Class SEH

Miss Hansford, Year 1

Welcome to class SEH

PE will be on Mondays and Tuesdays although we do some physical activity every day so PE kit needs to be in school at all times. 
During the winter we ask that all children have appropriate outdoor kit so we can get out in the colder weather. Please keep PE kits in school at all times and regularly check them to ensure kit (including daps or trainers) fits properly when it is sent home at the end of each term. Please also ensure EVERYTHING IS NAMED to minimise lost property. 

Swimming will be on Thursdays 9- 10:30am during terms 1, 5 and 6. All children need a swimming costume or trunks, towel and hat for this. Please don't forget to name all kit. Swimming lessons cannot run wuthout parental help so please do sign up on the rota on the classroom door if you are able to help with a session. All helpers need to have  DBS check so please see the office for a form and do not sign up until this has come through.

Homework

Please could you support your child with their homework.

  • Spellings will be tested and given out on FRIDAYS. The children have Look, Cover, Write, Check sheets and we ask that they practise their spellings at least three times in a week. We will be testing the common exception words three times a year. These are kept in the childrens spelling books and are colour coded orange, green and yellow for each long term.
  • Reading daily with your child is very important. We would suggest that your child reads for a minimum of five times a week for around ten minutes each session- little and often is usually best! Please comment in, and sign your child’s reading record every time they read to you.
  • Maths homework will start in October and will cover key objectives for each term. These are to practise at home and will not be tested in school. Also, if you wish to support your children at home in maths, we would suggest encouraging them to practise counting in steps of one, two, five and ten, recalling pairs of numbers that add up to 10 and, if appropriate, 20. We also recommend undertaking practical tasks such as board games where the children must count on and back, creating art work using different shapes, weighing ingredients for cooking, paying for items in shops and telling the time.

Topics

This term Years 1 & 2 will be learning a range of skills through our topics 'Travelling Through Time' and 'The Rocking Fifties and The Swinging Sixties'. Click here and here for this term's Knowledge Organisers to share key facts with your child.

To help your child at home, the following suggestions are given:

  • Read regularly with your child and discuss their reading.
  • We ask that children should be reading every day and marking this in their reading record.
  • Research shows that reading both to an adult, and at home can help the development of listening skills, spelling, reading comprehension and develop vocabulary.
  • Support your child with their homework – homework timetables were given out in the class letter.
  • Help your child to practise their times tables – TT Rockstars website - all children have their own user name and passwords.
  • Encourage your child to play internet based revision games. 
  • Help your child to learn their weekly spellings.

More information can be found on this presentation, given out on our SATS information evening in January.
