Parent Letter


Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope you and your family had a lovely Easter half term! We are now heading into our final term of year 1 and will continue to be working towards our end of year goals.

In English we will reading ‘bats’ by Megan Cullis and writing our own non- chronological report about another animal. This links nicely with our science unit, which is all about animals and their different features.  In History this term, the children will be learning about The Great Fire of London which I know lots of them are really looking forward to! In maths we will start the term with counting in groups of 2, 5 and 10. More information about what your child will be learning can be found in the summer curriculum overview document.

This term P.E. will continue to be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Children will still be required to attend school in PE Kit on these days. Please ensure that your child has appropriate P.E. kit and that, for health and safety reasons, earrings are removed for P.E and that anyone with hair longer than shoulder length has their hair tied back.

Children will continue with Forest School on Wednesdays, so please ensure that they have wellies or a change of shoes and long sleeves and trousers / leggings with them (forest school clothes could be left at school for the half term if desired).

Please ensure children bring a named bottle of water to drink during the day and that all uniform is named.

Children will once again be sent home with their home learning grid containing an optional project. In addition, children will be expected to read using the Rhino reader guidance you received before half term. To support your child in their Maths, they have access to Numbots which they should play for at least 30 minutes a week. There are also learning resources for a variety of subjects on Starz.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me via the school office. I look forward to seeing what we can achieve and learn together this term.


Kind regards,

Miss Jessica Ansell
