Curriculum Booklet

You can download Class 1's curriculum booklet here.

You can also download the Year 1 and Year 2 Maths curriculum booklets for this term. Please note, these are a rough basis for our weekly planning that are subject to change as and when the need arises.

Class 1's English curriculum can also be downloaded here. Once again, this is a guide to aid our planning and can also change when necessary.

Homework

Homework is sent home on a Friday to be handed in the following  Thursday. The children should place their homework book in the green box in the classroom on a morning prior to be collected in on Thursday afternoon. Extra homework can be given if requested by a parent or guardian.

Spellings will go home on a Friday for review for a short test on the following  Friday. They will include slots to practice every day of the following week but we recommend that the children also practise these at others times to improve further. Please stress to your child that this ‘test’ is not anything to worry about - it’s simply a chance to improve their spelling and earn some house points in the process!

We will practise the ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check’ method of learning spellings at school and recommend the children do this at least once every night during the week to commit the spellings to long-term memory!

Look-is there a certain shape to the word? Are there any words within words?

Say-what sounds can you hear in the word?

Cover- cover the word with your hand or a piece of paper and try to visualise the word.

Write-practise writing the word down.

Check-check what you have written down. Have you spelt it correctly?

Reading

The children have been sent home with a home reading book to be practised at home every night. We will be reading with the children in small groups once a week but in order to make good progress in their learning, help is needed from home. Once they have finished their book they will have the opportunity to change it at school. Please make sure that whenever you read with your child to sign their reading journal along with a short comment expressing any concerns or struggles they are having with their reading. Please also feel welcome to read a variety of books with your child to expand their knowledge and understanding.
