Welcome to Year 1.
Our topics this term are –
- Aliens and Us
- Baker…Fire, Fire!
- Erol the Elf
This half term our English focus is based on the story ‘Aliens Love Underpants’ and have been creating and describing alien characters. We will also be helping the aliens by making them their very own underpants and we will hope to see as many parents as possible on the afternoon of Wednesday 26th September to help make the pants Then we will be helping the aliens to make their own pants by writing simple instructions for them to follow.

We also have rainbow reader awards, each day that your child reads at home this will be counted towards their rainbow reading. After 10 reads they move onto the first section of the rainbow and move along until they reach the star at the top. Then they move back down the rainbow towards the pot of gold – remember that when you go down the rainbow you need to have read 20 times for each colour.
The children will bring home spellings from their Read, Write, Inc. group to learn every Monday ready for a test the following Monday.
Later in the term, they will also get maths facts homework every Friday, ready for a test the following Friday. Please support your child in learning these.
We will be starting up a Lending Library where the children can borrow a picture story book to share at home with you. They will be able to choose a new book on Fridays, so please make sure they have their borrowed book with them each Friday. We hope to have our first library session on Friday 14th September.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to come and see us in class.
Miss Wellum and Miss Amos.
