— Year One – Spring


Welcome back to the Spring Term! I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas and a very happy new year. Thank you so much for your lovely Christmas gifts and cards :)

Spring Topic

We have 2 short terms this Spring so I’m looking forward to cramming in as much fun learning is as possible! Our topic for this term is ‘Around the World in 54 days!’ Each week we will be aiming to focus on a different country/continent, starting with Africa.

If you have any books that are topic related, we would love to borrow them for the term. Please make sure they are clearly labelled with your child’s name. We would be extremely grateful for any books and will take good care of them J Thank you

Phonics homework and reading

Phonics homework will continue to be set every Tuesday (books collected in on Monday). Support your child in completing their phonics homework weekly – it is important for the children to consolidate their learning in preparation for the next year of their learning and for the Year 1’s, their phonics screening check this June. More information will be sent home before Easter, regarding the Phonics screening check.

Continue to read as often as you can with your child; every day would be brilliant but a minimum of 3 times per week.
