PLEASE SEND IN YOUR CHILD’S BOOK BAG EVERY DAY
All children will bring home a home reading book from our school library. They will have a set day when they will read with a teacher or learning coach in school. However, you child can change their reading books as often as possible. Please make a brief comment in your child’s Reading Record.
It is important that you read with your child at least three times per week but preferably more. We strive to foster a love of reading in your child and you can support us by talking to them about their book and motivating them by listening to them read aloud.
Recommended books for Year 1
We follow a mastery maths programme and use the White Rose Planning resources. Children are supported in a variety of approaches to their maths work to ensure sound mathematical understanding. The approaches used are as follows:
Concrete – children should have the opportunity to use concrete objects and manipulatives to help them understand what they are doing.
Pictorial – alongside concrete objects, children should use pictorial representations. These representations can then be used to help reason and solve problems.
Abstract – both concrete and pictorial representations should support children’s understanding of abstract methods
An overview of the maths blocks can be viewed below.
Children in Year 1 and 2 should not bring a snack into school as children in these years benefit from the free fruit and milk scheme. They will be able to have their water bottle, milk and a choice of fruit each day.
