Your teachers are: Mrs Armstrong and Mrs Mason.
Reading books - These need returning each day. For year 1 pupils these will be changed weekly after they have read to an adult. Once your child has successfully read all of the phonics books up to phase 5 they will then be ready to join the Accelerated reader Programme. These pupils can change their books if they score more than 60% on an Accelerated Reading Quiz. Please ask your child to inform the teacher when they have changed their book.
Water Bottles - please can children bring in their water bottles freshly refilled each day?
PE- Ideally, PE kits are to be kept in school until the end of each half term. PE day will be Monday for this half term.
Homework- We have introduced a new homework system this year. Please see your child's yellow homework book for more details. Homework will be collected and marked at the end of each half term. Please see below for a copy of this term's homework.
Spellings - Each week your child will bring home 6 spellings. 5 will be their phonics/spelling pattern words and 1 will be a CEW (Common Exception Word - Words that children will need to be able to read and spell by the end of the year).
We plan and deliver an exciting integrated curriculum.
Our Curriculum is a structured framework of half termly themed Learning Units for each primary school year group. It covers Foundation subjects, RE and Science and is fully mapped to cover the National Curriculum requirements.
This approach allows teachers to be creative whilst providing them with the support and framework that is needed for a consistently delivered and planned whole-school curriculum. This ensures that the National Curriculum is being covered and that our learners and teachers go home every day excited and buzzing about their day.
This term we will be continuing with our 'London's Burning' topic where we will learn about the Great Fire of London in 1666. We will learn about when and where the fire started, who was involved and how the fire was finally put out. In art we will be creating our own Fire of London pictures. After half term we will focus on London the capital city of England and learn about London's famous landmarks.
Please see the knowledge organisers below for more detailed information on our topic.
