Class 1 2017 - 2018

Miss Sykes

Welcome to Class 1

I hope you all had a lovely holiday and are refreshed and ready for the Spring term! 

This half term our Literacy topic will be ‘Beegu’. We will be exploring the story of Beegu in order to produce a range of literacy based work, such as: reports, instructions and narratives. In Maths, we will begin to look at doubling, grouping and fractions. We will also start to look at telling the time, so please encourage your children to practise this at home with you too.

Our new Science topic is ‘Winter and Spring’ and the children will be observing how the cold, frosty weather is replaced with new life, in regards to both plants and animals. This half term we will be swapping back to Geography and our topic is ‘Where we live’. The children will have an opportunity to explore the local community and develop their knowledge and understanding of Manchester.

Please see the curriculum overview below for more information.

Phonics
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.

P.E.
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.
