Year 1 Parents welcome

W/C 15.9.19

This week’s spellings are high, light, snow and slow plus 2 more unseen words using the ‘igh’ and ‘ow’ sounds. As Mrs Williams is doing the spelling on Monday it would be really useful if grey homework books could be in school every Monday. Red reading diaries should be in school every Monday, Wednesday and Friday so that books can be changed if needed.

This week we have been exploring our senses in science. Our maths focus has been counting  backwards and working out 1 more and 1 less than a given number.

Remember to sign up for parents’ meetings by Monday if you would like an appointment next Wednesday.


W/C 8.9.19

Each week your child will be given, by Mrs Williams, 4 spellings linked to this week’s sounds. You are also asked to choose 2 more with that sound to learn. If the spellings are easy for your child these 2 new words can be as difficult as you can find, so long as they contain this week’s sound. Spellings will be checked with Mrs Williams on a Monday.

Reading should happen at least 3 times a week. Please record in the red reading diary the name of the book, the date and how your child got on. We will be trying to change books every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Reading diaries will be checked each Friday morning and your child will get a sticker if they have read at least 3 times.

Spellings can be practised in the grey homework diary which needs to be brought into school on Tuesday. You can also use this book to write the meaning of 2 new words your child has learnt from their reading book (as detailed in the school newsletter).
