Year 1 Summer Term

Dear Year 1 Parents,

After Easter, our Summer term Forest School sessions will commence on:

  • Pine Class – Wednesday 1st May
  • Oak Class – Thursday 2nd May

The children will need to have long-sleeved tops and trousers. They will also need appropriate clothing for the weather. Please check the forecast and send in raincoats and sunhats when appropriate. If you are able to help at Forest School, please let your child’s teacher know.

Although we have not sent homework home over the Easter holiday, it would be beneficial for your child if you continued to hear them read daily. If you would like to do any extra work (over the Easter holidays) then any of the following suggestions would help your child:

  • Practise handwriting with the correct letter formation (please see school website for correct letter formation)
  • Phonics – practise the attached phonics sounds and see useful links for Phonics resources
  • Writing – practise applying phonics and common exception words in sentences (remembering a capital letter and a full stop!)
  • Counting skills (counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s, counting/ordering numbers up to 100, number bonds and related subtraction facts to 20)
  • Practise spelling the days of the week
  • Practise spelling the numbers from one to twenty.

Most of all, however, have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday, and enjoy your Easter eggs!

Thank you for your continued support.

Happy Easter,

Mrs Azam & Miss Perry
