Year 1 update – 3rd February

Year 1’s homework for this week is as follows:

Spellings

This week’s spellings are as follows:

different, school, cheese, noise, praise

These spellings will be tested on Monday 7th February. They are also available to practise on our new spelling programme – School Jotter: School Jotter – Dashboard (schooljotter2.com)

Please ensure that your child’s spelling book is sent in every week to complete the test.

The following week’s spellings are as follows:

friend, through, fruit, juice, bruise

These spellings will be tested on Monday 14th February.

Reading

Please ensure that your child is reading regularly and that a comment is recorded in their reading records. This is extremely important as it enables us to determine which children are definitely reading at home. Thank you.

Computing

We would like the children to complete a piece of writing on Microsoft Word about their visit to Aston Hall. This piece of writing should include a few (no more than five) sentences about their trip. Please could the children include some text that is in both italics and in bold. The children should also underline some of their writing. This homework should be printed and returned to school by Monday 14th February. If you do not have access to a printer then please email your child’s work to the class email address (y1js@littlesu.bham.sch.uk or y1nj@littlesu.bham.sch.uk)

PE days

Please note that the children will be participating in a PE lesson on both Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in school on these days.

Thank you and best wishes,

Mr Storer and Mrs Johnston
