The children are doing really well with their writing but please help them improve by practicing handwriting and spelling at home.


How do we make our writing super in year one? We make sure we include capital letters, full stops and finger spaces!


This term there will be a strong on mass, weight, capacity and measurement. We will be doing a lot of practical activities in class to support the children’s understanding of these concepts. In maths this half term we will be revisiting numbers to 100. We will be learning number patterns with numbers to 100 and recognising how many 10s and how many 1s are in any given number. We will also be revisiting addition and subtraction to 20.

Please can you make sure you read with your child at least three times a week and write it in their reading journal to help towards their 'Red-Ted' award.

We all need to make sure we have PE kits in school every day. In this lovely sunny weather we want to be doing PE outside so make sure your kit is appropriate for this.

We are looking forward to the rest of the year and watching everybody SPARKLE!

Miss Sidebottom, Miss Owen, Mrs Fowler and Mrs Staley.
