Welcome Summer 1!
Welcome back, and I hope you have all had a lovely Easter break!
This week we will be starting our new topic Splendid Skies and in this topic we will be taking a deeper look into seasonal changes and exploring weather around the world. We have been very lucky recently to enjoy the lovely sunshine and hopefully this will stick around for a little longer.
There is still time for you to complete some home learning activities for this topic and I have attached a few ideas (along with some interesting facts!) at the bottom of the blog.
I have attached the topic cover letter where you will find more details about this topic and our weekly spellings for the half-term. We will continue with our spelling quiz on a Friday and will have a weekly spelling session on a Wednesday.
Please continue reading with your child at least 3 times a week and record this in their home-school diaries. We are now working towards our gold reading awards so make sure you mark these off in the back of your diaries too. I have been over the moon with your efforts on Doodle Maths over the Easter holidays, and I am pleased to tell you that we have been the top doodlers in the whole school for three weeks! Keep up the amazing work.
Towards the end of June, all Year 1 children across the country will be taking part in a phonics screener. Please keep an eye out for more information on this in the upcoming weeks.
As always, if you have any questions give me a shout, and I'll help where I can.
Take Care, Miss Sturman
