We are continuing to read the story Lila and the Secret of Rain as part of our Literacy lessons and learning how to answer questions during our Literacy comprehension sessions. The children's books are changed twice a week as long as they have been reading at home and their reading record book has been signed by a parent. If you are interested in helping out with reading in the classroom or would like to help change the books, please see Ms White.
The children are revising the sounds learnt in Phonics and there will be two Year 1 Parent Meetings to explain how you can support your child at home. These will both be held on Monday 1st April at 9.30am and 5.30pm. Also a reminder for those children attending the phonics booster club, it will be finishing this week Monday 25th March.
In Science we are discussing the weather as part of our topic on Splendid Skies and in PE we the children are using different apparatus as part of the gymnastics curriculum. Please remember the children need their full PE kit every week, on Wednesdays it is indoor PE (yellow top, black shorts and pumps) and on Fridays it is outdoor PE/Games with the Coach (black jogging bottoms and sweatshirt and trainers).
During this month of Lent the children will be reflecting on the importance of trying to be a good friend, son/daughter or sibling. The children have discussed what they are going to do for Lent which has included helping out at home, praying or giving something up. Some children have also chosen to put money in the Cafod boxes which will be collected in this week.
This term we are continuing to learn the Hail Mary and Hail Holy Queen which you may wish to say with your child at home
