    STAR OF THE WEEK – 11.10.19

    for always choosing the right thing to do. Holly is always eager to please whoever she is working with, and even asks for extra work when she has finished. She is helpful around the classroom and likes to make sure all the jobs have been done before it is time to go home. What a star!

    Well done!

    Spellings – Spellings are sent home with homework on a Friday and tested weekly on the following Wednesday. You will find your child’s most up to date spelling list in their Homework book. Can they beat last week’s score?

    Reading – Your child will change their books on the same day each week – details of this can be found on the front of their yellow reading record. Please ensure your child has their books with them on this day. Don’t forget to log in the reading record to show when you have read with your child.

    Phonics – Children take part in daily phonics sessions as part of the ‘Read Write Inc’ phonics programme. Please find below links to the speed sounds chart which outlines the letters and sounds that the children will progress through over the year. You can also find a guide to the letter formation rhymes that we use in school to support your child with correct letter formation at home.

English homework will be sent home in children’s Homework books. Maths homework will be set on MyMaths (you should have received a slip with your child’s unique login). In addition to their reading books, your child also can access Bug Club – an online reading platform.

    17/10/19 – This first half-term with Year 1 has flown by. The children have really impressed me and have been working hard, with so much enthusiasm. During the half term please make sure you: keep on reading to your children, practising those spellings, and most importantly of all, have a lovely break. I look forward to seeing you all back on Monday 28th October. Miss Freebairn.
