Welcome to Class 1

I hope that you have had a relaxing and enjoyable half term break and are all ready for another great term. The spring 2 term is only five weeks long but we still have lots of hard work to do!

In Literacy we will be starting our new book 'Dogger'. Through exploring this wonderful story, the children will be given opportunities to produce some exciting pieces of writing. In Maths the children will continue to develop their core maths skills and we will be revisiting division, measure and time.

Our new Science topic is 'Plants'. The children will be planting their own bean plants and observing how they grow and change over half term. In History, the children will be learning all about some of our local heroes and how they have affected and changed Manchester for us today. 

Please see the curriculum overview below for more information.

Your child will continue to have a phonics lesson four times a week. Phonics teaches the children how to read by linking sounds (phonemes) and the symbols that represent them (grahemes, or letter groups). The phonics scheme we follow at Abbott is 'Read, Write, Inc'. If you would like to help your child with their phonics at home, you will find lots of great resources onliine. Alternatively, I am happy to provide you with some further information on how you can support their phonics skills.

Home Learning
The children will be given one Literacy/Phonics challenge and one Maths challenge every Tuesday for home learning. This work will be due the following Monday. Home learning club is available to all children every Thursday 3:15pm-4:00pm. Homework that is not brought back on time will be completed during a break time detention. Spelling will be given out every Monday and a spelling test will be done every Friday.

Reading at home
Children will be given a reading book to take home and they should read every day at home. Please send in your child's reading book and record so that we can change their reading book when they are ready for a new one.

The children will have a MCFC football lesson every Wednesday and a Salford Red Devils rugby lesson every Friday. They will also have an outdoor P.E. lesson with our school Sports Coach, Miss Ashton, every Friday morning. Please make sure they have a P.E. in school on these days.

If you have any questions about anything, please don't hesitate to speak with me.
