Year One Topics Summer Term
This Half term our Topic is The moon Landing. Children will learn about Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin, as well as Katherine Johnson.
Our topic after the Whitsun break will be Chocolate. The children will be learning about how chocolate is made, where it comes from and they’ll even have a go at grinding cocoa beans into chocolate bars. We are looking forward to our trip to Cadbury World on Monday 26th June!
PHONICS SCREENING CHECK
On Monday 12th June children will take the phonics screening check which shows how well your child can use the phonics skills they’ve learned up to the end of Year 1, and to identify students who need extra phonics help.
You can help your child prepare by going over the phonics they’ve learned so far. Read new books with them where they will be introduced to new words that they’ll have to sound out.
If you’d like some support, Please come and see Mr Cooper or Mrs Catana
The pupils will receive one piece of homework each week. Your child will be given the homework on a Friday to be completed by the following Friday.
It is also important that you hear your child read on a regular basis, Ideally this would be for a minimum of 10 minutes a day. This can be any book, newspaper or magazine that they like; not necessarily their reading book. Reading books should be brought into school every day so that we can hear your child read. Please remember to return phonics books each Monday so that they can bring their new book home that week.
