming kit and swimming hat.
P.E. will be every Thursday afternoon, outdoor with your child's class teacher and every Wednesday morning, indoor with Mr Moore.
Your child will be given a set of common tricky words (star words) to learn to read/write and these will be checked weekly. These help support reading and writing therefore it is vital that your child practices so that they are able to sight read and then spell these words.
