SPELLINGS Spellings will be given out on a Monday and tested on a Friday. These spellings will mostly link to their phonics being taught with a few tricky words as well. LITERACY AND NUMERACY HOMEWORK Each week the children will be given maths and literacy home work to consolidate the work we have been doing in class that week. READING The children need to read daily at home and a note of this kept in the reading record book so that the progression in reading outside of school can be seen. (Certificates given out for reading each Friday.) Guided reading sessions will take place 5 times a week in addition to free classroom reading.
We are very grateful for parent volunteers for reading, cooking and to assist on trips - please can you give your names to the class representative or talk to me.
Year 1 cooking takes place on a Monday afternoon and can start at 1:45. Parents who are free to sign up please contact class representatives. Once this is up and running we will create a rota to ensure all children get equal opportunities to experience cooking.
