Welcome to Year 1!
During the Autumn term, our topic is The Wonderful World of Wheeler. All our cross-curricular work will focus on the local area and the buildings we can see around us. We are looking forward to getting out into the local community as much as we can.
We will be learning about materials in our Science lessons and this will feed into our work on The Three Little Pigs in Literacy. We are excited to explore a range of traditional tales (and their modern alternatives!) and work on developing our confidence and skill when writing.
It is important to encourage your child to read at home at least three times per week to build upon the daily phonics and reading done in school. Remember that reading any book is fantastic, not just your library book or reading book, and we would love to see these recorded in your reading records. Children who read three times per week at least will be given a regular reader stamp and have the chance to win books each half-term.
Homework will be given out weekly on a Friday to be completed and returned by the following Friday. The homework will be linked to spellings, basic skills, phonics and simple activities to help complement their learning within the classroom.
