Year 1 update – 17th December

Dear Parents,

Please note there will be NO spellings to learn over the Christmas holiday. The children have worked exceptionally hard this half term and they deserve a restful break.

After half term, the spellings will be as follows:

Group 1 – globe, smoke, home, June, flute

Group 2 – envelope, smoke, explode, salute, flute

These spellings will be tested on Monday 11th January.

Reading – Please continue to read with your child at home and update their reading record when this has been completed.

Phonics – If you wish to support your child with their learning then please practise reading the graphemes on the Phase 2, Phase 3 and Phase 5 handout.

Maths – If you wish to support your child with their learning then please encourage them to practise their fact fluency at home (number bonds to 10, number bonds to 20, doubles of numbers up to 10 and halves of numbers up to 20). Hit the Button is a very useful and enjoyable resource for the children. This can be found by typing in ‘Hit the Button’ on Google.

Thank you for your support. We hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Best wishes,

Mr Storer and Mrs Johnston
