Welcome to Year 1!
Summer Term 2017
Class Teacher - Ms Cotter
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Della Corte & Mrs Blair
Welcome to the start of a brand new term.
This term we have got some more exciting things to look at, learn about and experience.
We will be continuing the Read, Write Inc. phonic programme that incorporates reading and writing skills.
This will begin at the start of each day so it is important that your child is on time.
Book bags - Reading practice takes place daily so please ensure that your child has their book bag in school for their allocated day.
Encourage your child to sound out unfamiliar words when they are reading with you every day. Can they read signs on
the street, labels on packaging at home and use their sounds when writing? You could visit the website
www.phonicsplay.co.uk and play some phonics games with your child at home.
You could also go to Oxford Owl Top Tips website.
Here, you will get ideas to help your child :
continue to build up a range of reading skills,
continue to gain confidence with their reading,
continue to develop reading with fluency and with expression and…
reading for enjoyment.
PE is on Thursdays.
A full P.E. kit is required including black pumps. Please ensure that your child has their pumps in school for outside P.E this term.
Please ensure your child's name is on all clothing.
Snack : Fresh fruit is available daily.
However, children can bring in their own snack [small] for morning break and a water bottle to drink throughout the day.
[please don't provide fizzy drinks or cartons]
