Orange Class 2018 - 2019

Dear Parents,

I can’t believe that we are entering the children’s final term in Year 1. I look back to September and am delighted in the changes in our little people. In this final term we will see them becoming more independent, embedding a love for learning and challenging themselves to be the best they can be and most importantly having lots of fun!

This term we are very excited because the children have chosen our topic… ‘super heroes!’ They have thought of lots of exciting ideas for the topic: like super hero comic strips; super food; super oceans; super science and super Olympics (please see our topic web for more information).

Reading  - We will read with your child as much as we can during the week, we had some fabulous helpers last term. If you are available to hear readers, or know of any Grandparents that have a spare hour, we would be extremely grateful for any extra support. The children have a tremendous love of reading, please keep up the good work at home. It’s a really special moment when children pick up a book for pleasure that they can read and enjoy.

Spellings – will continue like last half term. Some spellings may be the same but practice makes perfect. Please remember spelling books on a Friday. 

Homework and Phonics – The phonics screening test is in June. In class we will be working on reading real and non-sense words. Some homework this term is phonics based and weekly homework will be stuck into books on Monday. 

PE – PE will be on a Wednesday or a Friday afternoon. 

There will be no weekly outdoor learning, however, please bring wellies and forest schools bags in anyway as some of our lessons will be outside. 

If you have any questions or queries please come in and see us. We are always around before the start of the school day or after school. 

Finally, ‘Inside us all is a super hero. The cape and the mask are optional, but a kind heart and the courage to pursue your dreams is essential.’ #orangeclasssavetheworld

Kind Regards
