We all know it is very important that the children are reading at home as much as possible. The children are rewarded as 'Reading Champions' if they read at home at least 3 times each week.  In addition to this the children will also receive a pick 'n' mix of activities linked to our topic which they can choose from over the term. 

The home learning will be available through their TEAMs account.  Home learning can continue to be completed in their home learning books, but there will be a home learning assignment on TEAMs which you can upload photos or other learning to if not working into their books.

Each Friday we will also post a message on TEAMs about the week's learning. This will have information about the area of maths we have covered, as well as the handwriting letter and key word spellings for the week. If you're able to continuing practising at home, it will really help reinforce these basic skills for your child.



We are continuing to develop an outside area for the children to use for their learning in Year 1. If you would like to, please send into school some old trainers or wellies which the children can wear when outside. These will need to be in a named carrier bag so they can be left on the child's peg.

If you have any questions about our learning this term (or anything else) please come and see us.
