We will still be sending home your child's reading book regularly, and it would really help them to improve if you could please hear them read.
*An important thing to be aware of this term is that all Year 1 children have to take part in the Statutory Y1 Phonics Screening Assessment. We will be doing lots of practise in the classroom and some occasional real words and alien words may come home with your child just to help them continue with this.
We are going to introduce some weekly spellings. It would really help your child with their writing, if you could help them learn the words. We will have a little weekly test, just to see how we are improving.
We will continue to be having our weekly Big Maths tests. The children have done really well with this and most of them have worked through the starter sheets and are now on the Year 1 sheets. One or two children may even get onto the Year 2 maths whilst they are still in Year 1, which is amazing!!!
