Welcome! We are Roe Class – Reception and Year 1
We are taught by Mrs Gibson and Mrs Hicks.
Dear Parents and Carers,
Happy New Year! We are looking forward to an exciting Spring Term in Roe Class where our learning will be based around the theme of “Once upon a time in a land of dragons, knights and castles…” Take a look at our topic web to see the different learning that the children will explore and how we will be making links across the curriculum in our writing, science, understanding of the world around us and creativity.
Please continue to support your child at home with reading ~ a short daily read is essential to children becoming fluent and confident readers. This could include practising letter sounds, blending sounds to read individual words and learning tricky words. It is also important to ask questions about what they have read, whether they like a particular character or which words help describe something to them. This makes a huge difference to their ability to comprehend texts in addition to mastering the mechanics of reading.
In maths, you can support your child by counting and recognising numbers (to 100 in year 1 and to 20 in reception). In class we will focus on addition and subtraction, including counting in 2s, 5s and 10s in year 1. You could challenge your child to know their number bonds, first of all to 5, then to 10 and in year 1 to 20.
Please remember, we are always here to help, so do share any concerns you may have or talk to us about your child’s progress on a regular basis.
With kind regards
