This year the children begin their journey through the National Curriculum with the start of more formal lessons. They build on the skills they learned in Reception and apply them, e.g. longer writing opportunities, starting to record more calculations. This does not mean an end to fun and creativity!
Learning does not just happen in school. Our termly newsletters help inform you of our learning in school. Please talk to your child and encourage them to build on this learning, e.g. trips to the local library, talking to family members, using the computer etc. Sound of the week, key words and number bonds are good things to practise weekly and reading is one of the most beneficial things you can do with them. Please remember the 5/7 challenge!
