Welcome to 1T!
We welcome the children back after a Holy and enjoyable Easter break. This term we will be really focusing on reading and Phonics, ready for our phonics screening checks that will begin the week commencing 12th June. We will be continuing to learn the new split digraphs and look at alternative graphemes for phonemes. (E.g a-e, ay, ai).
The first week back will be a 'topic' week, where we will be learning about significant explorers from History (Christopher Columbus & Neil Armstrong).
We are looking forward to our multi-skills trip on the 25th April.
Reminder- please ensure your child is practicing their spellings regularly and reading every day. The bookmark given at the last parents' evening, can be applied to any books the children are exposed to. Please feel free to share other texts at home, if you wish, as the daily reading book is just one element of our reading curriculum. Library books will be changed each Friday.
We would appreciate any help you could offer with walking to church and hearing children read. Please let us know if you are available.
