Year 1 Newsletter Summer 2, 2019



Our creative curriculum topic for next half term is ‘Up, Up and Away! Please see overleaf for our curriculum map to find out all about the exciting things we will be doing this half term.



This term our PE sessions are Tuesdays. The children should have a white T-shirt, black/navy shorts and a pair of pumps (football kits are not allowed) Please make sure that PE kits are in a bag and all items are clearly named. (Just a reminder that our school policy clearly states no jewellery, for safety reasons).


Home Reading

We want to continue to encourage all our children to enjoy and engage with books and reading and we ask you to continue to support this process. Our home reading scheme is devised to encourage your child to read independently, with fluency, to build their confidence and self-esteem. If your child has a lot of difficulty reading their book and is unable to tell you about it, please let us know. Children have the opportunity to use books from school OR home and their progress needs to be recorded in their Home Reading Record Book. The reading record will continue to be monitored in school each week. Please return these, with your child’s reading book every Tuesday and Friday.



We will be sending home Maths homework for the duration of the term; this will be an extension of the work we are doing in class. We will continue to add different games and books for the children to access for their maths and literacy online homework (Active Learn). Thank you for your continued support this year.
