Year 1 Newsletter 24th March

24 March 2016Year 1

Dear Parents,

We have had a fantastic term, with the children excited and motivated to learn. Thank you for all your support.

Our Topic Next Half Term – Our topic focus next half term will be plants, living and growing, seasons and the weather. We hope to spend lots of time outdoors exploring our natural surroundings.

Literacy – During our first week back we will be focussing on formal letter writing. We will find out what we need to include in a formal letter and the children will write one.

Maths – We will be learning more about place value and the importance of different numerals and their order in a number. We will talk about tens and ones, with some discussion about hundreds too!

At home – A few ideas for you to try at home during the holidays:

  • Practise reading and writing days of the week.
  • Find some dot-to-dot pictures or books to complete (ideally to 100 or beyond!). This is a really fun way to practise learning numbers.

Please remember that we will be swimming on our first day back after the holidays.

We hope you enjoy the Easter break.

Mrs Bennett and Mrs Burkill
