Sparrows - Year 1 2018-2019
Autumn Term 2018 - A Journey to The Past
Welcome to Sparrows Class Page! I hope you have all had a fantastic summer break and are ready for an exciting term in Year 1.
Our history centred topic for this half term is The Great Fire of London. However, we will start the term by looking at 'twisted' fairy tales in English as part of a whole school writing project. Look out for the results of this in our entrance hall as the term progresses. Sparrows will be looking closely at the fantastic story ‘Goldilocks and Just the One Bear’ written by Leigh Hodgkinson. The children will be retelling and writing their own version of this narrative as well as writing a set of instructions. In Science the children will be looking at different materials, which will link with our topic of The Great Fire of London, as we can compare the materials used to build houses now and in the past.
To keep up to date with what is happening in class make sure you regularly check our school Twitter feed.
Please read as often as possible at home as this will really support your child's learning and progress within school. The children will also be able to access ‘Bug Club’ where they can read a range of exciting books.
Phonics is taught every day in Year 1 and supports the children’s reading development. I have linked a few useful websites below that include fun phonics games to play with your child at home.
I look forward to seeing you at the upcoming meet the teacher evening on the 11th September. During this evening useful information such as homework, use of reading diaries, curriculum and school routines will be explained. Should you have any other queries please do not hesitate to email me or speak to me in person at the end of the school day.
Here's to a fantastic Year at Cuddington Primary School!
