Welcome to 1CC!
I cannot believe we are in Summer 2! I hope you all had a fantastic break and are refreshed and ready for lots of learning and fun filled activities this half term! Where has this year gone? I cannot believe this is the last half term before we break up for our summer holidays!
What are we learning about?
Our topic this half term is ‘Why are humans not like tigers?’ and we will be reading the books ‘The tiger who came for tea’ and ‘Bog Baby’. We will be writing about our favourite animals, facts on animals, describing animals, writing/sending out invitations and recounting a trip. So lots of fun ahead! Watch out for those wild and strange animals – they may visit us!
In Science we will be identifying and naming different animals, learning what the words carnivore, herbivore and omnivore mean and also naming and labelling the parts of our own bodies.
Art and Design Technology
In Art and DT we will be drawing zoo animals, making animal masks and 3D animals out of plasticine/clay. So get your thinking caps on – what does your Bog Baby look like?
PE days are Thursday and Friday and we ask for your child to wear the correct PE Kit (white T-shirt, blue shorts and black pumps) and could you please label it clearly. We will send PE Kits home each half term so they can be washed and returned after the holidays for the next half term.
Reading book and Reading record
Please can I remind you that your child's reading book needs to be in school every day, so if we have the opportunity, we can listen to your child read throughout the week. Being able to read is a very important skill and we would appreciate it if you could listen to your child read at home. Thank you.
Your child has been given a Bug Club username and password in school. Having access to Bug Club provides children with the wonderful opportunity to read electronic books that are matched to their current reading level in school. This is an exciting and rewarding way in which you can encourage your child to read additionally at home...the children love it and it has been a huge hit within the classroom!
Homework is given out Fridays and this half term it will be a list of spellings and an additional piece for your child to practice at home over the week. They will be tested Friday mornings on their spellings and then a new set of spellings will be given out and stuck in their homework books for the next week. Please make your child hands their homework in every Wednesday.
Please feel free to get in touch at any time. Mrs Jackson is available to speak to you on the door in the mornings and I am available at the end of the school day.
Miss Conner and Mrs Jackson J
