Holy Trinity CofE Primary School (Merton)

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

YEAR 1

What Have We Achieved This Week:
 
In English we have been looking at non-fiction and finding out all about frogs! We have used the information we have found out to make our own frog fact-files. Do ask your child what they have learnt!
 
In Maths we have been thinking about place value, tens and ones. 
 
In Topic, we have been continuing  to learn about maps. In RE we have been learning all about the story of Hannukah and what Jewish people believe.
 
We would like to wish you all a very happy half-term! Please do feel free to let your children bring in anything they would like to share with their class about what they have been up to in their week off.
 
 
 
 
Homework:
 
Mathletics: due Wednesday. 2 tasks have been set.
 
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).

Queries:
Please bear in mind that the morning during drop off is not the time to speak to class teachers about any issues as we are trying to get the children in and settled. If you have a query please drop us an email during school hours. Many thanks.
 
Tissue plea!
We are desperate for some tissues please :-)
 
PE Kits:
 
Please ensure your child's NAMED PE kit is back in school this week, thank you. Please also ensure they have a pair of trousers in their kit as we are outside for some lessons and it is very chilly.
 
Please also encourage your child to be dressing and undressing independently at home.
 
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.
