Faithfulness (Year 1) Class
Welcome to Faithfulness class,
My name is Ms Hodson and I am the Year 1 class teacher. Our in class support is Ms Flores and Ms Woodcock.
We are looking forward to supporting your child during this academic year, to help them evolve into an independent, passionate and imaginative learner.
In Autumn 1, we will be learning how to write a letter and instructions based on our story book The Egg Box Dragon. In Science we are looking at different materials. We will be making observations and conducting simple experiments with materials. In Maths, we will be focusing on consolidating their place value learning in Reception and building upon this learning, in order for the children to gain a deeper understanding of the individual skills learnt.
The children will begin to learn their 2x table, 5x table and 10x table, so these are learnt off-by-heart.
All pupils are expected to read, or be read to, for at least 10 minutes every night and a comment written in their reading record book, along with your signature. Please ensure their reading book and reading record are in school everyday. We will change books every Thursday.
Please support your child's reading by asking them questions about what they have read/you have read, as this will ensure their understanding of the text.
Homework is set on Fridays. The children will be set number work alongside phonics. In addition, occasional topic work to support them in their in class learning.
Each piece of homework is an opportunity for your child to share their learning with you. Please make sure their work is completed in line with the high expectations of the school.
Please return homework by the following Wednesday.
Spellings and Times Tables
Spellings will be undertaken each week and children will be expected to learn these, as they will be tested weekly.
They will have their number test every other week on Friday's.
To support your children's times table learning, attached to the front cover of their reading record is their personal login details for Numbots, a wonderful resource to help your child learn their times tables.
PE is on a Thursday Afternoon . Please ensure that your child arrives to school wearing their PE kit and that earrings are removed.
Children must wear appropriate PE kit - white top with black shorts or tracksuit bottoms with plimsolls or trainers and school jumper for each lesson. This half term your child will be looking at 'Ball Skills' which involves learning how to control a ball and different ways we can pass a ball using our hands and feet.
Jumpers and book bags
Please can you ensure that your child's name is written on their school jumper, to ensure we are able to return lost and found jumpers to the correct child. In addition your child is required to bring their book bag everyday.
We look forward to working with you and your child this term.
