Welcome to Key Stage 1!
This half term's topic for Venus, Earth and Mars classes is called 'Green Fingers' and is all about plants and growing!
Our focus book is 'Jack and the Beanstalk. In Literacy we will be writing instructions and describing characters. We will also be doing some non-fiction writing through Science. In Maths we will be learning about measures (length, capacity, weight and time).
Here is some information about the adults working in KS1 this year:
(TAs support learning across all three KS1 classes) Please note - some changes have been made since last half term.
Classes take turns to visit the library on Thursday afternoons at 1:45, returning to school by 2:45.
We always appreciate parent help, so if you would like to accompany your child's class, please arrange with the class teacher beforehand.
Inspire Mornings for Parents
These will take place in the Top Hall each term, and will begin at 9:10am.
This half term's Inspire Morning was about Reading. It took place on Tuesday 28th February.
Some feedback from parents:
"It was great to hear and see how I can help my children."
"There was clear and straight-forward information given."
"It was great to find out exactly what they have to learn in Year 1 and 2."
"It was good that we had time to talk to teachers. It was useful to see materials used in class and to work with our children."
You will find the Parents' Handout below, along with the power point slides used at the beginning of the workshop.
Home Learning projects and writing tasks for Spring 2 were sent home on Thursday 9th February in our beautifully decorated topic bags! However, if you have misplaced your copy you can download from here, or ask your child's teacher. Please ensure that your child hands in their Home Learning to their class teacher by Friday 24th March (It can be handed in any time from 20/3/17 until that date).
Mathletics homework is set each Friday and is monitored by the teacher. Please ensure your child completes these tasks. The website you will find them on is www.mathletics.co.uk
If your child has lost their log-in details, please ask your child's class teacher for another copy as soon as possible.
