Mr Johnson teaches P.E. every Wednesday morning. As the cooler months approach please remember to put joggers and sweat shirt into your child’s PE bag so that they can continue to enjoy PE lessons outside.
To help your child’s learning please try to listen to them read every day. Your child can bring home a book from the class library every week to read at home. This book may be quite challenging, so you can read it together. Children still enjoy being read to even though they are working hard at practising their independent reading.
In Maths your child needs to know the numbers up to 10 very well. Make sure that they can solve addition and subtraction facts quickly up to 10 because this will help them to add two digit numbers together easily. Practise counting forwards and back to 100 so that they can instantly recall 1 more than or one less than any number to 100. Practice counting forwards and backwards in tens starting at any number. Help your child to learn by heart the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables.
Homework is sent out every Friday. Please try to do homework. It will support your child by reinforcing what we have been learning in class.
