Dragonflies

 

            Welcome to Dragonfly Class.

Hello and welcome to the Dragonfly class. What an amazing first term we have had!

 

Helping the children with their learning this year, are Mrs Hill (Class Teacher) and Mrs Cavanagh (Teaching Assistant).  We are also very lucky to have Mrs Champion (Teaching Assistant) helping us on a Wednesday morning.  On Monday afternoons, we will have the Go Active Team and Plymouth Music Service working with our class.

 

P.E

P.E is also taught on a Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their coloured PE top, black bottoms, hair tied back and jewellery removed so that they can take part safely.

 

 

 

 

Term 2 

This term, we will continue our topic  'Here, There and Everywhere.'  We will continue to learn about important people and make links to famous explorers.  In storytelling sessions, we are learning the tale of 'The Magic Porridge Pot.'  

 

Look out for photographs of our learning coming soon.  Please ensure that all permission slips have been returned to the school office so that we can share our learning with you.   

 

 

 

 

 

 

                           Home Readers.

 

The children will bring home their home reading books every day. Please encourage your child to read to you for five or ten minutes every night. Regular reading can make a tremendous difference to their confidence and attainment in class.

 

Spellings

 

The children will bring home spellings to learn each week. The spellings are linked to our phonics work and Year 1 Common Exception Words set by the National Curriculum. Spellings will go home on a Friday and the spelling test will take place on a Thursday afternoon.  Please ensure you practise daily and if you want to make it more exciting, why not try practising spellings in a variety ways. Here are some examples;

 

Chalks on the garden path.

Water and paint brushes.

Chant the letters/sounds in the words.

Write the words in the sand/mud.

Magnetic letters on the fridge.

​           frown Our Star of the week is...frown

                                Olly

Olly has had a great start to Year 1. He has grown in confidence and is working much more independently now. You are producing great work in Maths Olly. Well done!

Homework

 

This term, your child will bring home some 'Fantastic Facts' homework. This will be based on improving the children's fluency in Maths when answering arithmetic questions. Your child will bring home the same set of calculations each week and the idea is that they get quicker each week.  With this in mind, we ask that you time your child and record the time taken each week.  Homework will go out on a Tuesday and come back the following Monday please.
