A message for Summer 2
Welcome back Year 1!
I hope you have all had a lovely break and are well rested for our last half term together - let's make it one to remember!
During this half term, we will be celebrating the Queen's Jubilee, completing our phonics screening checks, going on our class trip, transition day in year 2, competing in our sports day and much much more!!
In English we will be learning about the features of a recount text, leading up to us writing our own recount of our class trip. We will then be diving into 'Dogger' a much loved classic book, which I know the children will love! In Maths, we will be consolidating all the skills we have learnt this year making sure they are embedded ready for our journey to continue in Year 2. In Science, we're continuing to build on our sorting and classifying skills and using them to sort and classifying animals including humans.
We will be completing our Art topic, creating our own African pint and learning about the history of Cradley C of E Primary in History.
Please continue to support your children at home by reading regularly, practising the children's red words and practising their phonic sounds.
In order to help the children transition into Year 2, we have a transition day coming up where the children will get to spend the day in their new classroom. We also have lots of story times planned with the Year 2 teacher, in our current classroom and in the Year 2 classroom. We will continue to take small steps like this to help the children smoothly transition into their new year group.
As always, any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thank you, Mrs Collins x
