Well done Metis class you were great ambassadors for Studley Green! The film Sing was wonderful and it was great for us to go with all our friends.
Each term Year 1 have a different topic name to help link all their learning. This term, Term 1 the topic is 'Ahoy matey!'
This pirate based topic will link our learning of human beings, how to be healthy and care about our bodies and staying fit. There will be lots of different things going on throughout the term so please visit often.
Homework in Metis class
|Reading at home||Each week we hope that you will have time to hear your child read 4 times and record this in their reading diary. They will be given 4 books to practice and read more than once over the course of a week and then we will change all 4. This will give the children a choice of text and time to completely internalise it.|
|Each Friday the children will practice learning to read spell words linked to their phonics and high frequency words.|
|Maths or English homework||Each week your child will receive a piece of homework linked to their reading book or maths learning. It will be explained to them so they can complete it independently but your support is always welcome.|
Have a look below at things we did last year!

WOW! We have had a wonderful day learning about unusual animals. We have been great scientists: asking questions, being calm and using our senses to observe. Please talk to them about what we have been learning and what they think and congratulate them for being brave, calm and showing respect for animals.
We made toys out of clay and we made toy cars to complete a challenge!
