Miss Barrow

Mrs Holden

 

 

We have two wonderful Year 1 classes and our teachers are Mrs Holden and Miss Barrow.  

We have the superb Mrs Simpson and the amazing Mrs Caliskan helping us in the classroom too!

Our topic this term is:

Great Explorers

For this topic we will reading "The Curious Case of the Missing Mammoth" by Ellie Hattie Image result for the curious case of the missing mammoth.  

We will be learning about explorers from the past - Ibn Battuta, Christopher Columbus, Robert Falcon Scott and Neil Armstrong.

 

For more information on what we will get up to during Spring 2, please have a look at our topic web.

 

Reading – Your child’s homework will be their reading.  It is important homework that children read regularly at home – please comment/sign the Reading Diary every night.  If your child has read at home and their book has been signed then they will receive a raffle ticket the following day.  At the end of the week a raffle is done and the winner will receive a prize.  The more your child reads during the week the better chance they have of winning!  The children are often encouraged to change their book. We will often send the same book home again: reading is not just about reading the words; we want to encourage children to have a really good understanding of what they read and to do this, it is important that they discuss the book and answer questions about it.

Some websites are listed below which may be useful for you to use with your child to reinforce the learning they are doing in school.   We are looking forward to a fun, action packed term and we are sure the children are too!
