Hello and welcome to the Chestnut class page!
This term our topic is Mary, Mary how does your garden grow?
In maths this term we are going to be adding and subtracting one digit and two digit numbers to 20, including zero. We are going to use number lines to support our learning. If you could continue to practise number bonds to 10 and 20 at home then that will support your child in class. If you are practising maths at home please make sure your child is forming numbers correctly.
I will continue to send spellings home every Friday so please help your children learn them! These are a mix of key words that children should know by the end of Year One and some words using their phonics. I will be checking them the following Friday. Towards the end of last term many of the children were doing really well with these spellings so please continue to practise!
Please make sure you read with your children every day. By the end of Year One children should be reading at a level 18 (Turquoise), to reach this children need to be reading regularly at home. Unfortunately there isn’t enough time in the day to read with every child every day during school time, so it is really important that you read with them at home! Being a strong reader supports them in all of their subjects and gives a great foundation for their learning!
If you feel you are able to spare an hour a week and would like to support some of our children with their reading, then we are always looking for reading volunteers, please let me know if you are interested!
Your children will also get homework every Friday, this will alternate between literacy and maths each week, please return it by Wednesday so I can have a look before they get sent home again!
This term we are lucky to have Bristol Sport coming in to teach us Multiskills. This will happen on a MONDAY afternoon so please make sure your children have trainers in their P.E kit!
If you have any questions or concerns then I am always available at the end of the day!
