Spellings are one of the many new things which will be introduced in Year 1. The children will bring weekly spelling home on a sheet. Please do your best to practice them as often as possible and always use those sessions to also practice correct letter formation. The spelling test will usually take place on a Friday morning.
Please continue to look at books and read with your child on a daily basis to improve his/her reading skills. We are aiming to change reading books every day, so please sign the reading record when you have read the book. There will be a list of words for every new Oxford Reading Tree Stage and it will help your child to practice those words in order to recognize them quickly. If there are any questions about reading please do not hesitate to ask.
Over the year we will be working with numbers to 10, 20 and progress up to 100. This term we will practice basic counting, addition and subtraction skills and start recording number sentences. We will also focus on forming digits correctly.
If you need to speak to the class teacher about any aspect of your child’s schooling, please do not hesitate to make an appointment after school.
