Spring 1 2022 – Traditional Tales

Knowledge Organiser Spring 1

I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and I hope that you had a restful Christmas break.

It was lovely to welcome the children back and I am looking forward to the term ahead.

Traditional Tales is our Topic this term where we will be delving into a variety of Traditional Tales that we know and love and some new ones from alternative perspectives.

Our PE lessons will be on a Tuesday and Friday afternoon. This half term our Friday PE will be Dance led by a Dance specialist. Tuesday’s session will be teacher led by me where the children will take part in team games working on tactics of defence and attack.

We will continue with Spellings on Friday’s the same as last term.  Please could you encourage and support your children to practise these at home on a weekly basis.

The children have done so well with their reading last term and I would love to keep up the momentum and their confidence moving forward. Reading helps the children across the whole curriculum so I would stress the importance of continuing with reading at home and to write in reading diaries when your child has read.

Thank you for your continued support

Dear parents,

Firstly, I just wanted to say how proud we are of all the children for settling in so well to the new school year especially as some of the children hadn’t had the chance to meet me in the summer term.

I am writing to you to let you know a few key events in your child’s week for this half term. Hopefully, your children will have already told you that our current topic for this half term is ‘At the Zoo’ – all the children have been very excited about our learning. We will be doing PE twice a week which we will aim to do on a Wednesday and Friday and we are fortunate that both sessions are being led by professional sports coaches. Please ensure all children have appropriate kit and trainers in school all week. We will be taking it in turns to do a show and tell as a class on a Monday but I will send your child an individual letter the Friday before to let you know that it is their turn, this is so children can prepare an item in advance and the class will have the opportunity to ask follow up questions during show and tell. We test spellings on a Friday morning every week this is the same for both year groups.

The children work really hard when in school so we want to ensure that the work they are expected to do at home is manageable but also really important for their progress. We build up our reading skills during class time but this is helped tremendously by your support at home too. We request that you read 5 times a week at home this is to build the foundations to your child becoming a confident reader who enjoys a range of texts. Please record your reading in the reading records each time you read with your child, we then check and stamp the reading records daily. Your child is welcome to change their book more than once a week if we can see they are reading at home.  Weekly spellings are to be practised at home and a sticker will be given to children that complete all the spelling attempts in their spelling book.

Finally if your child is in Yr2 they will have already had a letter and log in for Times Table Rock Stars   and I have set each child appropriate times tables to practise. Just 10 minutes practise at a time will have a great impact on your child’s progress and we will begin times tables quiz’s after half term.

Thank you for your continued support.
