Don’t forget to complete the reading challenge this week. Well done to the children who completed the Reading Challenge – 63% of 1C (16 children) and 83% of 1G (20 children).  Great work – keep reading! We still want a KS1 class to top the leader board! We can do it.










English Curriculum for the Autumn Term. As
Readers we will be reading and discussing a variety of fiction and non-fiction
texts about ‘Our Bodies and Ourselves’.
After half term, we will be focussing on ‘Houses, Homes and other
Buildings in our Locality’. In order to
improve our reading and writing skills, we will continue to learn to read and
write our sounds. As Writers, we will be
writing labels, lists and captions and making books about ourselves. We will look at the structure of non-fiction
books and make simple information books with headings. We will continue to practise our handwriting,
using our cursive font, and try to form all our letters correctly, with a
correct pencil grip. Your child will
bring home a Library Book and Reading Book weekly. Your help and support with reading is
invaluable. The English curriculum SFA
(Success for All) will continue in order to develop the children’s reading and
comprehension skills, basic grammar and spelling. It celebrates co-operative
learning. Weekly spellings will be sent
home and then be tested in our weekly spelling challenges. Don't forget to practice your word pouches regularly! Also don’t forget to complete the weekly
Reading Challenge - 5 minutes reading, 5 times a week!

Maths Curriculum for the Autumn Term. As
Mathematicians we will follow the Inspire Maths Scheme to practise recognising,
counting and ordering numbers up to 20 and beyond. Number formation will be practised and reinforced. We will find one more or one less of a given
number and investigate simple number problems.
Addition and subtraction will be practised. We will begin to learn the different ways of
making 10 and doubles of numbers up to 5.
We will learn the names and properties of 2d and 3d shapes and measure
different lengths. We will continue to
take part in ‘Beat That’ and CLIC challenges every week to consolidate our
Learn Its knowledge. Your child will bring these home so that you can see their
scores! You may like to help them practise their facts too. Don't forget to practice your number pouches regularly!

Spelling challenges will be sent home weekly. You might like to practice these words with your child so that they are confident during their spelling challenge. We will also practice these words regularly in school too. IT IS NOT ESSENTIAL THAT THEY GET THEM ALL CORRECT ALL THE TIME. IT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAT YOUR CHILD CAN APPLY THESE SPELLING RULES TO THEIR WRITING ALL THE TIME. We need to learn to spell all the Year 1 Common Exception Words (CEWs) by the end of the summer term. These words will be displayed in our classrooms and removed once we have all learnt them all by heart. Termly updates will be sent home so you can see how your child is progressing.
