Good Morning Larch Class,
We hope you have had a lovely weekend and managed to get some rest as well as lots of fun!
In English, for the rest of this half-term, we will be looking at Traditional Tales. We won’t say much else as we don’t want to spoil it!
With regards to spellings, this extract has been lifted from the Year 1 National Curriculum:
‘At this stage pupils will be spelling some words in a phonically plausible way, even if sometimes incorrectly. Misspellings of words that pupils have been taught to spell should be corrected; other misspelt words should be used to teach pupils about alternative ways of representing those sounds.’ For example, if a child is writing ‘beach’ but they’ve spelt it ‘beech’, this is correct to us at this stage as they have spelt it using the sounds they know albeit not the correct ‘ea’ sound.
This week for topic, we will be focusing on Science, particularly animals found at the seaside. Some of this can be a bit tricky and more challenging, so don’t worry if you find it tricky to begin with. You will find that you go back to this area of science all the way through school!
Lots of love,
Mrs Carpenter and Miss Jones
