Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome back! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas half term. As always communication is vital: I will keep you up to date via class dojo with regards to events and your child’s learning. Please feel free to message me if you have any questions and I will respond as soon as possible.  

Our topic is ‘Fairies and Frogs.’ We will be doing lots of drama within this topic, looking at and acting out different tradition tales. We will focus on different characters and how we feel about them, how they are portrayed and whether or not their actions could be seen differently.

A key objective in Year 1 is that letters are formed correctly and are the correct size. I will send home a handwriting sheet for children to practice. This is optional but handwriting is a major part of the new curriculum. In Year two children cannot get above age related expectations without joining their handwriting. This is something we feel we can work on earlier to help their progress and achievements in the future.

PE is on a Tuesday and Friday. The weather is cold so please make sure children have suitable clothing and footwear.  Also remove earrings.

Nail varnish needs to be removed for school.

Reading books and records need to be in school every day.

  • Homework book for topic, maths English, phonics and handwriting + My Maths
  • Beat that maths
  • Spellings
  • Reading – please try to encourage children to re-read their books to become more fluent. They shouldn’t be continuously segmenting the same words

7th & 8th February – Parent Evening

12th February – Valentine Disco

13th February – E safety afternoon for parents

16th February – Half term

As always, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me via class dojo or on my drop in sessions (Thursday 3:30-3:45). Kind Regards

Miss France
