Holy Trinity CofE Primary School (Merton)

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

YEAR 1

What Have We Achieved This Week:
  
In English this week we have been started looking at a new story called "The Sweetest Song" from The Story Tree. We have acted out the story as well as writing sentences about the different characters.
 
In Maths we have have been exploring place value with the help of dienes.
 
In Topic we have been looking at Advent and made our own advent calendars.
 
 
 
 
 
Homework:
 
Mathletics: No mathletics will be set this week.
 
Please be practising number skills with your children at home: reading, writing and ordering numbers to 20, writing numbers to 20 in words, finding more and less etc.
*Your child's mathletics login will be stuck into the front of their reading record book.
 
Reading: Children should now have their reading books and records in bags. Please encourage your child to read these throughout the week, and assist them where necessary. It would be helpful for us if you could also jot a note in their reading records to let us know how they get on and any words/sounds they particular struggle with. 
Please also be practising phonics (focusing on sets 1 and 2) as well as reading the 100 High-Frequency words (documents attached below).
 
 
 
Notices: 
 
Friday 14th: Christmas jumper day:
 
Children can wear a Christmas jumper instead of their school jumpers on Friday, for a donation of £1 for our school charity.
 
Year 1 carol concert (Tuesday 18th December)
 
Children need to come to school dressed all in black and a piece of tinsel (gold or silver) to put around their heads and/or waists please. Children can remain dressed like this for the school day.
 
School day:
 
Please note that the school day begins at 8:45am and ends at 3:20pm.
Children will be marked late if they are dropped off or collected outside of these times. If the classroom doors are locked and it is after this time, please go to the office to sign your child in as the register will have been saved.
 
PE Kits:
 
Please make sure that your child has their named school uniform in school no later than Tuesday, when we will be starting PE lessons. Please also encourage your child to be dressing and undressing independently at home.
