Homework Tasks

We are reading...

Tiger child.jpg

This is a traditional folk story. The Tiger is cooking his tea one night and his fire goes out.  So he sends his nephew to the village to get more fire.  When's nephew gets to the village, he can't remember why he went.  There is a twist at the end of the story as he settles into village life!(Click image to listen).

What are we learning this half-term?

In english and maths we will be working hard to catch-up on lots of key skills that will help us succeed in Year 1. We know lots of you worked hard during lockdown if you couldn't come to school, but we think this little boost will be really helpful.

In science, we will begin by looking at different materials and their properties. 

In history, we will be investigating The Great Fire of London.  We will learn about Samuel Pepys and how he recorded the events from the time in his diary.  We will learn about how the fire started, why it spread so quickly and how it was finally put out.

In PE we'll begin by doing some athletics work.  We will be outside when we can for PE so please make sure you wear jogging bottoms with your T shirt and sweat shirt to keep you warm.

In RE we will exploring the wonders of nature.


We will also have to make art and design pieces to make our classroom look exciting and colourful.

Other Useful Information

For the first couple of weeks, we will not be sending reading books and diaries home, but please encourage your child to read their own books at home also.

PE will happen on Tuesdays for Year 1, and you will have read that children should come to school already in their PE uniform - we will not be changing at school.

You may contact me on Class Dojo but enquiries of a general school nature should be directed to the school office. Please use our contact link above for details.
