Welcome to Year 1
Mrs Brown's Class
This term our topic is:
Under the Sea
We will be learning about the different types of animals and plants that live in the sea, as well as the human and physical features of the seaside. We will also learn about beaches, past and present. There will also be an opportunity to learn about some under the sea stories.
Last term we enjoyed learning about:
Were we learned about some of the stories written by Julia Donaldson. These included: The Smartest Giant in Town; Monkey Puzzle; A Squash and a Squeeze; The Gruffalo and Room on a Broom.
Children will read in school every day, this will be 1:1 with an adult, group reading or quiet reading in class. Children may change their books in school once they have read at home and in school to an adult and shown good understanding of their book.
Children are not required to read a whole book each day (they can if they want to!) a few pages with some discussion is enough to support and enhance their learning.
Once your child has read at home, please record this in their reading record with the date, who your child has read with and add a short comment if you wish to.
PE kit and daps
Please ensure that your child has a school PE kit in school throughout each term. This consists of a white t.shirt, blue/black shorts (tracksuit bottoms in the Winter) and trainers/daps.
Children will also need a change of daps for indoor wear and suitable school shoes for play-times. Many thanks
Please don’t hesitate to come and speak to me if you have any questions regarding any aspect of
your child’s learning in school.
