Holy Trinity CofE Primary School (Merton)

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

YEAR 1

What Have We Achieved This Week:
 
This week has all been about The Seven Wonders of the World! Our seven wonder was the Taj Mahal.
 
We found out all about the Taj Mahal and India and made fact files and posters about each. We also learnt about Indian food and made our own menus. We were very lucky and had an art workshop where we made a huge Taj Mahal which you can see in our art exhibition after school. We also drew our own Taj Mahal's and painted a sunset for the background.
Homework:
Sumdog: There is a new contest this week so login and find out! 
 
Mathletics: Please complete the set tasks by Wednesday.
 
Homework: To find out at least 5 facts about the Taj Mahal. This is a useful link! 
 
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.
