Our PE lessons will be on a Wednesday afternoon with an Everton Partnership sports coach.
Your child is to come into school wearing their PE kit on this day.
Our class theme this half term is ‘Penguins, Giraffes and Mice.’ Click on the link to find out more.
Children are expected to read at home as much as possible. This is essential to help develop their love of reading. Each week your child will be sent an ebook that they can read independently. They will also bring home a ‘sharing book’ that they can listen to, talk about and enjoy with an adult. Children who read at home will receive 5 dojos which they can spend at the end of each term. They will also receive a raffle ticket for our reading raffle. The reading raffle will be drawn every week with a small prize to be won. Any child you has received a raffle ticket every week will also be awarded a prize at the end of every half term.
The children will receive a list of spellings to learn each week. Any child who completes their spellings will receive 5 dojos.
By the end of Year 1 Children are expected to be able to count forwards and backwards to 100 from any number and be able to say one more or less than a number. Please practise this at home using the 100 square provided.
