Spellings are one of the many new things which will be introduced in Year 1. The children will be set weekly spellings on Teams. The spelling test will usually take place on a Monday morning. Please do your best to practise them as often as possible and always use those sessions to also practice correct letter formation. (Examples of how to write the pre-cursive letters are available on Teams along with a Year 1 common exception word list, your child needs to be able to both read and spell these words).
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 practise 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. (Number formation chart available on Show My Homework)
If you need to speak to the class teacher about any aspect of your child’s schooling, please do not hesitate to contact the office to arrange a telephone appointment.
