Our Class Saint
St. Teresa of Calcutta
Year one & two chose St. Teresa of Calcutta because of the difference she made to people through prayer, love, kindness and her unique qualities given to her by God.
We think about her kindness and charity and ask God to help us to follow her example in our own lives.
Our topic this half term is "Land Ahoy"
Please see our topic fact sheet for all the details on what we will be covering.
Our Class Texts
This half term we will be sharing..................
"Where The Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak
Daily Maths - This will take a matter of minutes to complete each night and will give the opportunity for basic skills to be practised. Children will be given 4 questions per day (appropriate to their year group) and this is to be completed in the maths homework book provided. Please make sure your child brings this book into school each day as they will be marked as class in the morning.
This year we have made changes to the Daily English homework to help focus extending the children`s vocabulary. Please note that this is revised from information provided at the induction sessions.
Daily English - Year 1 – On Monday your child will be given 5 new words to talk about over the week. They need to know what the words means and maybe be able to use the word in a spoken sentence.
Daily English - Year 2 – On Monday your child will be given a set of 5 new words to find the meaning of (appropriate to their year group). They must then use each word in a sentence to demonstrate their understanding. As previously we will go through one word and sentence per day; the children could choose to do all 5 on the first night should they wish.
Please ensure that reading diaries are sent into school every day. We encourage our children to read at home with an adult at least three times a week, please can we ask that this is recorded in your child’s diary.
Children will receive new spellings on a Monday and will be tested on these the following Friday.
Thank you for your consistent support with your child’s learning journey!
